If you're like me, when you're not researching, you're writing. When you're not researching or writing, you're spending time with family. All else is time at the office or hours spent in a vegetative state on the couch watching The Vampire Diaries on Netflix. For everything else, if it's not fun, I'm not interested.
This is why I love Instagram. And as I posted a few weeks ago, young adults prefer it to Pinterest.

What it is: A photo-sharing social media platform for mobile phone users.
A few stats (from May also, great infographic here)

- The platform gains one user every second
- One billion photos have been taken with the app
- Most followed celebrities:

The beauty of Instagram is that it gives you the chance to create some stunning photos that share fascinating stories. And that's what we're all about right?
Plus, with the fear of using copyrighted images, we all need more photos for our blogs. You could even build a whole blog post using Instagram photos. Katy Upperman knows what I'm talking about.
So how do you do it? Here's a fun guide :)
