One time I made a twitter account. I promptly forgot the password and never logged in again. I don’t have an Instagram account. My Facebook page often goes months without a single status update. The existence of my blog proves that I’m not shunning all forms of social media, but I’m certainly hesitant when it comes to sharing my life on the internet. I view this blog as a writing and communication tool, and while I know that other social media outlets can be just as purposeful, they aren’t for me, at least for now. However, the concept of creating a record of little moments–a log of images and simple sentences–is completely appealing to me. So until I take the plunge and open an Instagram account, I’ve found another way to keep track of moments and images that remain for my eyes only. A lot of people already sing the praises of Day One, a journal app for mac, iPhone, and iPad, but I only discovered it last year. I can snap a picture with my phone, attach a few sentences, save it, share it (if I’m in the mood), or print it in a book. My private version of Instagram!
