Lets hear it for the Hashtags


Last week, I decided I was going to (though it's actually Wednesday, time of writing, because I've a full day tomorrow) take part in (time allowing) #ThankfulThursdays - Promoting Generosity in Social Media

The link above will take you to Sarah Fader's blog, where you can read more about #ThankfulThursdays, but in short, the day is about promoting the work of others, honoring friends, expressing gratitude. 

This week I want to say .... 'Thank You for the Hashtags'.  
For #ThankfulThursdays (obviously) but also for #Mondayblogs, #ArchiveDay, #BeWoW, #LinkYourLife, #BluSkyFriday and #SundayBlogShare.

I really enjoy these blog share memes - I've met some great people, read too many 'good reads' to mention, and received lots of encouragement with regard to my own writing....What's not to like :o)  

I could tell you more about the hashtags myself, but I think as this post is about promoting others, I'll shut up for a bit, and let my friends fill you in :) 

I'll kick off with #MondayBlogs, which, To quote my friend Paula  "Is the Mother of all hashtag memes where blog sharing is concerned."  
Lets hear it for the hashtags. Twitter blog share memes
Monday Blogs, was created by Rachel Thompson - I love it, I think you'll love it.... I'll let Rachel tell you more about it herself.... Here

Next up is #ArchiveDay  (Saturday) - I love Archive day, An opportunity to brush up and recycle all those dusty old posts.. and  those that are not so dusty :o)

#ArchiveDay is the brainchild of Vicky Charles - again, I'll hand over for more details.... Here

#BeWoW (Be Wonderful on Wednesdays) is a weekly Twitter blog share of positive posts. 
Ronovan, creator of #BeWoW, has all the details for this 'positivity day' Here

Henrietta M Ross recently created #BluSkyFriday to (in her own words)  "Give us all a head start before the weekend kicks in" :o)

I'm sure there are more blog share memes than those Iv'e outlined above (#wwwblogs springs to mind) but (aside from #LinkYourLife which Iv'e yet to dip into), these are the ones that I regularly take part in.  

Thanks, all of you, for making me feel welcome, and valued :o)

  5. I'd never heard of the Thursday hashtag but what a lovely idea. The others... I participate sometimes but, if I don't have time to read and comment and RT, I don't because I feel rude putting mine in there without reciprocating. I think I miss out on a lot because of this. Anyway, thanks for the into to #ThankfulThursdays. :-)

      As for the others, if I'm not able to take part fairly I feel the same as you, it feels rude to share and run.

  19. I love finding new hashtags, a group of us got together and created # TuesdayBookBlog as too many people were abusing the #MondayBlogs with book promos. happy for others to use it for any blog posts containing book reviews, author interviews, book cover reveals etc we try to share all genuine blog posts which keep to these specs.
