IF YOU use Twitter you know hashtags. If you use WordPress you know tags, although I still see plenty of blogs that are missing out on potential views because they’ve omitted tags from each post. Tags categorise your post and what subjects it relates to I.E. writing, fiction, short story, star wars, nuns who love bananas etc. Without them, when people search for something you wrote your post will not be considered and only followers will be alerted to the fact you’ve put out new material.
Because we often reuse the same hashtags and tags it’s nice not to have to retype them. So what’s the scoop?
Simply go to a recent post, highlight the tags or select all the hashtags and copy them. Open a word document or something similar like NotePad, paste the tags and hashtags and save them there for future use on the desktop.
So next time you have a post ready to go, open the word document, copy then paste into the tag window. Same with twitter.
And what’s this: a second Christmas?! A bonus tip?: Want to screencapture as in get a snapshot of what’s on your screen like the ones above? Press FN+PRTSC then open paint and paste. CTRL+PrintScreen might also work, there’s a few variations.
