Instagram Attacked Advice from a Victim

This post affects over 1 billion Instagram users and it’s one of the saddest posts I had to write because I’m a victim. I used my Instagram account as a major part of my business and income stream.

Here’s what happen and a list of ways you can protect yourself.  Continue reading

It immediately went on my bucket list and yesterday I was finally able to cross it off.  Continue reading
