The Newest Social Media Hashtags For Writers | Web Design Relief

Hashtags are a great way to make your social media posts more discoverable. For social media, a “hashtag” is a # sign followed by words or phrases (#amwriting, #writingcommunity). When clickable, a hashtag allows your followers to track ongoing conversations and sort posts according to interests, and can expand the reach of your posts beyond the fans who already follow you. While hashtags are more popular on some social media platforms than others, they can still boost your post’s reach and engagement in any feed. The social media experts at Web Design Relief have put together a list of the newest, best social media hashtags for writers to help you grow your online audience.

Working with the Web Design Relief team was a total pleasure. They made the process easy, in-depth, professional, and lyrical. I wanted a site that leaned toward the bohemian and yet held an edge of minimalist sophistication. I couldn’t be happier with my very inviting and creative site! We should win awards with this one!

I cannot possibly detail how professional and helpful Web Design Relief has been in helping me launch my collection of short stories—there are just too many things they have done! They’ve been there for me all along the way, guiding me in developing my book and into the 21st century of web design and social media platforms. It could have been a bewildering journey; Instead it was one that was organized and so pleasant. Truly, Web Design Relief has blown me away by what they have created. The first time I watched my book trailer (who knew there were book trailers?), I cried. That team perfectly imaged what my book is about. I want to thank the whole team for their skill and creativity. I appreciate it so much.
