Sew at Home Mummy, now on Instagram.

5:30:00 AM

Good morning, all!

I have (finally?) entered the world of Instagram. And I have no idea what I'm doing.


No. Seriously. I don't.

I am one of the very few people, who up until December, didn't have a smart phone/tablet/iDevice {GASPS!}.

I'll be honest - I have no idea what I'm doing with it (the phone) half the time. And I'm pretty computer/tech savvy. Well, relatively speaking, for someone with no formal training.

So adding Instagram was always on my to-do list when I got a phone I could actually use Instagram on; only problem is, now I don't know what the heck I'm doing on Instagram.

I know I just need time to sit and navigate it, but I don't get it! I've been on Flickr for a while now, and I don't really see the difference between the two.

Help? lol!

And I know it's like Flickr where you want to follow a bunch of people, right? and then you get updates on their photo streams, right?

HELP! lol!

So! I'm

Will you follow me so I can follow you?

...and fancy Instagram spool icon for right sidebar to follow....

  1. I am tech incompetent, but Instagram is relatively easy for me. Not that I'm obsessed with it as much as some people, but I do like it once in a while.

  2. I am not on it. I have the app on my iPad but have never set it up. I already do more techy than sewy

  3. ellison lane helped me, I will send you her email to me..

  4. I don't even have a mobile phone, so you all are way ahead of me in the tech department.

  5. I bought myself a smart phone last year so that I could join in with instagram but I never got round to it. Now one of the dogs has bitten my phone and it no longer works. Hope you get sorted soon.

  6. P.S. Melissa of Happy Quilting just got a little device and also just joined Instagram.
    Maybe you guys can become BIF's (best instagram friends)

  7. I will follow you..I am pretty new to instagram and don't know how to to much but like, comment and add pics! :) Welcome!

  8. I am new to Instagram too, I will follow you. I've been putting the classic meets modern blocks on there and got some likes!

  9. Don't feel bad. I know how to follow and sometimes I get a post right but I have no idea how to repost or anything else. I got my 25 year old to show me and I think she went too fast.

  10. I'm useless to you. I have only a dumb phone.

  11. like you i joined but totally lost, have managed to follow a couple of people but as to adding photos no idea. Same with pinterest but flickr I find so easy. Will check out melissa`s link and see if I get anywhere

  12. Well, shoot. If you're on Instagram, then I'll have to join too, just so I can follow you! I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and perhaps you've just pushed my over the fence! Thanks, I'll let you know how I land.
