100 Instagram hashtags for bloggers and how they can significantly boost your following


Ok so let's be honest here, Instagram has gotten pants lately. We can all admit it. What with the recent updates, especially the scrapping of photos appearing in chronological order, it's become less about the photo's themselves and all about trying to beat the algorithm and get yourself seen.

And it's shitty. Just plain shitty. But if you're on Instagram to try and promote your blog, like so many of us are, then unfortunately you do what you gotta do to get your posts out there.

One thing I've found to still be really helpful, despite all the latest changes, are hashtags.


Hashtags still remain a solid way to get your photos seen. I've been on Instagram for years but never used hashtags until the start of this year when I cottoned on to the fact that basically everyone else does. And I can totally see why as since doing so myself my follower count has doubled.

I thought I'd show you a few of my favourite blogger hashtags. The ones I use on a daily basis and the ones that seem to get my pictures seen the most.

Motherhood Hashtags

If you're a parent blogger there's certainly not a lack of hashtags available for you to find those who are like-minded. The mummy community on Instagram is actually my favourite, so many supportive mums (and dads) out there and I've found so many amazing new blogs via the parenting hashtags lately. My favourites are

#acupofmotherhood #parenthood #mamahood #ig_motherhood #motherhoodsimplified #inspiremothers #ohheymama #motherhoodrising #honestmotherhood #igmotherhood #motherhoodalive #motherhoodthroughinstagram # motherhoodunplugged # mummyblogger #amomentinmotherhood #rockingmotherhood #thisparentlife #momsohard #momswithcameras #mumswithcameras #pbloggers #mammarazzi_square #pbloggeruk #dailyparenting #cameramama #ohmamamoment #mumblog #ig_bbcck (this one is run by the blog bump facebook club for members. I'd suggest joining if you haven't already as it's a lovely group)

Insta Community Hashtags

I love being involved in these, I think it's such a fab idea. Insta communities are basically a group of people who moderate a certain hashtag. If you hashtag an appropriate photo then whoever runs the community will pick one or a few favourite photos at the end of each week and post on their account. If your photo gets picked its a great way to get recognition and to find great new insta accounts too. Here are some of my favourites

#littleloves #siblingsproject #littlefierceones #watchthemlearn #dearphotographer #curiouslittleexplorers #littlefamiliesofig

Do you use hashtags often? If so, what have you found to be your favourites?
