Since last I failed NaBloPoMo, President Barack Obama was re-elected decisively, and the marriage equality initiatives in four states -- Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington -- passed. I slept very little for 48 hours because I was nervous, and I wasn't really sure what to say, other than "please please please" and finally, thank you. Tonight I came up for air, and found out that I have access to the legit Instagram web viewer for my account.
This is like Instagram Christmas for a mobile photo dork like me.
I am (really) active on Twitter. I am on Facebook a lot. I care about Pinterest and FourSquare, Yelp and FoodSpotting and all of the other food and travel apps that populate my iPhone.
But I really love Instagram.
My profile is here if you'd like to follow me.
I also really, really need to raise some money for Charity:Water, because I have a big event coming up next week and my team needs help. I'll be telling you more about that tomorrow or this weekend, but in the meantime, if you'd like to pitch in $20 for my campaign, I will happily make you a print of one of my Instagram shots.
What, some of them are pretty!
I'll be expanding this to some of my DSLR photos when I talk to you next, and splitting any proceeds over and above the $200 I need to raise (not a lot, right?) with a vetted Hurricane Sandy relief source.
Too much water or not enough, there is so much need in the world. It's been weighing on me hard, mostly because I don't feel like my access to funds and my lack of proximity to New York/New Jersey is enough to help anyone at all.
But I can still pitch in to get a big well dug in Rwanda, and some more to help my neighbors to the North, who are on my mind day and night. I know it's tough times for everyone, but I still feel compelled to spread the word. I'd Kickstarter everyone, if I could.
