A year ago, through my first Blogging Your Way e-course, I connected with a woman online from the upper West coast named Sandra.
She is a thoughtful hardworking creative. She does a million other things besides write a blog at
Raincoast Creative Salon. One of them is to inspire me.
She and her friend Christie Jones, a blogger at Bedsidedesign, created a challenge on Instagram for the month of October
In addition to my 31 Days of Pretty Picture posts, I was shooting daily pictures prompted by chosen words or phrases.
And, like being immersed in a country and it’s language and culture, I got to know the world of Instagram
enough to be comfortable and earn some friends.
Then last week, I was tagged to do a the 5 shot challenge where you shoot pictures with one theme for five days in a row and tag a new person with a new theme each day. As nervous as I was, I ended up feeling like a champion Instagrammer by the end.
I am indebted to these women who organize us to challenge ourselves and create community. This is Indie Rock and Roll to me.
