A Theme on Instagram is Not A Requirement

When Instagram first surfaced it was this  super cool, and different outlet. A space that allowed users to share fun photos, and life events in a way that Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter didn't. Instagram has always been about the visuals, the photo is the first thing you see, the caption the second. Simple, right? Wrong.

As time progresses, and generations grow more and more tech savvy, it gets harder and harder to keep up with everything. I'm not entirely sure when Instagram themes started, but they did, and they've been around for a while now. Although instagram themes are fun and extremely satisfying to the eye, they are hard to accomplish in a way that makes your profile visiters "ooo" and "ahhh".

I don't post often, and when I do, I am one of the people that tries to keep a theme. It is nowhere near a theme like that of Zoë (Zoella), or any other public figure, but there are repeating colors, and shades. I do not strictly follow a seasonal theme, but I try to keep my colors relevant to the season because I prefer it that way.

There are many people who don't have a theme at all, it makes for a slightly chaotic feed, but at the same time...who cares?! It's your account at the end of the day you can do with it whatever you want.

Slap on a filter, or don't...

This kind of stress and pressure does not have to exist. Instagram is an outlet for you to post pictures you want to share with friends and family, not something else you need to stress or worry about.
