Go WILD on Instagram

For the past several years I've had a private Instagram account. This was the one social media platform I used to share personal stuff with friends and family. However, it seems Instagram, like everything else, has been Zuckerberg'ed into a largely commercial platform, so I was considering deleting my account. But then a friend suggested I turn it into a commercial platform for WILD ABOUT HARRY and share Houdini-related whatnot. I think that's a great idea.

So I've switched houdiniwild to Public and invite anyone and everyone to follow me. Instagram doesn't allow hyperlinks so I don't know how effective it will be in sharing my most recent posts, but we'll see how it develops. There is some fun Houdini stuff there already. Along with a lot of photos of my cat.

So if Instagram is your preferred social media platform, it's now another way to stay Wild About Harry!


  1. John, there is a work-around for the hyperlinks. You'll need to get a '' account. This account allows you to list many hyperlinks with your own headings. What you'll do then is put the account in your bio on Instagram. You can have a link to for your newsletter, link to the latest Houdini article, link to specific articles, link to whatever your choose. It's not perfect, but it works.

    1. OH, and when you post someting on instagram that you want tthem to check out further, just say, "click the so and so link in my bio'.... I hope that helps.

  2. You're also able to put a link in your Story. When you have a new article, just add to your Story (which lasts for 24hrs) and you can include a direct link to your post. Other than that, a link in your bio to something like linktree, Unfold, or you could make a new landing page here like /latest that would go to the latest article.
