I have just discovered the world and it is truly vomit inducing, arty instagram shots of boden clad kids frolicking with a designer dog (arty boho chic stuff in background) "Just relaxing with the family", the "A little something I rustled up for dinner tonight' (cue arty instagram shot of rustic papaya, beetroot & pine nut salad with French goats cheese), and "Oh my new £20,000 shoes have arrived, look how rich I am and how pretty they are" (Shot against distressed oak floorboards with perfectly painted toe nails peeping out".................

I have one acquaintance who does this- i enjoy it as it is so daft and if it makes her happy, it is no skin off my nose.

I really like the arty shots of her dc homework.

Also do you think this is a social media equivalent of a Xmas card round robin?

SilverMoo Sat 09-Feb-13 18:17:47

I just feel it's a bit "Look at me and how happy/beautiful/rich/clever/stylish/boho/trendy/arty/thin/young/hip did I mention rich & beautiful? (insert word of choice here) I am....

YABU to not post a link

It wasn't like that before fucking Facebook took over.

Before, the popular page used to be filled with really good scenic photography. The week fb took over it all changed.

But I do agree, it's all shitty posing these days.

lockets The blogs, oh THE BLOGS angry

SilverMoo Sat 09-Feb-13 18:20:34

Would I be allowed to post links to blogs in mind?? I don't want to personalise my annoyance.

Although I always assume there is something very bad going on in their lives that turns them into crazed Pollyannas.

Blogs are always all "look at me, aren't I wonderful?" aren't they? confused I don't ever read them or have any desire to read them, so my advice to you OP, is to cease and desist with blogs. They are wanky.

SilverMoo Sat 09-Feb-13 18:23:38

Ha! Yes I will desist, it also makes me a bit envy to be honest, even though I know full well I am very very happy and there is a fair chance even though they appear to be they may well not be confused

They are almost certainly not all they appear. It would seem ranting about blogs is widespread here

Branleuse Sat 09-Feb-13 18:25:56

i am not interested in your polaroided/instagrammed picture of your spaghetti bolognese

HestonsFatCock Sat 09-Feb-13 18:27:11

Course they aren't; they are a writhing mass of insecurities.

I must admit, I am waiting for a friendly viper to give me a virtual spanking for being so sweeping and direct me to a few good blogs with attidue.

DuchessFanny Sat 09-Feb-13 18:29:46

Oh dear, then I have missed the point of instagram ... Seeing as nothing in my background is perfect ( my dog might be pooing in the woodland walk for example !) my kids wear h&m and I haven't painted my nails since before Christmas !
Love the different 'effects' though - makes my shite photography passable !

SilverMoo Sat 09-Feb-13 18:38:33

BeerTricksPotter - Yah, it does doens't it? Just something I rustled in in my chic little imagination, I would post a photo of my trendy boho mind thinking it up in sepia if I could...

SilverMoo Sat 09-Feb-13 18:39:55

DuchessFanny - Ahhh! You have fallen into the trap that I initially did, thinking it was just some gadget that made your pics look different..

When I go out and have fund with DC I rarely remember to take pics, let alone get the perfect shot with DC's looking in the right direction and then have time to edit it and do a little write up, I wonder how much time is dedicated to this?! It must make day to day life one big photo & bragging opportunity..
