When I signed up for Instagram I wasn’t concerned with engagement, likes, comments, hashtags etc. I just got one because everyone was getting one (hey, it was 2011 and I was still a teenager severe peer pressure syndrome…)
Fast forward 5 years (5?! WHAT?!) and everything has changed.
Now I post at the suggested prime engagement time, I plan out my feed and I tag my pictures with a buttload of hashtags.
Before I get into the nitty-gritty of this post, I would just like to say that this algorithm (and the ones before it) SUCKS.
Back to the post. Here are 10 of my favorite hashtags to use:
#FlashesOfDelightCreated by The Glitter Guide, this hashtag is for anything that makes you smile and if you use it you might be featured!
#LovelySquaresI can’t find the specifics, but I use it for all my Instagram posts-especially everything lovely. Here is the Insta account.
#SoLovelySoFreeThis is for the ladies! This one is by The Free Woman, but I also love She Is Light-I can’t find a hashtag for that account.
#photosinbetweenWell Helene in Between has a lot of awesome hashtags, but this one is probably my favorite.
#abeautifulmess + all their hashtagsHere is their hashtag guide because you’ll need it to navigate all of them.
#wanderfuladventuresStarted by Amelie from A Wanderer’s Adventures– this hashtag can be used to document daily wanderings in life.
#petitejoysThis one is all about celebrating the little things! Co-founded by Allie Seidel and Rouge and Whimsy?
#bandofunBan.do has like a gazillion different hashtags (see them here), but this one is my fave.
#barkpackGuess what this is for!
