Ladies, hear me out…for once I think the fellas are on to something.
Now I’m not saying we need to be posting up at a lake and taking a god awful fish pic, that’s disgusting. What I’m suggesting we do is, maybe take it easy on the filters or make our captions something actually worth reading. As opposed to the usual “Love this Bitch” or “My Ride or Die.”
Nothing crazy, just tone it down enough where Instagram doesn’t feel like a hate fuck anymore.
Like seriously, every time I open the app I feel like you’re all silently telling me I’m ugly.
I’m only ugly because I’m not extendo stretching my legs and assaulting my face on FaceTune.
I too was a victim of having “the perfect feed.” I went through phases of having a theme, I tried:
A Black & White vs. Color Pattern:
The Fake Disposable Camera Theme:
I even TRIED to have a set grid color, this one was supposed to be “blue”:
But now, I have taken the liberty to start causally posting, and let me tell you…it is LIBERATING.
It feels amazing to finally free myself from getting some fake / forced picture that will just look good on my feed, and substitute it with real pictures that actually capture these shitfaced 3 am nights I’m having in my 20’s. I would much rather look back on my Instagram when I’m an old fart and see these posts rather than some angled edited picture with a diluted smile.
I also need to mention that since I’ve started posting like this I’ve doubled my follower count. Which is most definitely worth noting.
So, are you with me? Are you ready to change the dynamic of Instagram for the better? Or do you still have a subscription for a grid planner app that you can’t seem to let go of?
