You already know how much I love Instagram.
I have always loved photography. It is a love story that started many years ago, when I was very young. I probably inherited this passion from my father, who loved taking pictures and owned a lot of different cameras, which I loved playing with. I have never had much talent for photography but my love is strong, sincere and everlasting.
When Flickr came out, I was really excited and joined the community right away. I loved the fact that I could share my shoots, enjoy those of other incredibly talented photographers, learn from them and interact with people all over the world. Unfortunately, when smartphones came out, Flickr started dying little by little. People moved away from the platform and started sharing their photos on Instagram.
Well, let me confess, Instagram is the reason why I got my first smartphone.
When I first heard about it and saw how enthusiast people were about this new platform, I knew I had to have it. Well, it was love at first sight and it is constantly growing. I opened a personal account, called A casa di Cindy, which I still use daily and love very much. Thanks to Instagram, I discovered new places, met amazing people, even made friends and filled my eyes with endless beauty.
When I started Instantly Italy, I immediately created an account on Instagram as well. I didn’t know what to do with it at the beginning, but then I came across the #100DaysProject, which basically meant sharing a photo a day for 100 Days. Last year I shared 100 Italian words and the project had great success, so this year I decided to do it again, this time with Italian verbs.
Once again, people loved it and I was happy to make something useful for Italian language learners. I loved the enthusiasm and, as usual, I am amazed at the sheer love you guys have for our language. It’s just so great. The project ended two days ago and, exactly like last year, I decided to give something back by gifting participants with a subscription to Be Italian For A Month.
This means it’s time to play and win!
I decided to host a new giveaway. The winner will get the opportunity of being Italian For A Month, by joining my 30-day virtual trip throughout Italy and its culture. If you want to participate, the rules are the following: 1. follow my Instagram profile 2. repost the photo below on your own profile 3. tag it with the #iwanttobeitalianforamonth_2016 hashtag and 4. add a comment under your picture telling me why you want to be Italian for a month.
