Are You On Instagram?

Instagram faves

I am. Sharing my everyday life in little squares, when I feel I have something to share.

I like having these little looks into other people’s lives, and seeing things through the lens of their phone. And I like that people share in very different ways. For some, it’s close to professional quality photos, while others can be about an early morning atmosphere more than a pretty picture. Anyway, I like sharing, and if you do, you should join me – my username is connectingthedotsdk.

If you are new to Instagram, it may be a good idea to take a look at this little guide to Instaquette – The dos and donts of Instagram. There are several nice guides out there – and it makes sense to check back with them once in a while to check if you have fallen into any traps. I do.

One of the things I have been sharing lately, is this project I finished this evening, just before I put the girls to bed.


I really like the way it turned out, and I can’t even show you now, because it’s dark, and impossible to get a nice shot. You may have to wait until the weekend, but let’s see about the light in the next few afternoons. For now, this little taste will have to do.

    Wondering how instaquette will evolve over time if/as the service gains more traction, technology changes, or the World changes in other suble.

    In the early days of twitter it was good twitter etiquette to follow everyone who followed you. That changed as the service grew.

    For instance not everyone can get their twitter handle on instagram. Mine is occupied… :-\
    It will become challenging to have the same alias across anywhere between 3 and 15 social networks…

      It’s funny you should mention that point in particular, because I don’t quite agree with it actually. I don’t have any need to chain my IG and Twitter profiles together. Really, it depends on how you use them. Also, I think people will get rather tired of all this cross-posting before long – if they aren’t already. But you are right – it will be interesting to see them evolve.

A penny for your thoughts?
