Instagramers is 2 years now!I remember its headline was  What is Instagram? 

We were less than 1 million users around the world and Instagram didn´t have its own corporate website.  At this stage, nobody knewvery well what was Instagram. Some called it Instragam, Instargramm, Hispatragram. So confusing!

I was myself wondering if supporting or not the “evangelization” of this strange named photo-sharing app as these guys from San Francisco just removed my first @instagramers account (losing my first 5.000 followers) alluding to the name was very similar to Instagram´s one.

However, I was very addict to the app itself and I was not thinking of getting married with none of them so I decided to go on and focus on my mission to help people. I made my best to give an hand to thousands of “newbies” who were lost on a virtual world with no information around IG.

My friend @antonioBaez and my beloved designer @elhombretecla helped me setting a blog.  I started writing for hours. I worked like a fool during free days, nights, week ends, holidays …  Writing News, Tutorials and Interviews of cool people I was discovering.

One day, a girl from Barcelona called Marta Alonso @martaar suggested me to open a first Instagramers Fans group in her city. I accepted and we called it simply @IgersBCN. It seems yesterday…

 

It was only two years ago but it feels as years! We are now more than 300 groups all over the world, supporting Instagram´s religion and passion, organizing events, photowalks, instameets, exhibitions and even a congress.

I missed tons of my friend´s party and probably lots of fun too but something was supporting me. Passion for Instagram maybe?

And definitely the help and motivation of hundreds of new Instagram´s real good friends. It´s impossible to list all of them but I know they know they are in my thoughts and heart.

To all our M_, Members, ManIgers, Followers, Partners and of course to our Instagram Team. I would like to send a big THANK YOU for your words, support and make this come true! Hope to enjoy this wonderful human experience for many more years!
