Hello everyone! A friend of mine is involved in publicity and outreach for the Pacific Northwest Permaculture Convergence and she's starting an instagram account for it. She's trying to come up with some good hashtags so that her posts will be more visible (the more hashtags the more likely the post is to be found). She already has some great ideas (see below) but more would be appreciated, including anything catchy or that rhymes! These are just a few of what she's come up with
I would love feedback.
Are their any I missed?
Do you have any favorites to be sure to include?
Should any be excluded?
Do you have any questions or ideas?
Here is what to look for. Find the worksheet (bottom tab) called '6 Groups of 25ish'.
These were created by categorizing all 140 hashtags into 4 major groups:
1. Local (Washington, Oregon, etc)
2. Permaculture (has the P word in the term)
3. Food, Plants & Medicine (often gardening, farming, homestead related)
4. Sustainable - 5 sub-groups:
sustainable, regenerative or resilient
Instagram works best (makes us more findable) with more hashtags. Each post can have up to 30.
I will rotate the 6 groups of 25 hashtags with each picture posted.
Using 25 (vs 30) will allow each picture to have room to use upto 5 hashtags that are very relevant to the picture (ie #kale),
right in the caption, using the file name.
You could also pick your own favorite 30 permaculture terms for me and that would also help.
Thanks for your support everyone,
P.S. Once the hashtags are done, and we start posting @NorthwestPermaculture here https://www.instagram.com/northwestpermaculture/, our Convergence's new Instragram account, we can all start engaging in the conversations around permaculture, commenting, liking, following, tagging others and sharing.
I believe STUN is from a man named Mark Shepard and stands for Sheer Total Utter Neglect, which is one way people like him grow their trees. The idea is that it will force the trees to adapt, though not everyone in permaculture agrees it is the best method
When you reach your lowest point, you are open to the greatest change.
We are becoming a Nation that has lost it's Common Sense.Saving the Earth using Permaculture just makes SENSE! Think about how you can live on a Planet that not only are you happy with but is "happy with you"?! Right?💁
"Maker" is a trendy term for people who "Make"/craft stuff - they identify with a wide variety of arts and crafts made by hand fromunconventional materials, so it incorporates traditional things like knitting and woodworking, but also 3D printing, plastic and leather works, unconventional "trash art," etc.
Many people who are "makers" are outside the permaculture world, but may be interested in our tenets of frugality, re-use, and minimal living - it's a good "loss-leader" hashtag.
