@jessi_reveuse for #abmlifeiscolorful
#ABMCrafty / #ABMlifeiscolorful
A Beautiful Mess are the current reigning queens of craft and lifestyle blogging, with their gorgeous site and seemingly never ending ability to create a great hashtag. As they aim to inspire others to share their makes, lives and inspiring posts use #ABMCrafty to promote any new makes or tutorials, while #ABMlifeiscolorful (be careful of the US spelling) is great for sharing your bright pictures that have a pop of colour.
@ltblogged for #wemakecollective
DIY contributor and social media manager for the We Make Collective Claire Wilson says the hashtag #wemakecollective is the perfect way to grow your profile. “I love seeing what people have made with their subscription kits, but also all the other creative projects they are working on too,” says Claire who also runs the blog Claireabellemakes.
“It really celebrates exploring your creativity, regardless of how much experience you have or whether you have learnt a ton of skills. We also feature creatives on the feed on a weekly basis asking them to share a little more about their inspirations and process. It feels like one big creative party!”
Fran Stone who created We Make Collective also runs her own insanely successful blog Fall For DIY and her hashtags #fallfordiy and #myhandsmaking are another fantastic way to share what you’re creating with a wider audience.
@tamsynmorgans for #freestylecreativeliving
Allison Sadler won a Mollie Makes Award for her last hashtag project #makeitsewcial, so when she announced she was stepping back from the tag to take some time out, we all wondered what she would be doing next. As always Allison didn’t disappoint and announced in May her new hashtag #freestylecreativeliving. The philosophy behind the hashtag is to have the “freedom to create the life you love, your way”. There are no boundaries, you just have to share what you love. Not only has the hashtag already got off to a flying start, but the #makeitsewcial community is still going strong too.
@nursejenbob for #makersgonnamake
The immensely popular hashtag #makersgonnamake is great for sharing any projects you’re working on, tutorials or craft supplies. If your crafting is far from old fashioned, make sure you add #modernmaker for crafty types looking for on trend makes.
@woodlucker for #craftsposure
If you want to get noticed, #craftsposure is a great hashtag to follow and get involved with. The creative community @craftsposure has over 220k followers on social media where not only can you share your inspiration and creations, but thanks to the follow Friday feature and their international reach you can raise your profile and reach new readers.
@wallflower_weavings for #creativehappylife
We all strive to live a creative and happy life, so when boring things like work aren’t getting in the way, share your moments of inspiration and creativity with the super positive hashtag #creativehappylife.
@_witchcrafty for #craftbloggers
Being a blogger can be a lonely business. But you can make connections with other craft bloggers by letting them know you’re in the gang with the tag #cbloggers which is great for finding other inspiring makers. You can also use #craftblog and #craftbloggers too, and if your blog has a slight fashion or lifestyle feel to it, don’t forget to add #fbloggers and #lbloggers to get the word out.
@blogtacular for #blogtacular
The annual bloggers conference is on 18 June, but you can get involved by using the hashtag #blogtacular to not only find out who’s attending and make some early connections, but to join in the Twitter chat every Wednesday at 9pm. “We use the #blogtacular hashtag during our event each year so that people can find each other on social media and explore the event virtually,” says Blogtacular founder Kat Molesworth.
“For the Twitter chat we pose questions and everyone gives their thoughts or advice. It’s a great way to bring the community together and for people to find other bloggers whose ideas they enjoy.”
Finding opportunities for collaborations or new things to write about can be tricky. However, the hashtag #bloggerswanted on Twitter can put you in touch with other makers or companies who want to work with you. While it may be a trawl through the posts to find the right fit for your blog, it’s a great way to keep an eye out for an opportunity you may never have come across otherwise.
