My Rose Valley on Instagram

I have entered the Smart phone world. I resisted it for so many years but this year I was given an iPhone5 as a gift. What can I say??? I AM HOOKED. What a great little machine. I am still figuring it all out. How it works with "apps", swishing and swooshing from right to left, tops to bottom... and all that. I have to admit I feel a bit rusty, about the technology revolution. I used to be so up to date when working as a graphic designer but has fallen behind enormously after being in the "Mummy bubble" for a good decade.

With a new wonderful phone like this I have of course signed up for Instagram. I actually had a secret dream about getting myself an iPhone just to be able to sign up for Instagram... Silly aha? I am really enjoying it so far. Just been on there for a few days posting some random pictures. Again... I have no clue of how it works...

Can I log in to Instagram and see the feed on my stationary Mac or is it only for the iPhone? Shall I be open to public or close to approve my followers? How does the Copyright of photos work? How do I put in hearts. :D ♥... What is hash # bla bla bla...??? Can I publish my Instagram photos on my blog? Any start up advice is welcome. Lets have some IG fun!!!

PS Thank you for your supportive comments on my last post. It is good to hear from others that I am doing the best I can as a mother. Makes me feel stronger and more confident that I am doing pretty good after all. :D

  1. Ha ha haaaa I did the same! I use Instagram all the time.
    I keep my photos private and don't allow followers, also don't feed to Facebook.
    Enjoy your phone 😀

    1. Hi Stel
      Thanks for your advice. I might just open a private account for personal pictures and just publish My Rose Valley stuff on this one... Haven't really made a plan yet. I am enjoying the phone though... More than I thought I would. :D

    1. Believe me, I have been hesitant to take this leap but now when I have done it I am so pleased. I think you can still see my pics even though you don't have your own Smart phone. Just follow the link. :D

  4. I rarely use my cell phone even to make phone calls *lol!* My #1 daughter just ordered her 'smart phone' (a christmas pressie!) maybe she'll let me borrow hers? Nah...*grin* Congrats on the new phone!

    1. Hi Dana,
      I am like you. For years I've had the "button" phone with a cash card, using maybe 30 dollars worth of text messaging and calls... Therefor I always talked myself out of the Smart phone urge when I got one... Cause I really REALLY don't need one. But lucky me, someone heard my secret desire... A gift it is from someone totally unexpected (my husbands boss!!!???) so what do you do? You go with it. You borrow your daughter's smartie... It is good fun to play. :D

    2. your husband's boss? Wow! My hubby's boss would never be that generous! good on you! I 'may' take the plunge someday. But I have my eye on a new camera and even another sewing machine (did I just say that? *lol!*
      I am sad that I cannot join in the instagram fun tho *sigh*

      PS...we are finally getting some snow! Let's see how much? We can't do any skiing until we get a decent snow!

  5. Wow! I am still in the dark ages phone wise so I cannot help you! Hope oyu enjoy all the apps!
    Happy New Year to you and your family Annette!

  6. insta is awesome :-) i didn´t figure out how to make those nice emoticons yet... the pictures are not safe at insta, they can do whatever they want, sell them... that´s why i usually don´t post pictures of myself.
    my profile is therefor open. it´s fun to find other crafters, sewers... and there are a lot of bloggers there, too :-)
    don´t be afraid and have fun!
    see ya, pami
