Follow me on Instagram

“Resistance is futile,” was the motto of the Borg on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Well, I resisted for a long time but I’ve finally given in and joined the 150 million folks who are already using Instagram.

The goal is not to replace this blog—far from it—but to utilize yet another social media channel to share photos I take on my cell phone. Instagram offers a variety of tools to process photos, add effects, etc.—all on the fly, right from your mobile device. The image quality isn’t great, but these pictures are primarily meant to be consumed on a small mobile display anyway.

I started to use Instagram at the beginning of my Southern California/Arizona trip and have had a lot fun with it over the last five days.

To follow me on Instagram, search for “succulentsandmore” in your mobile app. Or, from your desktop, go to http://instagram.com/succulentsandmore/.

  1. Guess this means I'm the only non-Instagramer left on the planet. Several people were trying to talk me into joining up during the Fling but I just haven't gotten around to it. What made you take the plunge?

    1. My daughters are on Instagram and I wanted to follow them--and then I realized how many other people I know post pictures there. It's a great way to share photos that would otherwise never appear on my blog.

  2. Yay! I look forward to seeing your photos... I love how easy Instagram makes it for me to sneak little bits of inspiration throughout my day. Blogs are great (even if I suck at maintaining mine!) and IG is another way to share even more pictures of my favorite bloggers' gardens! (And Ruth Bancroft is on IG! You'll love their images!)

    1. Renee, I'll make a valiant effort to keep it up. What's your Instagram user name so I can follow you? And I'll be sure to follow the RBG--I love their Tumblr feed.
