I've noticed lately that social media is slightly overtaking blogs in terms of what I look for for inspiration or for checking in with friends. As many of you know I am addicted to both pin board sites and photography apps and whilst I use the former for collating inspirational and beautiful internet finds I use the latter for quick updates of my day. I've never been one for huge essay long posts and find I am much more of a visual person when it comes to blog entries.
This is where Dayre kind of combines the two. With a limited number of characters (500) but enough to create short concise posts the app lets you upload a picture, video or even post a sticker (I am a sucker for an Emoji!) and create a short blog post.
Myself and 29 other bloggers have been given the chance (and challenge) to try the app as an official alpha-seeder and post every day for the next six weeks. I actually blog daily on this 'ere blog of mine so I think this should be a good one for me! What is hard for me though is selecting just one image! I tend to take lots of photos and am then stuck between 3 or 4 fairly similar pictures which I feel I love equally. Especially hard when it's photos of your loved ones! So I think this will be a great learning curve on being decisive and selective with the imagery used to illustrated my posts.
Dayre is currently a small community but I'm really excited to see it grow and discover lots of new bloggers through it. If you decide to join I'd love to follow along with your journey, do find me over there there and I'll be sure to follow along with your posts too!
