A few of my blog friends started using Whrrl, an application that let's people share their stories through photos. When I first saw it, it seemed like TMI. I really don't need to see my friends' trips to the grocery store. So when I saw the Whrrl people at the pre-BlogHer09 Social Luxe party, I didn't pay them much mind.
But then it dawned on me that it might be a convenient way to share or enhance my travel stories, even though I don't have an iPhone. An iPhone makes it easy to share stories in real time. But if you know me, you know that I avoid mobile web surfing. When I'm out and about, I try to focus on where I'm going and what I'm doing, not to mention who I'm with. I spend so much time glued to my screen at home that it's good for me to step away from the virtual every now and then.
At any rate, I have not yet succumbed to the iPhone, but I clicked to Whrrl and I liked it. Take a look.
What do you think? Interesting addition to the social media toolkit?
