An Instagram Summer

by Kimberly Hickok

Summers fly by so fast! Thanks to Instagram, I can quickly and easily capture moments as they happen. Even better, Instagram has added a feature that makes it easy to share photos across platforms.

From your desktop browser, Instagram Web Embeds lets you grab the code associated with your Instagram video or picture so you can add them to a website, blog post or even Facebook.

It’s only been about a month since the official start of summer. Here are some highlights of what’s been happening in my world. Take a peek . . .

In addition to the new embed feature, I have also found it easy to add Instagram photos by pasting the photo’s URL into posts. I’d love to see what you’re up to this summer. Paste your Instagram photo links below or share your user info below so I can ‘follow’ your summer journey!
