Today I'm posting the page I made for Tuesday's Gossamer Blue Insta-Hop. An insta-hop? Like a blog hop, only faster and more fun. We always share some extra inspiration in the middle of the month and to shake things up a little this time round, we turned to instagram. If you're there, you can find me @fromhighinthesky, tap on the photo which looks like the one below, and before you know it, you'll be racing through a whole new gallery of projects for @gossamerblue.
I held out against instagram for years. I thought I didn't need another place to "be". Turns out I was wrong. Not only is instagram stuffed with a brain crunching number of wonderfully creative individuals willing to share what they've been up to, it has also made it easy to click that little heart and show some appreciation of what you are seeing. And because the inspiration is there, I've been encouraged to work on my photos, to find different ways to show my layouts. You could say that everything was coming up roses. (No: you really could. Spring is in the air and my photos have actually been all about the roses this week).
And then..and then came the news of changes. Instagram is reworking the way it displays your feed. It will no longer be arranged chronologically and, instead, an algorithm will be used to decide what you will be seeing, when. This I don't like. I'm thinking about signing the petition at change.org
But I'm also musing over a different take, which I found this morning here at smalltalksocial . It's a persuasive article and definitely worth a look. Let me know what you think!
Oh, and have a good St Patrick's Day if you are planning anything emerald coloured and full of good fortune. I have my March Sock of the Month started, with a touch of green and a plan for added authenticity: if it works out, I'll have learned something new. Stay lucky!
