There seems to be a plug in for everything! I tried Askinet an JetPack and unfortunately, both seemed to have only a paid version.
So I decided to have some fun and try the Instagram Feed by 10web. It was easy to upload and install. Once I figured out it created a page for me, I added it to my menu and voila! My Instagram feed was posted.
For a education related blog, I don’t think I would actually post my Instagram feed…but I would post my Twitter feed or a link to the #edtech hashtag. So I went looking for a Twitter Plugin. I found Custom Twitter Feeds By Smash Balloon. Just like the Instagram feed, it was easy to install. The plug in added a menu item in the dashboard that allowed me to customize what I wanted to show up. It didn’t create a page – and I think that was because there are so many options on how to display the feed. I stuck with a single feed showing all tweets with the hashtag #edtech. (I added the page with the shortcode in it).
This is fun!
