There is a designer, teacher, entrepreneur, artist, photographer, writer, trendforecaster, astrologer, traveler in me. While I am always on the move I cherish the just being of people, places and products. I have an insatiable curiosity (not surprisingly having sun, moon and mercury in Gemini in the 12th house) for learning beyond borders, with a passion for things made and done with heart and soul; authentic, unique, handmade, minimal, wabi sabi.
The ‘like’ culture of social media was for long not on my curiosity list. On Pinterest most of my activities are ‘secret’, on Twitter I scan the news, I tried Tumblr, but rarely look and Facebook, is a social pool I was never attracted to dive into.
Is there a potential Instagrammer in me? Fifty days ago, I discovered the magic and fun of dropping personal pictures and words into a black hole; the social universe. IG has got a spell on me. Here I am, lateblooming, wondering and bewildered. Seeing people with almost no feeds having thousands of followers. Or uninteresting posts getting a thousand likes. Approached by strangers telling me they can offer me free followers and asking myself if I should be buying followers to get a better public image? Why do I get only a few likes on the feeds I like best and more on my least favorite feeds? Feeling myself a looser when I have only 1000 likes on 100 posts, in 50 days, with 50 followers. What would other people think about me?
Here I am, now also on Instagram @birgittadevos, with Iphone pictures, just because it is possible. A daily journey. On my way to new adventures, don’t hesitate to like and follow me on Instagram….
