Hashtag Bundles for Writers on Social Media

Hashtag Bundles for Writers on Social Media

P1Z6GA5UTN

Social media is a must for functioning members of society. I mean, how else are you going to keep track of what everyone had for lunch today? But for aspiring artists of all flavors, social media is an essential tool for free publicity and a following. Free! A big factor in that, especially on Twitter and Instagram, are the hashtags you employ. With that in mind I’ve put together a few pre-made hashtag bundles in order to save you time and piece of mind.


If you’re like me, you constantly find yourself typing the same hashtags. You have your stalwarts like #amwriting, #writer, #novelist, or #poet. You know you’re going to throw those on the end of just about everything you post. I personally have a group of 8-10 that I use in almost ever post. Depending on the content of those posts, I’ll tailor it slightly to include some more focused hashtags if I think a particular audience will appreciate what I’m sharing.

The tricky thing about all of this is the fact that Twitter and Instagram do not let you save hashtags. Ones you frequently use pop up first in the auto-complete window but you still have to type the beginning handful of letters. It is frustrating as hell. But then I thought to myself, Connor, you’re not a caveman! We have technologies. Like copy/paste!

So in the notes app on my phone, I typed up a number of different go-to bundles of hashtags for generalized topics I frequently post about. That way, I can copy the bundle before I open Twitter or Instagram (generally more applicable for Instagram – Twitter has that pesky character limit that harshes my hashtag mellow) and paste them in at the end of my post. No more need to type each one individually. I can then tailor them to add or exclude certain hashtags depending on the content.

Below are a couple of bundles I use on a regular basis. Feel free to copy/paste these into your phone’s note app and use them for your own accounts. Note that I’ve tailor these more for Instagram but you can replace instagram with any other social media platform you frequently use.

Obviously these are just the basic building blocks. There are a million different flavors of writers out there who write specific things requiring specific hashtags. The same goes for all non-writing artists. Feel free to add on to these, create your own (and then share!), or offer suggestions for me to add in the comments below. I’m more than happy to update these. For more hashtag inspiration check out this site.

I am a HUGE proponent of artists helping other artists and this is my little contribution for the day so please pass these along to all your creative-type friends and encourage them to make their own. It’ll save tons of time that you can use to keep creating!

Also, be sure to check out my Twitter (@connoragriffin) and Instagram (@connorgriffinwrites) to see these hashtags in action.

Until next time, #keepcreating.

Cheers,

P.S. Hey Farva what’s the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?
