Day 244: Frumpstagram

Hey, it's the start of yet another month here on Everyday Disney, and that means that it's a great time to start a new tradition, or at least start something new for this month!

I'm no stranger to social networking. I mean, have you seen all those things listed to the left? But by far my favorite is Instagram (ok...Pinterest really too. They're kinda tied). I spend a lot of time on Instagram and always love finding new pictures to take. I used it for my July '13 Disney Photo Challenge, and got plenty of great shots that I now adore to death! I use Instagram to promote my blog sometimes, and other times I just use it for my personal use. As I said over a month ago, I am debating starting just a Disney Instagram account as well for Everyday Disney, but for the moment let's just do this.

I normally don't do monthly photo challenges. In fact, the only ones I've done officially have been on Facebook, and the way I do those is I sit down and in one sitting, find all my pictures and type up responses for each of them in a Word Document. Then all I have to do is go through, upload, copy and paste and finish them on the day they need to be up. No extreme thinking involved. I've done two full photo challenges that way (My Disney Photo Challenge and the Star Wars Photo Challenge). It's a fun thing to do, but only if you remember to do it.

On Instagram, there's obviously always all kinds of monthly challenges, and I too have tried for the past two months to complete them. Sadly I only get a couple of days into them. But I found one today that sounds like it's right up my alley. It's from Instagram user Disney_Frump, and sounded like something I could implement right here on Everyday Disney! So I just want to give a quick thank you to her for this awesome challenge!

As you can see, it's an Instagram daily photo challenge based on Disney prompts such as "Welcome Home," "Ears," and "Adventure." Fun, huh? I think it shall be quite the adventure to do it each and everyday both on my Instagram and here on Everyday Disney. Of course, I had to think a little bit about how I'm going to do this because I already have the daily history, and that will continue too. So this is just going to be a one month thing as to not take up a ton of space at the end of every single blog post. I'm pretty sure these things are long enough as it is. Still, I encourage you to do this with me, even if you're starting a couple days late! 

So here's today's #Frumpstagram picture from my Instagram, based on the prompt "Welcome Home."

And here's today's Disney History: 1993: Disney announces that AT&T has renewed its sponsorship of Spaceship Earth at EPCOT Center in the Walt Disney World Resort. Spaceship Earth was originally sponsored by the Bell System from 1982 to 1984. When Bell was broken up into smaller companies in 1984, its parent company, AT&T became its own independent company and began sponsoring Spaceship Earth. It will continue to do so until 2004, when Siemens picks up sponsorship. 

Have a magical day!
