My new best friend (or obsession, however you look at it)


When I find something I like, I LIKE it, I LOVE it and become completely obsessed with it and right now? I'm obsessed.

I have found this great app and it's called Instagram.

Oh, did you say it's not new? You've had it for ages? Fine.

Kidding.

Yes, I know it's not new. I've had it for as long as I've had my iPhone,  I just didn't use it. I felt like it would be one more step in taking and posting pictures, so I just didn't use it. I'm lazy like that.

Boy, oh boy was I ever WRONG. It's not an extra step at all. In fact, it makes things EASIER and if you've ever wanted to "like" a tweet a la Facebook, then Instagram is your new BFF. I love the like feature on there and I think I that I like almost every single photo that people post.

I know I'm late to this party, but I just had to profess my Instagram love in a blog post.

Do you use Instagram regularly? If not, why not?

Here is one of my favorite photos taken recently. Doesn't the cloud look like a dog?!  (and for those of you that follow me on Twitter and Instagram. I am sorry, I'm not sorry for all the Instagram pictures I am posting) 

BTW, is there a way to upload these pictures onto your computer? I spent way too much time trying to figure out how and I ended up just taking a screen shot of this one!

That does look like a dog!! Very cool! I actually do not use instagram. I just felt like it would just be one more ap to manage... I like the editing you can do with it so maybe I will get it eventually. In general, I am a late adopter of technology. It took a lot of prodding from Becky and Amber to get me on twitter. I still am not on pinterest and don't know if i ever will be, and I'm not on instagram! It just takes me awhile to come around to trends, I guess!

I'm totally with you on being late to the Instagram party. JUST figured it out a month or so ago and am way obsessed!

What's your username? I'd love to follow along.

Not into Instagram. Am into clouds.

Not surprised that you fell in love with Instagram. At first, I thought "do I really need one more social media outlet?" and I quickly decided "yes, I need it in the form of instagram":)

Once I got my iPhone back in October, I quickly downloaded Instagram and have been hooked ever since. It's just a fun way to share pictures and makes them look so much better, ha! I'm totally on the Instagram bandwagon.

The only way I've found to be able to load pictures on my computer is to click on the picture in my camera roll and email it to myself. A pain, but that's the only way I can do it!

Ah, instagram, how I love thee.

I don't have instagram. At first it was because I have a droid and that didn't used to be able to get it. But now it can, and I still don't have it. I guess I just feel like I don't need another obsession.

I have it on my phone but I never use it because my phone is so old that every time I open it and try to post, my phone shuts down! So I got out of the habit of using it.
