Kudos to Chris Pratt, For Coming Out

Opinion Kudos to Chris Pratt, For Coming Out – Image: https://twitter.com/prattprattpratt/ USA – -(Ammoland.com)- How often have we seen Hollywood celebrities praised as courageous for “coming out” and admitting they're gay? Isn't it far more courageous for people to profess their Christian faith? Hollywood is not a tolerant city. Dominated by activist leftists, it is a culture hostile to dissenting views. We see it in its work product. Most movies and television shows are laced with politi...

Cote de Texas: Trends for 2019

First of all, a bit business! I am discovering that I like to write short stories on Instagram when the topic is not long enough to put on the blog.  Also, Instagram gives me the ability to quickly write about more topical events.   Such as this weekend when Lee Radziwill passed away, I could write a tribute about her within an hour of hearing the news, without it being a longer story on the blog [Author: [email protected] (Joni Webb)]

How to Upload the Best Looking Instagram Images

Instagram is probably our favorite social network here at How-To Geek. We always want our photos to look their best, so I did the research. Here’s how to make your images look as good as possible on Instagram. RELATED: Why Your Facebook Photos Look So Bad (And What You Can Do About It) Instagram, like Facebook, resizes and compresses your images to match their guidelines. While the algorithms seem less aggressive than with Facebook (which makes sense because Instagram is primarily a photo shari...

Trend Alert: Vintage French Shops You Can Browse from Your Laptop

We’d look for any excuse to book a flight to France, map out a route, and spend a few days scouring flea markets, brocantes, and vides greniers (the French version of a garage sale) for vintage finds. The next best thing? A few small vintage shops, with wares hand-sourced from antiques shops and stalls throughout France, and easily browsable from your couch. Unlike bigger online platforms like eBay and Etsy, these are more curated shops run (and sourced) by individuals and couples, with small se...

A Designer and an Antiquary’s Remodeled Guesthouses in Reims (Soon Available to Rent)

I have never been to Reims, the city in the Champagne region of France where all of the French kings were once crowned. But, through the magic of Instagram, I’ve spent the last few weeks poring over one of the most classically, quietly lovely projects I’ve seen: a pair of guesthouses and the accompanying family house of the family renovating them, steps from the city’s famous cathedral. It was Instagram that first led me to discover Les Penates Reims: While researching Nomibis—a flea market base...

The Manure-Spreaders of Media Sensationalism

Opinion The Manure-Spreaders of Media Sensationalism USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Here we go again. If you think the manure-spreaders of sensationalism who masquerade as ethical practitioners of journalism learned anything from the MAGA-bashing Covington Catholic High School hoax, I have three words for you: Ha, ha, ha. Last Tuesday morning's, uncorroborated claims by actor Jussie Smollett that he was the victim of a “brutal” hate crime by Trump supporters in Chicago went viral across social med...

For a Better Instagram Experience, Follow Hashtags Instead of People

If you’ve been using Instagram for a while, you probably already know what a great place it is to find inspiration. But to see the best content, ditch following users and start looking at hashtags instead. Following hashtags on Instagram isn’t a new feature, but it’s one you shouldn’t overlook—its hard to overstate their value. In my opinion, this is one of the best parts of the entire network. Why? Because it allows me two conveniences: first, it bypasses all the fluff most users post; and sec...

All Social Networks Should Let Us Take Back Control From the Algorithm

Twitter recently introduced a button that lets users sort Tweets in a way that makes sense (read: chronologically), then quickly switch back to the default “popularity” sorting. The thing is, why can’t all networks do this? Victoria Song, writing for Gizmodo, made the case today that Instagram should “steal Twitter’s sparkle button” and I couldn’t agree more. While Instagram may not buck parent company Facebook’s love of algorithmic feeds, it should do exactly that (and Facebook should do it to...

Nomibis: A Vintage Shop in Reims, France, Shoppable on Instagram

A flea market in France you can shop on Instagram? Julie recently spotted Nomibis, run by Fabienne Nominé and companion Pascal Bisson, who first opened a shop in the city of Reims, France (once the site of the coronations of the French kings), but ten years later discovered that they could sell things more artfully and more quickly on Instagram. Now they use their own Reims home to style their found “antiques and eccentricities,” then post them on their Instagram feed (@nomibis) and on their web...

How to Gain Instagram Followers by Sharing your Nametag

Instagram is the place to be these days and, as someone once said, sharing is caring. It could be your wedding or something much more mundane, but without followers, it’s pointless. Here’s how to make it easy for people to follow you. The people who work at Instagram know that the key to a great Instagram profile is to make sure it’s easy for people to follow you. All the best photos in the world won’t do you any good if nobody knows that they exist, so sharing your Instagram profile is vital. ...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well!
