Elaine just gets it. You send a request and she does it - she's quick and she's meticulous, too.

My previous post talked about the new Stories feature on Instagram and I’m back today to talk about Instagram again! Instagram have started to roll out Business Profiles, giving users access to new business features and Instagram Insights. This is obviously a great tool for small business owners but I think this new feature will be really useful to bloggers and freelancers also. Instagram Business Profiles Business profiles are free and will be available to all users who want to be recognized as a business. You will need to connect your account to a Facebook page as it pulls a
How to get started with Instagram Stories and use the new features
Instagram launched its newest feature this week: Instagram Stories. Heavily “inspired” by Snapchat, Instagram now allows you to upload a stream of photos and videos to your Story. As you share multiple photos or videos, they appear together in a slideshow format (known as your Story). Content in your story will disappear after 24 hours and won’t appear in the main news feed or on your grid (unless you choose to send it there, details below!). In this post I’ll be giving a run down of how to use the new Instagram Story feature. Getting started with Instagram Stories Stories live at the top of your news feed, where
A new YouTube collab channel and community for content creators
In Real Life is a new all-inclusive YouTube community for creators from all backgrounds, categories and niches. It was created by Becka Shepherd, who has always been a supportive member of the blogging and YouTube community. Becka was inspired by Mum’s Eye View, a collaboration channel featuring videos with Hannah Maggs, Ruth Crilly, Pixiwoo, Carly Rowena and other well-known creators. Becka wanted something that welcomed and showcased creators of all levels and so she created In Real Life. There are a number of contributors already involved who will be uploading content giving their tips and sharing their experiences. The channel

How to limit and disable post revisions on WordPress to save space
A very handy WordPress feature, especially for bloggers, is post revisions. It allows you to look back over earlier versions of your blog post so you can undo changes, compare two versions and revert to an earlier version. By default, WordPress stores an infinite number of revisions. So every time you edit your blog post and save as a draft or update a published post, WordPress stores a copy on your database. Combine this with auto-saves and the number of posts you have on your blog and you can see how this space can get pretty big. You could have
