OH INSTAGRAM

sometimes i have a love hate relationship with instagram. while i find taking photos, editing, documenting, discovering new artists all very inspiring…i also think it can be unproductive, repetitive, self indulgent, inauthentic, and sometimes boring. two very strong stories to each side.

each year i try to clean it up so i feel more positive than negative. i go through and unfollow anything that makes me feel not so great and i start following new content. i do love the feature on intagram if you follow someone new it recommends people with a similar aesthetic, that’s super helpful. i fell down a very inspiring hole the other night and followed 20ish new people and it brightened up my feed and made instagram interesting for me again. i really do think it’s a wonderful platform, i just feel like you have to tweak it sometimes!

one of the accounts that i found and enjoy is @apieceapart. i like that it’s a clothing line, but also shows her constant inspiration. which makes the account less about the sales and more about the bigger picture and process.

so what do you say, are you going to go look for some new inspiration today? find someone you like to follow and check out who they follow and start there! xx bri

    Ah, the eternal love/hate with Instagram. It can be SO inspiring but also very overwhelming, and to be honest, a time suck. Working on my relationship with it too. 😉

    I completely agree with you! I often find myself bored while scrolling through my feed and I also find annoying and monotonic that we all like the same thing, you know? When an account I like starts getting likes from different people I follow I like it very much at first, I think “how nice and funny we were all drawn to this!” but after a while it begins to annoy me. It is very repetitive. At that point I normally find myself searching for new inspiration, too.
    I also find that unfollowing people and “cleaning up” my feed helps me a lot, even though I always get to that point when I feel bored and I think I’m waisting my time 🙁
    It is really a love/hate thing with this IG thing
