Hey there, Indies!
I saw an ad for a car insurance policy the other night, in which the entirety of the plot hinged upon the confusion caused by hashtags. The premise was, “only people “of a certain age” have this issue; but the more we chat about hashtags on the podcast, the more the other hosts and I realize uncertainty abounds upon this subject among folks of all age groups*.
Never fear, intrepid Indies; we on the podcast are ready to (finally!) boldly go where we heretofore have been too unmotivated to go before – our handy dandy search engines – to try to crack a modern day riddle, “What is the power of the hashtag?”
That’s right – we’re finally going to “hashtag: make time for that,” and look the information up – all in the name of “research” for the podcast!
Do you see now how much you all enrich our lives!?
Tune in this week to finally hear someone try to make sense of hashtags (or should I write it, #hashtags? Does it matter in an email?!) all wrapped up in the shenanigans y’all have come to expect from us rascally upstarts!
We’ll endeavor to answer questions such as,
- What is a hashtag?
- When is it inappropriate to use a hashtag?
- Do hashtags even do anything on facebook?
If you don’t see your burning hashtag (#hashtag?!) question listed, join us in the live chat! We always have plenty of new and experienced writers alike ready to encourage and support one another along the journey towards publication, and beyond!
See you there,
* Full disclosure; I am exactly the age of the people being mocked in the commercial; thus, I declare, “that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!”
