Thanks James and Dustin. You definitely added a few I have not used yet Dustin. I have a group of local #hashtags like #Washington #Oregon #PNW etc
It was a challenge to find a way to split the many permaculture #hashtags up into smaller groups.
Here is what I have tried so far.....
I created 6 Groups of 25ish hashtags out of the aprox 140 I collected from my permaculture Instagram research. See them here on Google Sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19pPtLsOckgKpbsZsbP2Da9YThNKpqWW4BzcmpMdeVb8/edit?usp=sharing
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 resilientcommunityhealthrecyclenature, earth
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.
