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 there 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!
