Instagram Tip: Before posting, I hit “Select All, Copy” on my description + hashtags.
Why? Sometimes I write too many hashtags by accident or my description is too long or I unknowingly use a banned IG hashtag – and rather than displaying an error message or warning me, Instagram just posts the photo with an empty description, and I was having to rewrite it from memory. So a few months ago, I started doing “Select All, Copy” right before hitting “Post” on Instagram. So when the ‘blank description error' happens, I can simply “Paste” and erase some of the hashtags and try posting again. A little trick that may save you a lot of time if you can get into the habit.
