Just a thought...

Why do we feel the need to apologize for things that we post on OUR social media accounts? I mean - some people should be sorry for the things they post on Facebook and Twitter, but that's a whole 'nother story.

Anyway, last night I hashtagged #sorryforthecharlieoverload on my Instagram after posting the second picture of Charlie for the day. Then I thought... why do I feel the need to apologize for what I post on MY Instagram? If people don't like it - they don't have to follow me. I post a lot of pictures on Instagram because those are memories. I can't tell you how many times I've gone back and looked at my pictures and been like "aww that was so fun!" or "geez that was so long ago"... things like that. I've always been a picture person, but why is it that we feel the need to apologize for "overgramming"? I know that I'm not the only one that has apologized for "overgramming" - regardless of whether it's a dog, a baby, a vacation, a house being built - those are all SUCH exciting things that are important to someone.

So I guess what I'm saying is - don't apologize for what is important to YOU. If someone doesn't like the fact that I post a zillion pictures of my dog... then I'm sorry they're not a dog person.

That's just my random thought for the day!

What are your thoughts on "overgramming"? I'm interested in hearing other's opinions and thoughts!



  1. I agree! I love to use my instagram to capture memories. I sort of use it as a memory book - and I can't tell you how many times I've "lost" a follower when I post a Bible verse. Love me some pictures and Bible verses. I personally LOVE seeing pics of Charlie so please, keep them comin'!!! xoxo

  2. Girl. We all do this. But... you're right. Our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram is ours for our own reasons. And if we want to snap too many pictures of our dogs, and we all know that Barbie loves Charlie, then do it! I seem to always like the same picture on both FB and Instagram. Don't skimp on the C pictures because some people are dumb! xoxox
