Once you post the photo, others can "love it" and they can leave a comment. Sometimes the comments are the most fun. You can also choose to link it up to Twitter, Facebook & Flickr. Not gonna lie. I'm a huge fan.
Instagrammers tend to share photos of one or more of the following: coffee, food, cocktails, kombucha, cats, dogs, babies/children, nature, other people or photos of themselves either via a mirror or with the self-portrait technique of holding your arm out. Often there is a photo of a person with coffee or a cocktail, or a with a dog or cat, but not usually with food. The food almost always gets its own glory.
Here are a few Instagrams I've sent over the past few months as @LASmoothieGirl.

As a followup to The Great Fundraising Act, YOU raised $26,000 US for Susan to help her fight cancer! Thank you all! Only some of the behind the scenes helpers were: Danica, Eden, Morgan, Holly, Momma B and of course the amazing brains (and beauty) behind the whole endeavor, Janetha.
Here is some news coverage of the event:

Q: Do you Instagram? If you want others to check out your posts, you can leave your @name. What sorts of photos do you/would you post? What other types of photos have you seen posted?
