Oofah. I'm a little late to share this news on here (and another blog post in general) but oh well! It's been a bit crazy around here, especially on Instagram.
Back in January, I got an email from Instagram saying that they were going to list me as a recommended user. And boom! (yes...BOOM) my little follower list went a bit crazy. In less than 3 days it hit 10K. Freaking ridiculous.
The folks behind Instagram also sent me a sweet little package with some stickers, buttons and a little book about the history of Instagram. The interweb love has been lovely.
I know it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of it all but it has certainly been fun connecting with more people on this little app. My Weekly Postcard Project has been pretty well received too. And the boost in traffic for my business has been fantastic!
I probably spend more time on that silly app than I should admit. After a long day of working by myself down in the art bubble, it's really nice to get inspired by all the amazing photos from around the world. There's a great sense of community on there, similar to the community I had back in art school. That's one of the things I miss the most about school, being able to bounce ideas off of your colleagues. So it's really nice to be able to still feel connected to a vibrant and creative community, even from my quiet little art bubble on my beat up little phone.
