About a year ago I created a personal meme account. I had spent the previous few months making memes for large snack brands and I tend to be an all or nothing person. I invested a lot of time learning about memes and now I couldn’t stop making them.
So I made a personal account in the niche of memes about Minnesota. The goal was to run it anonymously. Then once it had amassed a somewhat significant following on its own merit (ex. 10k), I’d reveal to people I know that it was me.
A year went by while I put in the bare minimum effort on the account, acquiring about 100 followers. The trouble with starting something new is that you don’t want to waste great content on an audience of 2 people.
Then a coworker discovered the account.
So I finally began to put effort into the account in the last two months, making about 40 memes (and crossing a follower threshold where I’m not embarrassed to mention the account). In total, in the last 60 days, I’ve probably made at least 100 memes (for this account and others).
A few of the memes I’ve made recently are below.
Making sure to work my son into a meme:
