Hashtags are unfathomably powerful things that I haven’t developed a full understanding of yet. I googled the meaning of ‘Hashtag’ yesterday. I’ve taken its purpose a little for granted until this point but I need to use them a lot now. I’m having to focus on Instagram and they are key in developing my audience and customer base. I’m finding it a bit of a complex minefield.
I decided to write my blog about hashtags today but found myself quite distracted by the artwork I made for it. I designed magazines for about nineteen years (which I loved) and then I stopped about eight years ago. I didn’t do much design work for years due to my family and other commitments but because of my recent project I’ve started designing again and its been lovely to get back to it. I find that making and communicating something visual using colours, images, symbols and words, is really quite rewarding.
