How to Upload to Instagram Using Your Laptop

I just recently learned about this trick and I’m just excited to share it with you especially to moms like me who only have one phone and that phone is constantly being used by the child for watching Youtube educational videos and interactive games (don’t bash me! Lol!)

It was just so freeing when I first learned about this, and how coincidental it is that it’s Independence Day today. Coz before, I used to step out of my office, go to my son, “beg” him to let me use “his” phone just so I can update my Instagram account! (I really need to buy a new phone or have the busted one repaired — waahhhh!). Anyway, it’s just so freeing to learn about this.

I’m a quiet person. I mind my own business. And I more often than not don’t care about what my neighbors do. But with social media being open to the world, it’s like something is pulling me to eavesdrop or take a peek at other people’s lives and most of the time, the things I see just make me feel depressed about my own. But since it’s part of my job (I manage a lot of social media accounts for my clients), I really can’t quit it all together and that’s okay. What I mean is to quit my own personal social media which I’ve done for the past week. And here’s what happened: Continue reading
