Calling All Instagramers!

by Nicole

I finally did it! I joined the Instagram party! I held out for a long time, but gave in a few days ago.

Here’s one of my first posts.

The photo is of a W.i.P. I’m working on the paper bag challenge of the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild. The reveal was back in October. Yup – I’m late. Life happens, but I’ll get it done. It’s just might take me a minute or a month!  

I’m still figuring things out on Instagram and would love to hear from Instagramers. What’s the most important thing I need to know about using Instagram? Are there any unwritten “rules” of etiquette that I should be aware of?

If you’re on Instagram, let me know. I’d love to follow you!

Follow me over @TheShortMunchkin, it's a wonderful way to meet people. I have made a number of internet quilty friends via Instagram – people are more willing to comment, it seems, than on my blog. Also I post more frequently to Instagram since it's a quick click.

I will check back to see what you hear as to the rules. I love instagram and will go and follow you right away. I tend to follow those who follow me. I don't fret about going back to catch up when I am away from it. I do answer questions and when I have time I thank people for comments but mostly I just read what people say and leave it at that, or else it becomes too much time for me. No one seems to mind. It is a great way to get quick input with a question too. It is way more fun that twitter too.

I just followed you! I've found Instagram pretty addicting, I have to admit. If you follow me back, you must be warned–there are a lot of cat pictures on there (although I believe "cute pet pictures" is a pretty major part of IG!)

Ha ha! I just caved to IG last week! I'm curious as to any etiquette rules, too, although it seems pretty casual. I'll go follow you now 🙂

Yay! Welcome to Instagram – I love it. I'm paperstarfish if you want to find me!

I suspect one rule is to check it more often than when you're on your holidays ;o)

The IG party will have to go on without me. I'm already addicted to Pinterest and my sewing machine is wondering where the heck I've been…

I'm daisylizp, but I use flickr a little more for staying in touch. It's funny, I like the instagram filters much better so I take a lot of pics there but just to post them to flickr. I'm headed to IG now to follow you though!
