What's up with the #Twitter #Hashtag ?

Hashtag, hashtag, and hashtag again!

 #Twitter is all about the #hashtag. I #hashtag until my fingers fall off. #Hashtags enable others to find your posts and discover what you do, sell, or buy. Do the #hashtag each and every day to let others know who you are as a person or company. I'm an #author so #hashtags are in every post I present to my #followers. As I grow, so will my #hashtags and #posts. 

I will add things like: #indieauthor, #author,  #writingprompt, #ian1, #iartg, and other #hashtags are in my arsenal of tweets. The more the merrier so never forget to #hashtag throughout each and every tweet/post.



#indieauthor: This #hashtag let's others know you are a self-published #author ready to take on #Twitter.

#author: You're an author that #amwriting or #amediting. Keep up the good work and let your #followers know what you are doing at least 5-30 X's a day. I really do!


#writingprompt: Is a visual way of letting people know by posting pictures what #prompt they can add to your post. This post in unique and having your #followers #prompt your post is fun for you to get to know what they are saying and also fun for them to add their comments.

#ian1 & #iartg: Are pages on #Twitter you want to see your posts. Of course, you want everyone you come across to see your posts, so #hashtag away!

Hashtags reveal to your followers what you are attempting to covey to them. I have discovered that there is no way to overdo #hashtags so keep up the #hashtags. Always remember to post HD pictures of your books along with your post. This tells your #followers what they can expect out of you in the future. Post Only Crystal Clear Pictures. You will gain more #followers because of your attention to detail which will add up to a huge #following. I have noticed other #authors posting blurry or unclear pictures. That is a huge #NONO

Do the 80/20 Rule:

This rule is 80% other posts and 20% books (your books). When you post like this, you are more likely to keep your #followers and not lose them because you are not over posting about yourself and your books. You want to keep your #followers following and that is what makes happy #followers. Be ethical while #tweeting and use common sense. #Following want to see good stuff and not crap!


#WriterHashtags: #FridayReads, #FollowFriday, #WordCount, #WriterWednesday, #WritingTip, #BookGiveaway, #AskAgent. There are so many other #hashtags, but these are the commonly used #hashtags for #Twitter
