TIPS|How to Caption Your Instagram Pictures

Bonjour, it’s ‘pay day’ week ๐Ÿ™‚ just putting it out there for all those who work and all those who depend on a certain individual for cash, Do Not Carry Last!

Thank you so much for stopping by this new week + Your unending support and comments.

This isn’t a Style Post + I might not be able to deliver any Style Post this week or Next due to Family issues that need my attention, Nahh its nothing serious but I won’t just be able to Plan a shoot for My blog. What’s that saying “Family comes first?”. Don’t worry I won’t leave you dry cause best believe you’re my family too. My Very Extended Online Family, keeps growing every day.

Have you ever been in a situation were you are done taken & editing your pictures, okay now it’s time to post but you just sitting there Clueless? Then yhh this post is for YOU!

I’ll be sharing with you 5 Ways to help you Caption your Pictures:

First of all there are two types of Instagram users when it comes to Captioning;

ย ย The Minimal & the Storytellers

The Storytellers always feel the need to write up a longggg ass caption; tbh thats fine nothing wrong with that but that’s so not me cause I get lazy typing + I’m not one to read long captions So yhhh I fall under

The Minimalย we keep it simple & straight to the point.

You should know both types have an advantage & Disadvantage but hey Which one are you?

Sense of Humor: Who doesn’t love a sense of humor? This is my all time fave. I could do it all the time but I won’t. Not every-time serious or motivational its okay to ease the tension a little. Afterall you can pass across any caption/message with a sense of humor.

Ask a Question: You could simply ask a question relating to the picture.
