#capturingthesedays - An Instagram Community

10:40

If you didn't know already, I am obsessed with Instagram. I absolutely love being able to see snippets of people's lives, share moments from mine, and find inspiration on even the darkest of days. It's amazing that through using Instagram I have made friends from across the country, and further, who I have never met but whose lives I know so much about. And of course, who know so much about mine. It's the community aspect of Instagram that I love the most, and I've found that using hashtags is the best way to find likeminded people.

Back in the summer I was toying with the idea of changing my blog name, which is something I am still keen to do, and the name I came up with was Capturing These Days. In the end, I decided it wasn't quite right, but I wasn't happy to just give it up entirely, and that was when the hashtag #capturingthesedays was born. I've used it on all of my Instagram posts since then, and a few of my friends have started using it too, as well as a few people I don't really know at all.

So today I think it is finally time to put it out there properly, and ask you all to use the hashtag #capturingthesedays on your own posts. There are no rules, no set themes, just anything you think would work. Perhaps a walk in the woods, a trip to the park or a Sunday afternoon where you're all still in your pyjamas - the little moments you want to capture forever. I really hope you will join me to create a little community, and I so look forward to seeing lots of gorgeous photos popping up on the hashtag page.

I plan to do a monthly round up of photos from the hashtag, and share them both on here and on Instagram itself. So today I thought I'd share some photos that have already used #capturingthesedays:

Don't forget to check out the hashtag on Instagram, and add it to your own posts - I can't wait to see all your beautiful photos!
