I got an Instagram account

Here it is: jonyanmaloney.

After resisting it as for years as a self-indulgent medium, I signed up. The tipping point was listening to Gary Vaynerchuck’s latest audiobook, Crushing It. This book and this book were also formative.

In creating an Instagram account, I’m making you a promise:

My Instagram account will not be:

  • Attention-seeking.
  • Designed to maximize ‘likes.’
  • Primarily about me.

My Instagram account will be:

  • Original
  • Inspiring
  • Primarily about you.

My Instagram account might:

  • Not work. If a post fails to resonate, not generating many ‘likes’, I will keep it up as a relic to ideas that failed.

I hope you’ll join me in thinking harder about the technology we choose to adopt, and a lot harder about how we use it.
