why not blog about instagram?

Sooooo,
since blogging is so passé, 
I wanna get into it again!!!
(What's not cool is almost always cool in my book.)
But, 
there is just one thing stopping me,
and that is 
#Instacrack.
Try as I have over the last year or so,
has 
stolen
this blog's thunder #bigtime.
But in the last month I have had 
3 touching moments
when complete strangers
have been beyond kind about the blog 
and
how much it has affected them.
So, 
here we go again,
yet another try to resurrect it...

This time maybe it will stick,
so naturally I will start with blogging about the 
#blogkiller 
itself:

Here are my top 20
pictures,
in 2 posts,
