This is my filing cabinet at work. It's covered in Instagrammed photos. Finally, my affinity for filtered photos can spread beyond social media and my phone to real life. I can tout my fake skills for photography on my computer case, my fridge, my coffee table ... the possibilities are endless. And yes, I'm saying this all in a snarky voice, however, I am seriously excited about these Instagram-inspired startups, such as Stickygram, Casetagram, and Artifact Uprising.
Usually, I am not a picture-taker. I'm always too embarrassed to whip out the camera or it just doesn't cross my mind to pause and force people to pose. But since the advent of Instagram, I haven't been shy about telling everyone, "stop moving and shut up -- I need to Instagram this!" So, now that my undying need to prove myself as a funloving social butterfly who goes on awe-inspiring adventures has forced me to capture even the most mundane moments, I actually have proof of my most precious memories. Of course, I have to turn them into something tangible. At least so even those who don't follow me in the social sphere can still see that I am, in fact, a funloving social butterfly who goes on awe-inspiring adventures.
