I’m just back from watching around 12,000 people cross the finish line of the 200km Ride London bicycle race…

And now I feel inadequate when it comes to how I spend my Sunday mornings!

Ah well, at least I always get your freebie tips, tools and training to you and this week I’ve taken a long, hard look at some stuff that has changed recently…

Starting with Instagram.

You may or may not be aware that Instagram changed its algorithm last month – if you missed it, here’s what happened:

Essentially, it means that Instagram now puts your ‘best’ posts first rather than your newest…just like Facebook (no surprise as it now owns Instagram)…

Which has caused havoc for a lot of Instagrammers who rely on engagement with a constant stream of, well, new stuff.

But never fear – here are four suggestions to help you beat it:
