I never saw any need for an Instagram account. I just knew I'd never want to post pics or videos on one. Even after I was forced to get a smart phone, I still refused to succumb to Instagram, I don't have anything against Instagram, I just didn't think there was any particular reason to have one.
Well, now I have one, and it's because of Grandma Betty. If you're a friend of mine on Facebook, I shared her story from a local TV station, so you might have seen it my post there. If not, here's a link to the interview they did with her:
"Louisville Teen Dedicates Instagram Account to Ailing Grandma"
I enjoyed the pictures and videos that the article included, so I opened an Instagram Account to join in the fun with Grandma Betty. At this time she has 70,000+ followers, and, according to her grandson, it gives her great pleasure to find out each day how many more she has.
I guess it's as good a reason as any to have an Instagram account.
