Happy December!! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve seen me using a few new hashtags lately. I regularly use hashtags depending on what I’m wearing or what I’m doing, but I also like to use other bloggers hashtags. I think it’s a great way to connect with others and show support for their blogs. My new favorite hashtags to use are:
Lexi from LexBelivin started using this hashtag on her own Instagram photos then decided to create the letsbelivin hashtag challenge. As an incentive to get people to use her hashtag, Lexi is going to pick some of her favorite photos each week and feature these bloggers and their images on her blog. So aside from supporting another blogger, you are getting free advertisement for yourself!
I’m super excited about finding Lexi’s blog and supporting her because she is so sweet and genuine. Last week I was the only person who used her hashtag on Instagram and I got a full page feature (read here). I instantly felt connected to her reading this post, like we had been friends forever. I also feel like I’ve really been putting myself out there and trying to genuinely connect with other bloggers and.I constantly read about all these fantastic friendships that bloggers make with other people and I haven’t made any yet so I was feeling down on myself. Maybe this is my hard work finally paying off and this is the beginning of lots of great new friendships? I don’t know.. but I am so excited to have connected with Lexi because we seem to have a lot in common and I feel like I’ve made my first real blogging friend!
Helene from HeleneInBetween and Taylor from TheDailyTay both have regular hashtags they use but they created this one for the holiday season! Helene and Taylor are two of my favorite bloggers. I love following checking their blogs every morning to see what they’ve posted.. so of course I want to promote their blogs! They are giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky person at the end of the holiday season. Read more about their Instagram hashtag challenge on Helene’s blog here or on Taylor’s blog here. I’m not expecting to win, but it is a fun, easy way to promote other people and a great way to connect with others!
I happened to come across this hashtag while scrolling through my Bloglovin feed this morning and it looks so exciting! Macy from To Travel and Beyond is also holding an Instagram challenge for December. Each day there is a different theme of picture to post and I’m so excited for the holidays and to see what everyone posts! You can read more about Macy’s #herestoyoudecember challenge.
What are some other hashtags you use or plan to use this holiday season?
