You may have noticed that each month, here on Curbly, we have a new theme that drives the core structure of our posts. With each new month, comes a new topic to cover, and this month is all about offices and workspaces. We'll be sharing plenty of office DIYs and workspace makeovers for the month of February, but we want you to be able to join in with Curbly's monthly themes as well. So, for February, we've started an Instagram hashtag, #CurblyWhereIWork, and we're challenging you to show us your office or workspace. Snap a picture of your desk, your entire office, that spot on that couch that you always work from on your laptop, etc and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #CurblyWhereIWork. Bonus points for tagging @Curbly in the photo. At the end of the month, we'll feature some of our favorite photos from the hashtag in a new Curbly post (with credit of course). Need some inspiration to get started? Here are some photos, from Curbly authors, that are already in the hashtag pool.
