In Which I Take a Flying Leap Into the World of Instagram
Once in a while, I just jump off a cliff into a lake. Metaphorically. Usually I consider decisions for quite a while before making them, but once in a while, I do just decide to do something on a whim. Three days ago, I joined Instagram. It wasn't exactly a whim, as I've been curious about #bookstagram for a while, but when I read this post from Musings of Jamie, it really encouraged me to try Instagram out. I considered it for about ten minutes and then went ahead and joined it! Most of those ten minutes was spent figuring out if I should join under my own name or under Hamlette, and in the end, I decided it might be a good and fun way to interact with readers of my books, so I'm there under my real name. You can find and follow me there @RachelKovaciny :-)
No sooner had I joined than I discovered an Instagram challenge revolving around J. R. R. Tolkien's stories. #MiddleEarthMarch looks like it's going to be a ton of fun, and I've already done a post based on the first prompt today! Here's a list of all the prompts:
I might not actually post something for each of those, we'll see. But there's probably going to be a lot of Tolkien-related stuff from me this month, just so you know. On a whole, though, I will probably end up posting about the same sorts of things I blog about: books, my writing, movies, flowers, baking, etc. I'm not very good at limiting myself to one or two subjects for things like this just because I have so many interests!
Anyway, if you're on Instagram and want to follow me, now you can :-)
