Announcement


I've been pretty much MIA from the TpT world for months.  But that's because I've been so busy taking care of myself and preparing my house for a new member!  That's right - I'm due in 2 weeks!


I apologize for not being around to bring you new content.  It was a long school year.  Definitely couldn't do anything after work except relax on the couch with my feet up.  I missed blogging and creating but I was mentally exhausted and couldn't do it!

I hope to be back once I'm settled into a new routine this summer with the baby.  But now you finally know why I haven't been around!

A Quick and Easy Way to Save Instagram Likes (Tech Tip Tuesday)



How many times have you been looking at Instagram and you find an idea that you want to try in your classroom?  Then you leave the Instagram app and you forget the idea?


Today's tip will help solve that problem!  This way, you'll be able to keep track of amazing ideas you find on Instagram.

First things first, you need to have an IFTTT account and a Dropbox account.  If you don't already use those services, you want to start now.

Now, click on this recipe in IFTTT.  Scroll down until you see the big blue add button.  Click on add.  It will ask you to customize the settings.  One thing that I changed was the file name.  I keep it as username only.  I delete the part where it says caption.  I don't want large file names with the captions.

Why is this tip useful?

I can go back in to view the Dropbox folder to see all the photos I like on Instagram after the recipe in IFTTT is set up.  That way I can always remember those wonderful ideas I see!  I don't have to try to screenshot the photo and remember where I save it.  I just click the heart on Instagram, which I'd do anyway, and it saves a copy in Dropbox for me to access anywhere!

What other fun things have you done with IFTTT?
