New Years Instagram Challenge

Instagram became my favorite social media platform in 2013. I’ve connected with some amazing people with wonderful talents and beautiful photos and I love popping on to see what everyone’s doing.

I share photos over there all time – of our barn, my kids, our enormous Great Pyrenees puppy, the passive house we’re building, and my garden and its bounty.

I’m pretty excited to join a bunch of other healthy living bloggers for a New Years Instagram Challenge and I hope you’ll join along!

Starting tomorrow, January 1 2014, we’ll be hosting a mini Instagram challenge. This is such a fun way to meet new people on Instagram, challenge yourself to stay focused on your goals and have fun in the process. Every day you’ll post a picture on Instagram using the themes below. Just make sure that you tag #myclean2014 and @grownandhealthy so we can all see what you post.

How to Participate

  1. Follow @grownandhealthy on Instagram
  2. Take a daily picture using the themes below, tagging #myclean2014 and @grownandhealthy in each so we can find your posts easily!
  3. Check out the other posts under the #myclean2014 thread to see what other great bloggers (and you great readers) are posting as well.

Important: The Instagram URL does not let you choose a profile pic from your feed {for the linky}, so be sure you have a picture you can upload! If you get a “Error: The requested URL returned error: 500” that just means it can’t find a picture to use, it does NOT mean that your link is bad. Click on “Direct Image URL” if you have one or “Upload from Computer”.

  1. What fun Michelle! I actually just download the Instagram app yesterday and plan to start playing with it this weekend. Your challenge looks like a great place to start! I know I'm already behind, but I'm sure you wouldn't mind if I upload a few pics. :) Great idea!
