In My Bag: A New Social Network for People with Bags

Published on September 16th, 2010.

When I started studying IT Communication and Computer Security in high school, I was forced into using a bag, every day. I was never much of a bag person, but in recent years they’ve grown on me. For the past 3-4 years or so, I’ve used side bags rather than the traditional backpack. But just a few days ago I decided to get myself a new backpack and throw away my old side bag for a couple of reasons.

I decided to do so mostly because I can’t use a side bag when I’m taking the bike to school. But also because when you carry expensive things, like a MacBook Pro, having a side bag that goes back and forth and bumps into your thigh every two seconds just forces me to hold it still.

But what I really wanted to tell you about is this new Japanese community called In My Bag. It’s a very simple community that lets people share their bags, be it for business, private, sports or whatever. You can look at other people’s bags and get ideas of things you could add to your own bag, and enlighten others of things they should add.

The site is available both in Japanese and English so I definitely think it’s worth a try, even though it’s mostly a one-time fun thing, unless you have a whole lot of bags. They also have a Twitter account in case you want to keep track of people’s bags more easily^^

I think it’s a cool idea, it’s definitely better than just another Twitter-copy!

    That’s a pretty neat idea since girls are always blogging about what’s in their bag on their blogs normally.

    You also have a super adorable backpack :D

      And thanks, I’m very fond of it myself^^

      Typ det viktigaste efter datorn!^^ Nackdelen med värktabletter är att dom tar slut så fort, alltid folk som behöver…

    I don’t like the bag, looks too kiddy. I mean, dunno, just looks horrid. Sorry.

      Haha. It’s part of a colorful skate fashion trend here in Sweden, but if you don’t like it, you don’t like it. I don’t take it personally :P
