Instagram Hashtags I Swear By

best instagram hashtags blogger grow following likes

Now, I don't know if you've noticed, but recently, I've been trying to up my Instagram game. But instead of doing this with the aim of gaining followers (because LET'S FACE IT, with the current algorithm, that ain't gonna happen), I've been putting that little bit of extra effort in because I genuinely enjoy doing so. Having an aesthetically pleasing Insta feed gives me a little perk up every time I open the app, which is so much nicer than stressing about the follow/unfollow game or whether you'll make it to 156 followers by next Christmas. However, sometimes it is nice for a photo you've worked hard on to get a bit of recognition, and not just in the form of bots commenting "great shot omg (follow me back?)". To enable you to rake in those likes, I've created a list of all the hashtags that I've found actually work, organised by theme. Don't say I'm not good to you.

I hope that this Insta-guide will be helpful to a good many of you, but just remember that you can only use 30 hashtags per photo, or your well-crafted caption will disappear, so watch out.

How are you feeling about Instagram at the moment? Sad, pissed off, or simply apathetic? Let me know in the comments below, and leave your Insta handle too so that I can follow you! My feed can be found here.

Until next time,
