#altbloggers Hashtag

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Just a very quick (and rather unplanned!) update today.

I was having a discussion with the lovely Ali from Zombies Wear Eyeliner on Twitter (I'm spending a lot of time on Twitter hiding from the current heatwave that has hit England) and we got talking about creating a hashtag for alternative bloggers for fellow Twitter users. We have a beauty hashtag, a lifestyle hashtag and various other topics out there - but so far I haven't discovered one specifically for alternative bloggers (please correct me if I'm wrong by the way). I know that I personally rely on Twitter a lot for finding new blogs to read and I think it would be really helpful to have a specific place on Twitter (and Instagram) to find similar blogs that we would enjoy reading. I think #altbloggers would probably be an appropriate hashtag (a couple of people on Twitter have already used this I think) and it'd be easy to remember. Somewhere to go to find new blogs and new posts to read!

I'd love to know whether or not you'd be on board with this! I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

  1. I'd love for this to get going! There are so few of us in the blogging scene, it'd be nice for us all to find each other xx

  2. I'm on board for this to get some momentum, I adore alternative beauty blogs but I think they can be so hard to find. Anything that makes it easier has to be a good thing. :)

    1. I completely agree, I usually find interesting blogs through comments or those blog rolls! It would make it so much either to find similar blogs to read

  3. I just hoped into the twitter train this week, but if a hashtag will help me find more interesting blogs then I'm totally excited and I'd like to help spread a word!

    1. That would be great! I'm following you on Twitter now! I tend to use it quite a lot when I'm not at university.

  4. Great hashtag! I sometimes write some very beauty-unrelated posts, so I think I'll start using this hashtag for those posts.

    1. That would be great! It's good for posts that don't really have a particular category!

  5. Great idea! Not that I'm blogging at the moment, & not that I'm particularly alt these days, but it would be handy for finding new blogs to read! xoxo

    1. Thank you, I'm glad you think so! I've just been reading your blog, I'll be following it as soon as I get home! The internet here is really weak and slow so it won't let me at the moment!
