jumping on the bandwagon

I had been holding out against Pinterest for a while now.  I didn't want another reason to spend time on my computer.  I guess that's understandable considering how much of a time suck it can be.  How hours can disappear into the black hole of the internet.  And then, the other day, I gave in.  I'm not sure what convinced me.  A desire for some inspiration?  I don't know.  But now I'm on there.  Are you?  Do you like it?  So far it's been fun.  And I haven't squandered hours of my time.

The other bandwagon I recently leapt onto was Instagram.  I bought the app ages ago but didn't start using it because I didn't want to have to create yet another account.  But then, for some reason, I decided that I would try it out.  I didn't look for friends or any of those social media things you're supposed to do with it, but I quickly became addicted to taking photos with it and playing with all the filters.  I'm sure you've probably noticed that (almost) all the photos I've been using recently have been Instagram photos (my snowflake mobile how-to was just an excuse to take more photos with it!).  I loved using Hipstamatic, but I love to be able to see right away what my photo's going to look like and choose the filter I like the most for the shot I've just taken.


















I guess I'm easily amused.  But sometimes that's a good thing, don't you think?

  3. I haven't tried any of those things. I haven't got an iphone which is unfortunate because I like the effects instagram offers. And haven't even heard of Pinterest but will take a look (although I need to cut down rather than take on any more internet.lol.).

    I especially love the feather and the truck/car in snow photos. So many stories could be told using these as inspiration!

    I agree its definitely good to be amused, easily or anyhow. :-))
