I was first annoyed by the concept of #hashtags. All of a sudden placing a #hashtag #beforealonglistofridiculousyetseeminglyclevercomments is an accepted way to communicate. That approach is still annoying; however, hashtags used effectively can be both fun and effective.
Commonly used hashtags are an awesome way to further explore you favorite topics within instagram. Are you into hunting #muledeer or #elk? Would you describe yourself as a #huntinfool?
I often find myself glued to various instagram #hashtags while utilizing the instagram search function. This series of blog posts will highlight the most stunning pictures within a given #hashtag. I will take into consideration photos posted within a 52wk time frame. In this my first edition I will focus on one of the best!
