Learning how to create an Instagram theme

You would think after being pretty obsessed with social media for most of my teen/adult life that I would be on top of all things instagram, but you would be slightly wrong. I’ve been on Instagram since it first started, but have YET to hop on the theme bandwagon and here are a few reasons why:

  1. I like to post whatever I want whenever I want to.
  2. How do you CHOOSE a theme?!
  3. It sometimes doesn’t feel natural.

But, I am slightly giving in. I have two instagram accounts (follow me here and here) and I am going to try a theme on my @moddieblog account and leave my personal account for posting whatever I want to post & whenever I want to post it. Themes just seem so difficult and snooty to me sometimes, but I love how they look! So torn. Like maybe if I had twenty different instagram accounts and could post all my photos strategically to each account- but that’s obvs too intense.

Anyhow, I’ve picked a theme for my @moddieblog account and it’s going to be light green/blue accents. The trick to picking a theme (for me at least) was to pick some photos you would post, edit one in a nice way and then copy those edits on to each of the other photos and see how it works. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t, but that’s how I narrowed down the editing/photo style.

Needs a little tweaking, but it’s getting there! Insta theme here I come! I’m still going to post a variety of photos- I don’t think I can limit myself that much. But I am going to try and keep the editing consistent.

Time will tell, y’all.
