24 Writing Hashtags And A Mini Book Review

by Anne Wayman

I’ve been doing some experiments with twitter as a marketing tool for the 5 Buck Forum. Part of that experimentation meant searching for appropriate hashtags.  So far I’ve found 23, 24 if you count #writingsquared which Lori Widmer and I created for About Writing Squared which is the container for the forum and other things like webinars, ebooks, etc.

I culled these from Daily Writing Tips. They actually show 40 on that page, but that seemed too many so I picked through them to find the ones that seemed most applicable for what I want to do with them.

Which brings me to just that. How best to use these tags – and the truth is I don’t really know. Oh, I know how to tweet, and I do, but when it comes to actually putting together a twitter marketing campaign I’m way way behind the curve.

Almost as if I’d planned it Jan Zimmerman and Deb Ng‘s massive Social Media Marketing for Dummies All-In-One arrived.

It’s huge because it covers the whole social marketing scene and is, in fact, a compilation of about nine books.

There are some 770 pages and it weighs more than a 5 pound bag of sugar I’m sure. And I’ve just gotten started. Although I wish the publisher, Wiley, had made the screenshots more readable – there’s really no excuse – I’m finding it valuable even though I’m less than 10 percent through.

I’ll do a real review later. Meanwhile, here are my hashtag picks at the moment (each is, of course, preceded by # but somehow that inserts a link to hootsweet, so I deleted them):

Glad you’re fnding “Social Media Marketing All in One for Dummies” useful, Anne. And remember, you can use it as a booster seat for kids after it’s obsolete.

It is a fat book, Deb. Heavy, too.

Oh man, this is useful. I had just been thinking “I need to use more hashtags” and then thought–I have no idea what hashtags to use! Thanks!

Carmen, remember, none of us were born knowing this stuff. It’s all a learning curve.

Great list!

I use ‘hashtags’ such as blog, blogs, blogging, ghost writing, ghostwriting, creative writing, screenwriting, freelance writing, and others. I’ll use these for marketing and promoting my website and or affiliates.
