So there’s this thing called Instagram…have you heard of it?!
I know I’m about 5 years late to this particular party, but I finally joined last week. Once I did I immediately understood what all the fuss is about! I hope you’ll come and follow along. There’s also a link and a peek at what I’m posting over on the side bar.
One of the first things I realized is that it becomes so much easier to find out about cool events that your friends and fellow authors are putting together. I have been a long time fan of Maggie Battista’s site, Eat Boutique so of course I followed her on Instagram. When it popped up that she’d be hosting a book signing at Farm & Fable, a gorgeous shop in Boston, I decided to attend. I’m so glad that I did- not only was it a great to meet Maggie in person, but I also walked away with a signed copy of her gorgeous book, Food Gift Love. I definitely tend to the introverted side, especially when it comes to networking in my field. I am much happier behind my camera, or squirreled away in my studio. But when I force myself out into the world I’m always glad I took the leap. It feels great to get out there and meet people who are passionate about creating things of beauty. And I can assure you, after a quick flip through her book, Maggie has created quite a thing of beauty. I feel like I have Instagram to thank for a great event, and I can’t wait to see where else it will lead me!
