Instagram for Mongo

Day 35. 84,678 words.

I was bored on Friday evening (Mrs. Hatboy was engaged in creation of a new item for Bar Äijä’s, that wasn’t boring but it warrants a whole separate blog post when it’s done, and in the meantime I had nothing much to do), so I added Instagram on my phone.

I know nothing about Instagram. I don’t know if you can share posts, except on other social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter. I am stchucky on Instagram anyway.


I decided to make it a cosplay account for the time being, but I’m pretty much out of cosplay pics now. Obviously I have a few more from Ropecons and Worldcon, but I don’t know if it’s enough to support an Instagram.


I feel a lot of Instagrammers (and I say this as a two-day noob) let themselves down in the caption department. So maybe that can be my thing.

I’ll certainly be giving my book covers and the incredible Gabriel Gajdoš a fair bit of coverage.

That’s about it for the weekend. Went skiing with Wump for half an hour or so this afternoon, which was fun. Perfect weather.

Oh, and Wump has a new hobby which might need a separate blog post too. Thinking about it.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

    Other people can share your instagram post on their instagram. It requires a third party app that I have never looked into. However as you have noticed it can be shared to your FB and Twitter and spread there. Instagram works off of hash tags primarily.

      Yeah, I as unable to share a direct link but I have personally seen a ton of Instagram pics even though I only just signed up for it on the weekend. I guess they were Facebook shares or screencaps or various stuff like that.
