    Question Since the start of my third lockdown

    Hello! I’m trying to translate Instagram post of my friend to English. Can you please take a look if it’s correct? I know that the main idea is understandable, but just want to check articles and sentence structure in general.

    “Since the start of my third lockdown I was missing exhibitions and galleries so much, that I even started to analyze their Instagram accounts.


    Would you be interested in my recommendations? Of course, based on the best cases.”

    Thank you!

    Please note my corrections above. I'm not sure what the blue underlined part means.

    It means, that it will be explained based on the most famous and efficient examples.

    Thank you for the corrections!

    Do you mean that you are going to recommend only those Instagram accounts that you consider to be the best?

    I had another question about post #1 but I forgot to ask it. What did you mean by "analyze their Instagram accounts"? Do you just mean that you started following various museums and art galleries on Instagram, and looking at their posts? If so, that's not analysing them.
