Success kid. Grumpy cat. Fundraising Bernie. My plans vs 2020. Overly attached girlfriend. What is cake. Kermit the frog.
What might have been just a string of words put together by someone having a mental breakdown prior to the internet has instead become a list of hilarious memes that we as a human species can smile about. Memes are a beautiful thing, aren't they?
However, at the end of the day, you might be going, "Seen it. Seen it. Seen it," and start to fall into a mild depression over the fact that you feel like you've depleted the internet of all its memes. When faced with such a tragedy, there's only one thing you can do. Make the memes yourself. But how do you make a meme. Well, follows these simply instructions, as it's a lot easier than you think:
Step 1: Put in the time
Alright if you're going to make your own memes, then you're going to have to know your stuff. Take a look at what memes have gone viral already. We know you already know them. Maybe there's a certain trend right now you want to keep your eye on that you have a devilishly amusing caption to add to. Be strategic and strike when the time is right.
Also when learning how to make a meme, it's a good idea to choose a subject that interests you. If you despise knitting but are looking up funny knitting memes, you're probably in the wrong spot. When in doubt, a cute cat usually can never fail.
Step 2: Make it happen
You can go HERE to make your own memes, which is the step that we have now reached. Find the photo that you'd like to use, whether you've taken it yourself or are repurposing another photo. Luckily, the Memes app makes that really easy — there's a ton of photos already provided for you to choose from.
Then, make the magic happen. Keep your content short and sweet, and most importantly, keep it highly amusing. We've all got short attention spans, so you've got to cater to the average goldfish. When you make your meme, make sure that your visuals match up with your content, and everything blends together in the perfect meme recipe that people can't help but share with their friends. You'll be viral before you know it.
Step 3: Find your toolbox, or...
TypicalIy, you will need a bit of tech savviness if you want to make your own memes. If you are tech savvy, hooray! If you are not, don't even sweat it; you can still make a meme! Because you don't have time to take a month long course on how to use Photoshop, you can just go HERE and make your meme easily. Boom!
Step 4: Share it!
Okay, so you've made your meme. All systems are go. You're laughing to yourself in your room and no one else is around. That's a pretty good sign that you've got something really funny on your hands, here. So the world needs to see it.
And that's why the world has Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, your friend's phone numbers, and every other way that people look at memes. Don't be shy to share all that hard work that you've done. People's eyes need to be blessed with your excellent creation.
You can make the process even easier by downloading the memes app HERE. You have no excuse now that you know how to make a meme. Take this as your official invitation to become the meme master you always were meant to be.
