6 Instagrammers You Should Be Following

Image credit: 

With the big news that Instagram is finally available, as of today, for the Android platform, it's time to look at some accounts you want to be following once you get on, or if you're one of the 15 million+ people using the social photo sharing service already. While the big accounts continue to be @zooeydeschanel, @taylorswift, @justinbieber, @ryanseacrest and @npr, these lesser-known IG-ers are my favorites.

1. @kellyoxford

A blogger since the '90s, Kelly is a mother of three from Calgary who became famous for her amazingly funny Tweets and is now penning scripts for Hollywood. As if that weren't enough, she's got a great eye and is always posting fantastic photos on IG.

2. @yoyoha

Josh Hara is a cartoonist who recently landed an Associate Creative Director position at Resource Interactive (a digital marketing firm in Columbus, OH) based on his Tweets, which garnered local and national attention. On IG, he likes to document his kids and has a wonderful eye for it, as you see below.

3. @smethanie

Another mom with serious nerd-creds, Smethanie is a budding IG-er who loves to, er, shoot about her gamer addiction. So follow her for that, and also: she loves Five Guys and that's just reason enough right there.

4. @bexfinch

Bex is an amazing photographer living in the Bay area. Once you start following her, you'll be checking your phone 10 times a day just to see if she's uploaded something new.

5. @lunchyprices

And speaking of gorgeous photos, though she isn't a "pro" like Bex, @lunchyprices is really doing amazing things with the camera. A mom raising kids in the Colorado area, she loves to shoot in the great outdoors, as well as at home. Follower her now or else!

6. @twaggies

I'd be remiss if I didn't plug my own account, Twaggies... because everyone needs a break from all the photos once in a while, right? We take funny tweets that would otherwise disappear into the bleak, black void of the ether and illustrate them for posterity. They fit nicely on IG, too!
