Do you feel inspired by looking at other people’s photographs on Instagram?
Are you looking for others to help you find places to visit and things to do in the Hudson Valley?
Have you ever wished you could go where others have gone and do what they’ve done?
I have too!
I love Instagram for many reasons. If you’re not currently on this fantastic social media platform, then you are missing out on all the fun.
With over 2 million people populating the Lower and Mid-Hudson Valley Region, it is safe to say that many people are out documenting their daily lives in the HV in droves. Did you know that as of September 2017, Instagram recorded approximately 800 million active users worldwide???? That’s a whole lot of people sharing a whole lot of stuff.
During the time this blog post was written, my Instagram account @Hudsonvalleyexpd has a little over 600 followers. And, although, those numbers are tiny in comparison to, let’s say… @Selenagomez and her over 100+ million followers, I am having fun with it and showing off so many things within the Hudson Valley. I am having a great time exposing you to great finds and showing you that you, too, can create lasting memories without having to travel far.
“It doesn’t matter the number of people following you, as long as you’re having fun!”
