Do I need a theme?

I’ve moved into my flat! still don’t feel like an adult though, not sure I ever really will, but does anyone? While I’m getting settled I’m sticking to a post once a week on a Sunday.

But that’s not what I want to talk about today…before my house move I was posting quite regularly on instagram and hopefully I’ll get back into that cause I quite enjoy attempting to take and edit some photos, but something was bugging me.

A theme….

I started this blog for me, I never actually intended to do the whole social media thing for self-promotion, Instagram just happens to be something I had anyway and as I’ve said enjoy using (most of the time). However I still found myself setting up a twitter account for my blog which is a great way to find new blogs to follow, so thanks if you follow me! It’s a way to put myself out there a little and its boosted my confidence not only with my little blog but also on a larger scale. My twitter followers have now grown to a point where they equal those I have on instagram which if I’m honest is a little frustrating as I think I put more effort into that and I’ve had it for much longer.

So is the problem that I don’t have a theme? I always said I would never have one. However I have made more of an effort lately when it comes to editing photos using similar settings and filters…but why can’t I keep it consistent? Is it because its not full of flatlays or that I don’t stick to just architecture or selfies?

I like to take photos of various things; whether it is my lunch or a favourite new coffee spot, my favourite beaches or some stunning buildings it’s really hard to get these things to tie in together. Long story short I’m considering trying to find my theme…maybe its just a long process and I’ll get there eventually but for now I’m busy scrolling through my favourite insta accounts for inspiration.

I really don’t want to take the joy out of instagram cause I like it for what it is and I only have one account which is mostly personal. Yeah I put my blog on there sometimes but it isn’t really for promotion it’s usually just photos that I like or what I’ve been up to lately. What are your thoughts on this one? Should I spend time ‘finding my theme’ or just go with the flow?

    Ahh no post what you want to post! I don’t have a theme either and although I don’t have thousands of followers I still like every single photo I post instead of just doing it to try and “fit a theme” 🙂 xo
