How To Create Your Own Meme

The past year the internet has been flooded with different internet meme’s and it seems we just can’t get enough of it. If you are like most jokesters you feel like you may have something that could go viral but don’t know how to do it, check these tips on how to make the next internet sensation:

Make it personal or topical: Personal meme’s are the most fun when shared among friends, especially when it’s an inside joke. Making light hearted jabs at a friend spilling a soda down their shirt is always funny or you can branch out and make a more general meme. Some of the most popular internet meme’s are based around popular current and topical news and information. That means it could be based around a movie that has been released, a political issue or something as simple as weather trend.

Image is everything: You want to use an image that will spark conversation that is recognizable to your audience. Using personal photos is a great idea but be careful if you are using an image of someone other than yourself because of legality issues that can spawn from it. Meme generators offer their photos that you can use like ‘Condescending Wonka’, ‘Bad Luck Bryan’ or the popular site called Some ecards where they have a large selection to create the vintage throw back.

Don’t be offensive: Meme’s are meant to be funny and sarcastic, never hurtful. Tread lightly when creating your meme and be sure that you are not offending or hurting someone. A good meme tip is to stay away from serious topics like religion and politics. Remember that once you have created a meme it will forever be on the internet for everyone and anyone to see. 

Meme generator: You can always create your own meme with your own image and your own words by using computer programs like Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Word or Paint. There are also websites that you can use to create your own meme or use their stock photo. All you have to do is upload the image you want to use or select one they have, type the text and ta dah! You have created your own meme. Keep in mind that these meme generator sites will most likely keep your meme on their website for everyone to see.

So start getting funny and start creating, remember to keep it clean and comical and you never know if you will be the next internet meme to go viral. Have fun and happy memeing!
