100 hashtags for creative bloggers

craftcartwright Blogging, Crafts 37 Comments

I’ve being hearing a lot recently on twitter about how engagement is really low on Instagram and lots of people are struggling to keep or gain new followers. At the moment I can’t agree. I have been working really hard to grow my following and I think it’s down to me upping my game with my hashtag use. You can too, with 100 hashtags for creative bloggers.

I’ve been setting myself Instagram goals in my monthly stats roundups and this month I set myself the task of getting to 1000 followers. Not a big ask, some of you may think but until recently I had really struggled to gain any new followers.

Why make hashtags for creative bloggers?

Since I started noting my stats my followers have grown from
781 followers in March
803 followers in April
977 followers in May
I’ve already smashed my target for June by hitting 1041 when I checked this morning. That’s a gain of 260 new followers in three months.

You may not be all about the numbers game but for me, with wanting to make more income from my blogging you do have to try and increase your followers.

So that’s when I started to focus on my hashtag use. I have three main areas that I cover on my blog and in my Instagram feed. Crafts, Lifestyle and Parenting. So I thought it would be helpful to break it down into three posts with a stronger focus on each of these three areas.

In my 100 hashtags for creative bloggers I have covered, general crafts, art and design, sewing, fabric design and paper crafts. These are my main interests in the creative world and should hopefully offer you some new hashtag choices. Obviously the more niche your creative pursuits are there will be a whole host of hashtags just for them but the general crafts ones should be helpful to all creative bloggers.

  1. I have a list of parenting insta-communities stored on my phone but sometimes I just make stuff up – there is a hashtag for EVERYTHING! Adding random ones in every now and again expands your audience a little right? And if in doubt just go for ig_[insert subject here] or [subject]ofinstagram.

    This is a great list – I've pinned it over on the #coolmumclub craft board! Thanks for linking

  2. These are great hashtags! I'm not into the crafting niche (though I may have the odd post about crafts) but your list is still inspiring. Good for you to keep your followers growing!

  4. I normally just pick & choose hashtags that I think are relevant to my post, but recently I started using a few community ones and I did definitely see an increase. I always like to read which tags others find good, but I can never remember them at the time.

  5. fantastic resource. you inspire me to start up Instagram again! I gave up with it only a few months after I started up blogging. I just couldn't be bothered and wanted to focus on twitter & Facebook, but I've been thinking about starting it up again… #blogtipslinky

  6. You mention these hashtags are great for instagram. Just wondering if they are transferable and effective on other social media platforms? #BloggerClubUK

  7. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
