21 Thoughts We All Have When browsing Instagram



I used to be obsessed with Instagram, now not so much! I kind of feel its getting a bit dull, repetitive and boring. I practically feel like 80% of the accounts that I follow just post the same old stuff as each other. This isn't a rant, by the way though I know I am coming across that way. So I am going to get off my soap box and give you a run down of 21 thoughts that I think and I know you do too, when browsing Instagram!

21 Thoughts We All Have When browsing Instagram

#1 " OMG Yes, New comment! My followers are so kind and caring" * Clicks on new comment*  'F4F' " EURGH!!!!" * Starts banging head against any hard surface I can find* " Don't people understand that 'f4f' thing was so 2012. Move on with your life!

#2 OMG that feed is so pretty! I could total recreate a pink and white, pastel theme. * Sticks white paper up to create a classic background to cover hideous * insert colour of choice here* wallpaper " Why won't it work?" " Why do my photos look so pants compared to everyone else  

#3 Gets photo ready to post, * Starts having a staring contest with clock, to make sure that I post at exactly the time I posted yesterday * * Clicks post* FAILED TO UPLOAD! " WHAT NO?!" * Starts smashing phone on the ground*

#4 #bbloggers #lbloggers #beauty #makeup #life #hashtag #nolife #Ihaverunoutofhastags " How many hashtags is an unexpectable amount again?!"

#5 " YES, my latest photo is seriously good quality" * posts and sees it on timeline* " Why Instagram?! Why do you have to completely ruin all the photos that I ever post "

#6 * Sees a stunning holiday photo of some foreign tropical island* * Looks outside at the it completely chucking it down with rain and realises you are snuggling a blanket and a hot water bottle and it's actually the middle of August* " Why the hell do I live in England" SERIOUSLY?!

#7 * Scrolls down feed, to see mouth watering snaps of delicious gourmet meals* * Looks down at own plate to see a handful of kids smiley faces and chicken nuggets* " I could totally do that gourmet meal thing! Yeah Totally! "

#8 * Turns Instagram on a Sunday morning to see all the fun party photos from last night* " Why am I so boring and antisocial?! * Then realises you promptly went to bed at 10 last night *

#9 " I mustn't like any of their photos! I mustn't like any of their photos! They must not know that I was stalking their feed! * Likes photos" AHHHHHH! * BURN PHONE, SET IT ON FIRE, FLUSH IT DOWN THE TOILET, NO NO NO! *

#10 * Posts photo* Keeps clicking refresh until someone likes it! " Few it gets at least one like*

#11 * New product got released this week* " Omg there is that new book by that Youtuber" * scrolls* " Oh look there it is again" " And again" " Oh look and again"

#12 " New competition! I must totally enter that, wait it's going to mess my feed up. When does it run out? Next Monday, okay I will post it an hour or two before it closes" * Next day* DAMMIT! I FORGOT, I'm such a bad human being! "

#13 " I wonder what filter I should use today? I want to try out a new filter. No, forget it, I will just use Valencia just like on every other photo. Why are any of the others even there anyway?! Does anyone actually use ' HEFE'  

#14 " I love everyone's captions, they are so sassy, I am definitely going to try and do sassy captions" * Tries sassy caption*" Nope my sass attempt failed miserably" 

#15 Photography goals...photography goals.. photography goals

#16 " That Mac lipstick is so pretty!" " Omg that new naked palette is stunning" " I am so going to pick up that new blush!" " Oh yeah, I can't, because I have no money, never mind, back to living of 25p noodles!"

#17 * Starts to play virtual kerplunk with the brightness settings for my new photo*

#18 * Clicks video* " Why is there no bloody sound?!" * Pulls headphones out and clicks the video. Sound blares out into a quiet area, everyone turns around and gives you the death stare* Frantically tires to put headphones back in.*

#19 " No I don't want a goal helper, No I don't want to be involved in your game and No I don't need a 'minion' Please leave me alone!

#20 " OMG, I have a DM, someone actually wants to talk to me" *Will you subscribe to my YouTube?* " NEVER MIND!"

#21 * Goes to photos you are tagged in... None!* " Forever Alone!"


Thanks for reading!

  3. Hahahah this is so funny! I think I definitely try to 'defy' conventions as I just post whatever I feel like - lately there's been lots of pictures that are a bit misplaced but people seem to genuinely like so WTVIDC~ lol I totally get the competition one, I've never reposted anything before cause I don't want to 'ruin' my feed ;)

  7. Omg I do all of these things!! I am following so many pink/white themes and I kind of want to delete them, but quite a lot are blog accounts so I'd feel rude! I don't get many 'f4f' comments on my posts (luckily) but lots of people comment emoji's, which I can't see because my phone is such an old model! Xx

    1. I follow so many people that don't even post anymore that I need to unfollow, it's that or start a new account! :/

  8. This was so funny! The f4f and tagged 'get 1000000 followers' kill me. I think something good has happened and then my hopes are dashed. I totally relate to #10!

  10. Your mini rant at the beginning was straight out of my mind! I get bored of looking at similar pictures on my feed all the time. I feel like a lot of bloggers curate their images so strictly that there isn't anything strikingly different to see.
    Since you feel the same way, I'm curious to check out your feed and will do so right after I post this comment!

    Loved reading this post! I think you captured a bit of everyone without it running pages!
