#Instagram #Cats and #CrazyCatLady - A match made in Heaven

I try to keep up with social media—Facebook and Google+ for friends, Twitter for sharing short messages, and Triberr for sharing blog posts. But now Instagram, a photo sharing app, has become my favorite. You know what they say. A picture is worth a thousand words.

My granddaughter loaded the app on my iPhone when I broke my kneecap, and was stuck in the house. Once I started fooling with it, I was hooked. It helps that I'm totally in love with my iPhone. My old cell phone drove me crazy. I never took a picture with it, just used it for calls. But the iPhone is so easy to use, that I'm always snapping pictures.

And Instagram is so easy too! With a touch of a finger, you can edit your photo with a bunch of different filters, give it a caption and then share it with others. There are no complicated settings, and you can sync with Facebook, and Twitter.  If you're a person who doesn't like to write, you can express yourself with a photo. It's like having an art gallery at your fingertips and I love scrolling through all the photos—especially the cat pics.

But there's much more than cute animal photos—travel, food, celebrities, books…
