#confession : it took me awhile to catch on to the whole #hashtag thing.
I think hashtags originated on Twitter (?), but I could be wrong. I was very late to the Twitter thing and still do not do much on that platform. Other than sharing (most of) my Instagram posts, there may be a random "thinking out loud" observation, but that's where it ends. I barely have time to keep the blog posts coming, say nothing about scrolling through yet another social media maze of stuff.
But the hashtags? I have grown to love those babies. They're like mini explanations to my various posts...without any excess words (or punctuation). Kind of a time savor at the expense of complete sentences. I can honestly admit that I may be #overindulging in my free use of them, though.
Last year, I wrote a well-received post (appropriately titled, Me and My #hashtags
) and used said hashtags to introduce myself to an audience of new fellow bloggers/followers. Well, there have been several hashtags that have gotten a lot of exposure this past week....
