Instagram #'s


Hello, I hope you are well and are having a fabulous week so far. I have really been enjoying creating new pages in my bullet journal that are blog/goal related; it helps to keep me focused and motivates me more than ever. This particular bujo page and blog post revolves around Instagram hashtags (if you hadn't already worked that out by the title) and it's something I have just got to grips with. Hashtags are such a powerful tool to use to get your images out there and beyond the reach of your current following. Personally, I search hashtags all the time and even follow hashtags to find new content for my feed and to connect with other like-minded people online. I have seen a HUGE increase in engagement and followers on my blog since I started posting consistently with relevant hashtags and engaging with others.

I recently shared the above photo on my Instagram feed and it attracted quite a bit of attention for me to write this post and share what my go to hashtags are every time I post. My first tip is to save a list of hashtags not only in your bujo/journal/diary like me, but also save them on your phone where they are easily accessible to copy and paste when you need them. -hint- -hint- feel free to copy and use the hashtags I have included in this post!

Now before I get started, I just want to make it clear that popular hashtags change all the time and you've got to keep yourself current by looking at what other people are including in their hashtags and just generally by engaging on Instagram - they will crop up! Also, be sure to check the hashtags you are using because some can be banned which will lead to you being shadow banned and you don't want that. I.e things like 'XXX' which I am sure you are smart enough to not use anyway.


Did you know you can use up to 30 hashtags on each post?! I choose to put mine in a comment as soon as I post to Instagram which tends to work well as it doesn't clutter up your all important caption (which is a whole other element to perfecting the art of Instagram) so below, I have included a max of 30 hashtags for each separate category (this will make it easy for you to copy and paste), sometimes you'll even be able to mix them up a bit if your post contains a bit of everything!

These hashtags are my current go-to's but I am constantly updating them and finding new ones and I would definitely recommend you do the same! It's a good starting point for you and I hope this post has been helpful so that you can keep referring back to it when you need it. Do you have any hashtags you like to use that are a little different or don't appear on my list? I would love to know!

Love Amber x

  1. Great Post 👍🏻 I sometimes forget about hashtags on Instagram as I mainly use Twitter to promote my blog

  4. Great collection. I will add to avoid having your account flag as spam, change up your hashtags regularly, don't use the same list for every post
