Get your social media on... Instagram gallery feed

One of my blogs is on style, which means it's quite heavy on photos. Most weeks I'll photograph at least a couple of #ootd (outfit of the day), and a few photos of cool items I've found on various shopping expeditions. Not all of the photos result in a blog entry, but I'd still like to share them on the website without having to spend time and energy re-posting.

This isn't a service Instagram offers but thanks to its well-published and extensive application programming interface (API), a number of other services have sprung up that allow further functionality to use your Instagram feed. Yesterday I wrote a how-to on using Statigram's Facebook app to add the feed to your Facebook page. Today, I'll talk you through how to use Statigram's iframe-based widget to add a gallery feed to your blog or website.

If you run a Wordpress site (I don't) they have an easy extension. For everyone else...
