A year in Instagram

If you’re on Instagram you’ve probably seen about a million of these already. For those not in the know, spinoff site Statigram lets any Instagram users compile a quick video of their 5 most liked photos from the year. It’s been fun looking back at people’s pictures, and I was intrigued to see which of my shots got the most crowd appreciation.

Since my phone is only slightly more useful than a brick, I can’t post video to Instagram itself, so I figured I’d share here. I’ve clearly lost some blogging momentum in the second half of this year, but you’ll still find me pretty religiously dedicated to Instagram – follow Emily in Chile┬áthere or just enjoy this quick summary.

Of my travel photos, Russia and Peru made the cut. Moscow at sunset is certainly deserving of the love, as is a truly top notch lunch at Mercado in Lima that I haven’t gotten around to writing about yet (oops). People love Lola, as they should. And apparently you guys are suckers for a good red lipstick. But perhaps the best part is that since creating this video a few days ago, a new photo has swooped in to take the title of my most-liked picture ever.

Moral of the story? Travel, cute dogs and hot make-up are all fab, but nothing beats acting like a crazy person with your significant other and delicious food. That sounds like a pretty good takeaway from 2013. Happy New Year!

    Can’t get the hang of Instagram. Google plus is where we all bloggers should be. Nice post.

      I totally disagree that there’s a “should”. Bloggers “should” be wherever they want and wherever they find the best value for their time – that’s going to depend on each person’s style, audience and goals. I am not on Google+ and have no interest in it, so even if I were to make an account I wouldn’t get much value out of being signed up and never using it.

      Thanks, Carine! I finally just posted again, although I can’t make any promises about how long my motivation will last :) Hope you’re well!
