I finally decided to dump my Instagram account – which I haven’t actively used in a rather long while – and I got around to going through my Instagram images today, in prep for deleting the account. I wanted to make sure I had backups of anything I wanted to keep. And I’m glad I […]Read More What My Old Instagram Images Showed Me
