So Cal Baton

Okay y’all, I am so excited to share this project with you!  I have been working on it for a while now and have been getting impatient to hit publish…so here goes!

I recently came across two photo relay batons on Instagram and thought…something like this would be perfect for Southern California because Southern California is AWESOME and I think the world should see everything that we have to offer…and so the So Cal Baton was born!  My goal here at Girl on the Move is to inspire you to try new things, go new places, take adventures and meet new people, and the So Cal Baton is a great way to do all of those things!


A Baton is a collaborative Instagram community.  So in this case the collaborators all live in Southern California and the virtual Baton (aka the Instagram password) is handed off to one local Instagrammer per day to share the reasons they love the area through photographs.  When the day is up, the Baton is passed to the next person!


Really simply…

  1. You sign up to participate
  2. You’re assigned a day
  3. On your assigned day you’ll be given the Instagram account information and you share pics of life in Southern California!

In a few more details…

  1. Email me at socalbaton {at) gmail.com with the following information to sign up…

-Your name

-Where you live

-Your blog URL (if you have one)

  1. After you have been verified, you will receive an email letting you know your assigned day
  2. The week before you day you’ll receive an email with login information, detailed information on what to post and answering some frequently asked questions
