More Afthead upgrades came with the new year! Can you believe it? I mentioned in my last post that I started list of books I’m reading because I “can’t handle another social media time sucker like Goodreads.” Well, I snubbed Goodreads because I had already started another social media time sucker. Yes, dear readers, Afthead is now on Twitter and Instagram! (Instagram is the new one.) So exciting!
I picked Instagram because the past year I found myself taking pictures with the thought “I’m going to write a blog post about this.” However, life and time move on and I don’t always write the post. Instagram gives me a platform for writing microstories about little things that tickle my Afthead.
So if you want to follow my Instagram feed you can either check it out on my blog – I added the Instagram widget – or you can click the Instagram button in my “Socially Inept” section or you can just look for “Aftheaded” on Instagram. (This is all if you just didn’t click the links in the post already.) Already there are sixteen pictures ranging from a snowchicken, bird poop, a threek, and inappropriate rocks: note only two of my pictures actually made it into blog posts, so my experiment is working. (I mean, if you ignore this post…) Join my 16 followers for a peek into the visual Afthead world.
Oh, and if anyone else has ever wanted to add the Instagram widget to their blog and ended up weeping in frustration, let me direct you to this support post. I had to add the widget from the WordPress Admin, not from the page where you customize your theme. Ah, the work I do to keep things fresh and interesting around here.
