Do you know the right Hashtag to use when you tweet?

Authors and writers can find Twitter a great information source.

All it takes is using, and searching for the right #Hashtag.

There are lots of lists and lots of Hashtags to choose from, too bad I lost the cheat sheet I’d used for years.

Thank goodness for WENDY VAN CAMP! And her terrific list. I’m going to print out the dang thing in triplicate and tape one above my desk, one on my desk, and one in my file.

  • Want to connect with other authors for help? There’s a Hashtag for that.
  • Want to connect with writers of various genres? There’s a Hashtag for that.
  • Want to connect with readers? There’s a Hashtag for that. 

WENDY VAN CAMP gives us a list for all of them!

How to start tweeting like a pro right now

And boy o boy, I need to start tweeting more.

Up until now, I’ve been so lame. That’s right, a lame tweeter. But not for long.

Why? I want to be good on social media and don’t want to do anything half-assed. Even tweeting.

This morning I was excited to read an email from Suzanne Bowditch on how to do just that, tweet like a pro.(click to tweet)

Suzanne gave five good tips on what to do to engage with others on Twitter. Here is what mined from her great post.

  1. People love freebies- so promote free products even if it’s not yours.
  2. Ask a question- yes but also answer questions with questions.
  3. Want retweets, ask for them true- but don’t forget to retweet others.
  4. Use the right hashtag- but don’t go hashtag crazy.
  5. Learn from other successful tweeters.
  6. Mine – Keep tweeting, don’t give up.

Now head over to Suzanne’s blog and read her post. I’d love to hear what you think.
