Over 300 Essential Hashtags For Writers

When I started this blog in 2016, I dove headfirst into research on blogging and hashtags and Pinterest and Twitter and email lists. Before I read up on hashtags, I always rolled my eyes at social media posts with more than two or three hashtags. Why were these people trying so hard? Why weren’t they satisfied with the “likes” they were getting? Social media was a hobby, and they were trying WAY TOO HARD… (I can be SO unfairly judgemental sometimes).

Two years later, social media has grown from a hobby into a huge part of my job as a blogger and freelance writer. I use hashtags pretty much religiously on my social media posts. They’re about exposure. Every writer knows the heartbreaking moment when we gather the courage to hit the publish button, only to hear crickets. Hashtags are magical little words that help get your work into the hands of your future fans. Click To Tweet Hashtags have connected with me other writers in the community. They helped me find clients on social media, which led to my first freelance gig, and they helped grow my website. Now that social media is part of my job, I’ve come to accept that my old friends may be rolling their eyes at the hashtags that fill my social media. I keep a list of hashtags for writers handy so that I can copy and paste onto a post quickly. Before I get into the list, I wanted to make run through a few reminders.

5 Quick Tips When Using Hashtags For Writers:

  1. Only use one or two hashtags for writers on Twitter. Otherwise, you’ll look spammy.
  2. Only use a few hashtags on Pinterest and keep it specific.
  3. Don’t use a hashtag unless you know what it means, and it is relevant. Otherwise, you’re not going to reach your target audience, which makes typing out a hashtag a waste of time. A quick hashtag search to doublecheck what a hashtag means will only take a few seconds.
  4. You can use up to 30 hashtags on Instagram, but DO NOT use the same hashtags for every post. Your Instagram account will likely be “shadow banned,” which means that your posts will not show up in the hashtag search.
  5. It’s fine to use hashtags for writers on Facebook, and I use them often, but only because I schedule my social media posts all at once. It saves time that way. I haven’t really seen much gain from using hashtags on Facebook, but I suppose it can’t hurt, and there doesn’t seem to be a limit.
  6. Mix hashtags with a larger audience with the smaller hashtags. If you only use big hashtags like “bloggers unite,” then you risk your post getting lost in the thousands of posts that are being published the same time as yours. Use a mix to cast a wider net. Plus, the smaller hashtags usually bring in the more authentic connections.

Fantastic post – wow!!!!! You truly did a great job. I couldn’t resist copying the following tweet that I tagged you in a few times today, LOL!

When it comes to Twitter, I’ve learned from my friend/ trusted expert @Carol_Stephen that less is more. One # is best. Two #, tops! (Other social media options are different.) Here’s Carol’s awesome post: http://yoursocialmediaworks.com/how-to-improve-a-tweet-five-best-ways
