The Instagram Challenge & The Power and Community in Our Hashtags!

Hello, Gorgeous and Wild Thing.
Can we talk about for a minute how crazy this whole #cuteasfuck revolution and the #dangerdiary challenge has been blowing up?
You make things spread like wildfire.
Come and sit next to me.
I bet we’re a lot alike if you’ve wandered over to the Danger Diary….
You crave new artistic sparks.
You fiend for something to send you into an inspired-fingertips-flying-writing frenzy.
You live for getting in that space between this world and that world while making something creative.
Am I right?

You gain inspiration from the world around you
to create a world of your OWN.

I’m talking about the 28 Day Danger Diary Instagram Challenge. (If you haven’t started yet, click on the link and join us!)

Right now
there is 3,856 entries with the #dangerdiarychallenge tag.

And many nights, before I fall asleep, sitting in my window perch in the apartment, with the city glowing all around me, I scroll through your lives, your pictures, the things you see every day…..and I feel like we are closer than we are….that distance cannot separate us.

In those moments, in these days,
I’ve seen through your eyes.

You showed me what you would save from a fire.

You shared creative “selfie in a mirror” – reflections in lakes count

You shared with us,
the Story of YOU.

Thank you to all that have been participating. I know some of you will be finished tomorrow. Some of us fell behind a little because they were sick and stayed out too late at the Slipper Room *ahem*. And some of us haven’t yet begun (or are taking little breaks). I will keep checking out the #dangerdiarychallenge tag every night….to connect with you no matter where in the world you are.

You will never know how much you mean to me.

Love it? Share it.
