Getting to grips with Instagram

I hope that you have had a good week. The weather has been simply awful here at PCG HQ. After having very little rain over the last month we seem to be making up for it all in one go. 

This week I have been getting to grips with the Guilds Instagram account. 
I hate to say it as you know how I dislike it but Instagram would appear to be the place to be at the moment. I am determined to persevere with it and find the most user friendly ways to use it. The lovely Sharon from Gert Lush Designs gave me some great tips the other day and I also picked up a few more during my zoom call with Sam from In Collaboration on Tuesday.
Can you believe that I only discovered how to do stories last weekend!

I have also started to add your posts as stories on the Guild Account, these can be stored in our new highlights folder for a while. To help me with this please can you make sure that you are following us @PCG.UK. I will also be running some Instagram activities in the PCG Workspace on Facebook over the next week or so that you can join in with. 

Do you have any tips about stories, hashtags, highlight folders etc.
