A New Toy



November roses
A few pics I took today via Instagram

When I woke up today, I actually stayed in bed for several hours (something I NEVER do unless I’m sleeping) and whiled away the time on Instagram. I guess that counts towards my “creative activities” time. Does anyone here know about Instagram? It’s a free app you can get for iPhone or Android, which allows you to take pictures and use a bunch of artistic filters, which you post on their site and others like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and Flickr, to name just those (you can also mail them to friends and such). Then people can “like” the photos and/or comment on them, and “follow” you, just like you can with a blog. I’ve started following some pretty creative photographers, which I found by doing searches for tags like “travel” or “cityscape” and so on. It’s all pretty new to me so I’m still figuring out what you can do with this, and want to find a way to post my photos here on From Smiler, with Love. Though wondering… should they go on createthreesixty5 instead? I’ve taken some 125 photos with the app so far, but you can also post photos taken from you camera—though I haven’t figured out exactly how to do that yet. I also don’t know how to send anyone to my photo stream yet…

WAIT! I just found the web link! http://instagram.com/smiler_69/
Most of my pics can also be viewed on Facebook and on my Tumblr page, The Stolen Child.

    • I’m still figuring out how all these various sites are linking up together. FSWL > Facebook > Tumblr > Twitter. Instagram > FB > Tubmlr… FB > FB, etc. I guess I need to draw out a chart or something because so far I haven’t figured out a) exactly what shows up where and if everything gets collected in one place and b) how to make sure the same exact posts don’t get doubled or tripled or quadrupled up in any one of those places.

      But now you mention it, I guess my Tumblr page (The Stolen Child) does get hit with the major stuff. Had I thought of it I would have directed you there sooner. I forget I have that page because I never posts there directly, it just collects stuff from my other web activities, as it were, and as far as I know, nobody has visited it so far. Glad you found it all the same! :-) xx
