Sydney abcd meet-up: let's talk about Instagram

Let's face it - you're probably over Facebook. Twitter is an endless stream of noise. And Pinterest is perfection, but a bit of a solitary pursuit. So why not check out Instagram? This social media platform is tailor-made for those of us who prefer to communicate via images instead of just words. It's full of interesting, creative people sharing happy things. Interested to hear more, or share your thoughts?

Lisa (the red thread) and I are hosting an Instagram-themed Sydney abcd meet-up for art, craft and design bloggers! We will be meeting for a leisurely pot luck afternoon tea on Saturday 3rd November from 3-5pm in Lilyfield's Callan Park. Bring along a little something sweet to share with everyone; tea and coffee will be available to purchase from Sweet Jane's Travelling Teahouse. How fun. And... the Sydney Instagram Meet-up folks will be joining us!

There will be lots of interesting new people to meet from the Sydney Instagram group (organised by the fabulous Jaclyn (little paper trees) and Jayde (little paper lane)), and for those who are interested, we'll dedicate about 40 minutes to small-group discussions with the aim of sharing ideas and learning more about Instagram, and how to use it as a personal and professional tool. Each group will be led by one of our friends from the Sydney Instagram group to provide their expertise.

Want to join us? RSVP right here on Lisa's blog the red thread. No goodie bags this time, but we do appreciate you bringing a plate of something homemade to share for afternoon tea.

We would also love for you to provide us with some feedback in our online survey. If you weren't able to fill the survey out at our last meet-up, please clickhere to share your thoughts on how to make our abcd meet-ups work best for you.

We can't wait to see you there,

Steph & Lisa
