WHAT-IS: After failing constantly on dedicated « Top/Best 9 » apps, I had decided instead to manually look thru each+every image upload on my Instagram (for the year of 2021), and eyeballed the stats, screen-grabbed them, and formatted them into 9-grids … and THESE ARE THE RESULTS, cheers.
I took a short break during the New Year, and am now continuing featuring this list (on weekends). In this blog-feature today for #TOYSREVILTop9for2021, I will be counting down images featuring 1200+ to 1600+ LIKES on Instagram!
