I love when inspiration strikes while partaking in the most menial of activities. In this case, it was scrolling through Insta. As I was looking through the photos I have saved to my account, I had a Jimmy Neutron “brain blast” moment, when I figured out what I wanted today’s post to be about.
In order for my career to continue to grow, I kinda, sorta, absolutely need social media. And I’m going to stay on social media to keep up with friends, family, pop icons (and meme culture). But the social media burnout is very real, as evidenced in a past post. I find that if I’m going to continue to have an existence on social media (such a technological dystopian thought), I need to follow accounts that, as Marie Kondo would say, spark joy.
In this post, I’ve gathered Instagram accounts I find pure enjoyment in following. When I need that social media fix but can’t find the willpower to take a break, I choose to rest my eyes upon something beautiful and meaningful, which I believe this collection of accounts to be. This piece is actually partially inspired by a post titled “How to have a positive experience on Instagram” by Sigh Swoon (who has been featured several times on the blog). There’s a strong chance that you – YES YOU, HEY – reading this are on social media in some capacity, and if so, you too deserve to have a positive experience.
These accounts span across a variety of niches – some are artists, others are a compilation of works by creatives, and some are a collection of beautiful words. (I also did my very best to credit everyone correctly, I’m hoping I succeeded.)
