Sometimes, less is more when it comes to crafting the perfect social media caption.
If you’re anything like me, you love Instagram, taking photos, and the community you’ve built up on the app. But you hate the pressure of coming up with perfect captions all the time. Social media captions are important for growing a following & engaging your followers. But they don’t have to always be long novels that take forever to write. Sometimes, short is powerful! Take it from a professional blogger over here: you don’t always have to write long captions.
So, I rounded up 70+ genius short Instagram captions FOR you. They’re all short yet smart, funny or witty and you’ll maybe be convinced to start only posting short captions from now on.
70+ Short Instagram Captions To Use When Your Photo Is Worth 1000 Words
(Or, when you’re in a rush!!)
Recently, I posted an Instagram photo that was just two words and an emoji. I wanted to post something for a timely holiday but my day was so dang busy, I didn’t have the time to think about a long, personal caption.
I had little time so I just threw caution into the wind and posted a short caption. And guess what… people loved it! I love writing (most days!) so I’ll keep posting captions that are long and tell stories, but I was happy to discover that I don’t ALWAYS need to post long captions.
Life is short. Your Instagram captions can be, too!
So, whether you are an influencer or blogger who needs cool caption ideas quickly, or a regular user looking for fresh caption ideas, use my list of short Instagram captions on your next post!
