I had a great idea.
As part of the Thanksgiving Conspiracy, I was going to ask people to take photos of things for which they are grateful. I was going to invite them to post those photos on Instagram or Facebook. I was even going to call it the “Instagratitude” project. Catchy, right?
I thought it would be great to publicly share with our friends things for which we are grateful. If we’re going to start a movement to create a Thanksgiving Season, we need some shared activity, right?
Just as I was writing the post to introduce my great idea, it occurred to me that I should search “instagratitude” just in case someone has already used that tag. Who knows, maybe someone was tagging those sickeningly cute kitten pictures with “instagratitude” – it never hurts to check.
Sure enough, someone else had my great idea. Allie Creative in Portland, OR.
Not only that, but Allie has articulated the great idea in a far more winsome way than I ever could. She’s created nifty web badges and a really well-designed logo. And she’s inviting the world to join her in 30 days of Instagratitude.
I think this could become a great Thanksgiving Season holiday tradition. I encourage you to visit her site and learn about the 30 Days of Instagratitude project. If you feel so led, then jump on board.
I’m going to give it a shot (though I don’t promise daily posts – I’ll be happy if I get one up a week). If you’d like to see my photos on Instagram, look for me – my handle is possiblehorizon.
