The first thing you’ll obviously need is an instagram account.

For the widget I use a little handy tool called SnapWidget which is free tool that helps you get this. So go to their website and click on ‘ Get Your Free Widget’, then simply fill out the form like below:

Snap widget allows you to customise how you’d like to display your insta photos. I opted for a simple 1×3 layout with a white background to fit in with my blog  design. Once you’ve  set up everything how you’d like – click ‘ Get Widget’ and a box will pop up

Copy and paste the code, next you’ll need to decide where to put it.

In wordpress this will usually go into a widget (Appearance > Widgets).

In blogger this will usually go into a Gadget (Layout > Add Gadget)

Once you have it in your widget/gadget – save it and refresh your blog page to see it in action. Don’t worry if you didn’t get it right first time, play around with the settings and generate the code again until you get it right.

I hope you found this tutorial useful.
