Sometimes I feel like I post more on Instagram than my blog. I’ve noticed a trend in blogging lately, and I’m seeing more and more bloggers going JUST to Instragram and leaving their blogs completely. I’m not ready for that yet. I enjoy the writing process almost as much as photography. I do, however, love the fact that I can post pictures and do a tiny bit of writing all from my phone. I also love the hashtags that I can add, to help find other people with similar interests.
The picture, above, is one of those “small world” kind of things. My sister and I were driving through Snohomish and saw this beautiful sight. She pulled over to the side of the road so I could take a picture. Little did I know, that two of those balloons were filled with families that we know! So cool!
On International Dot Day (that’s a special day created by author Peter Reynolds) we posted some of our creations.
Since it’s apple season, we made applesauce in Kindergarten. I made a quick collage to show what we had been up to that day.
I couldn’t resist this photo. I had gotten to work early and snapped a picture with my new boots and my cool mug. I never have time to relax with my feet up, but it was still very early and I just had to share with my Instagram friends.
As you can see, many of my posts are school related. Here is a recent picture showing our sunflowers drying and ready for observation. I have found lots of great hashtags that other teachers and Reggio Emilia enthusiasts use.
I’d love to find more friends on Instagram. Are you on it? Who do you follow? My username is homeiswheremystorybegins. I hope you’ll come find me!
Happy photo taking!
Are you on Instagram? I post pictures of home life, my kids, family vacations, and school life on my Instagram account. Come join me! My user name is homeiswheremystorybegins. I’d love it if you would follow me.
I’ve been using hashtags, which my 14 year old reminds me that using hashtags does not make me cool. Ha! I was on Instagram before the teen crowd had even discovered it!
If you are a teacher or parent with kids at home, you might be interested in a few of my favorite hashtags for the teaching and learning crowd. #CTInquiry is a great one that is inquiry based. #teachersofinstagram, #allaboutinquiry, and #makelearningvisible are all hashtags that I’m starting to use.
This summer I’ve been posting lots of pictures of my kids enjoying their leisure time, but I also like to post photos of our crafts, hobbies, recipes, and just pretty photos or interesting things.
Come join me, friends! Help me prove to my 14 year old that I have followers who are old enough to drive. I’d love to find other friends to follow who are my age! Please introduce yourself in the comments so I can find you and follow you back!
