Is Instagram the new way to blog?
I've wondered this for a long time, and it seems like the answer, at least to me, is yes. Call me lazy, but I love that Instagram is a way to connect with a large group of people quickly and effectively, and when done correctly, with meaning. I've loved Instagram from the get-go, but I couldn't let go of my blog, my online diary, the place where I've poured my heart out (much-needed free therapy at the time) and where I've documented my journey since around 2010, when I got hitched and not to long after, we moved back to Athens. My entrepreneurship and my small business have thrived in Athens, a town that supports art and creatives and loves all of us and encourages us. I think living in Athens during this time has really fostered my creative spirit and helped me grow in so many ways. And through it all, I blogged and shared my journey in this little space.
I'm not giving up my blog, and I'll still update my life here from time-to-time. But I update folks daily over on Instagram, with shop news, new products and of course, Archie's stats and mug every so often. It's a wonderful platform that lets me share quickly, lets customers shop through my posts and keeps me connected to "my people." So, if you want to find me, pop on over and say hi and see what I'm up to. In the meantime, I'll be back here soon...!
