My sister, who is eleven years younger than me (=more up on what’s up), keeps telling me “it’s all about social media!” which is why I’ve got Sancta Nomina on Facebook and Twitter, and now — tah dah! — on Instagram! She’s been telling me for a while that I should, and the blogiversary seemed a good time to bite the bullet.
I’m not totally sure what a name blogger puts on Instagram? I thought maybe any names I spot while out and about? But I started with the pics from my trip to St. Anne’s that I’d posted here, and added a couple more from the trip that I hadn’t posted to the blog.
AND — I was determined to go to the gift shop while at the Shrine, specifically because I wanted to get a little something for you all, so I picked up several different holy cards of St. Anne, and I just now posted a picture of all of them and I put descriptions of them in the caption. (And even though I tried reeeeeaaally hard to have a nice-ish picture [I’m not a photographer], somehow my final cropping took out almost all of one of the cards, and none of the crumbs above, and I didn’t realize until after I’d posted it with the looong caption, and I felt like throwing my hands up and taking a nap at the thought of re-doing it all. So — it is what it is.)
I would love to send a holy card to whomever wants one! But since I have so many different ones, I thought the best way to do it would be to have you all see the descriptions of them that I posted today, so you know what all there is, and then starting tomorrow I’ll post a picture of just one, front and back, each day, and if you like that one, email me with your mailing address. (You’ll be able to see better the card that got cut off when I post the picture of just it.) I only have four or five of each, so unfortunately it’ll be first come, first served, and only one per person (one total, not one of each). Does that sound okay? (And please be patient with Instagramming me … I’ve had a personal account for a while and it continues to confound me, and totally irritate me that I can only post pics from my phone. Whyyyy not directly from the computer?? My sister rolls her eyes every time I ask these questions.)
And lest you think I’ve changed from a name blogger to a first-blogiversary-travel-photography blogger, fear not: I do actually have a name question for you all, but I’ll post it separately a little later. 🙂
