I am very excited to announce that I am launching The Baltimore Baton on Instagram!
You’ve probably heard of or participated in The Blog Baton. Mason was inspired by the Raleigh Durham baton account and started The Blog Baton which I’ve participated in and LOVED.
If you haven’t heard of the concept of “passing the baton” it’s when an Instagram account and different people log on each day to post photos. The idea behind The Baltimore Baton is to show people who do not live here what they can do when visiting besides the typical tourist spots. It is also a way for locals to find new things to do or to “meet people” with similar interests. Check out @RDUBaton, @ilovetexasphoto and @NYCbaton on Instagram to see the concept in action!
How can you be a part of this? Sign up for a day! Most of the accounts above have locals “hold the baton” each day of the week. Since TBB is brand new I would like to have one person posting from the account each Saturday/or Sunday from Memorial Day to Labor Day. If you live or work in the Baltimore area feel free to email with which weekend you’d like to hold the baton and we can get you on the schedule!
Check out the rules and guidelines HERE
And make sure to follow @TheBaltimoreBaton on Instagram!
Thanks for sharing Megan! Just as a heads up, we also plan on doing this for Northeast Bloggers soon, too! So if you want to participate, but don't live in the Baltimore area, keep an eye out for more info on that coming soon!
