Congrats to Instagram!
To tell you what Instagram has meant to me in the past several months would seem like so much hyperbole, you’d just respond with a big, fat, “Nuh uh!” Let me try though…
When I’ve been stressed or worried about my future, I’ve tapped the Instagram icon on my phone, iPod Touch or iPad. I follow some geeks, but mostly I follow people who post pictures of pretty things, or at least make pretty pictures of ugly things. Call it a Flinch if you’d like, but I call it peace. With all due respect to John Stewart, Instagram provides my daily moments of zen. I open the App, and all of a sudden, I’m on a 5 minute vacation. That’s why I love it.
Today Apple named Instagram App of the Year. It’s certainly been my App of the year. For me it’s the place I go to experience a constant stream of prettiness.
You can say, “Nuh uh!” I’ll just say, “Uh huh!” Let’s not argue. Congratulations Instagram! Well deserved!
