    The only thing I didn’t find obnoxious about this post was the explanation of hashtags, as I realize there are people out there who don’t know what they are for or how to use them. Perhaps it’s also worth mentioning that punctuation in hashtags effectively end the hashtag.
    As a hashtag abuser of every kind listed in this article (and others not listed), I’m intentional in my abuse of them and this article only makes me want to do more abusing because I find it highly entertaining and comical that people care enough to write articles about such things in such an opinionated and emotional fashion. #sometimesimimmature
    They are hashtags for heaven’s sake. If you don’t want to decipher them, don’t try.
    I always find it interesting when people have opinions about how others use social media. Advice for people trying to use social media in a specific way (to advertise, to get a job, to get followers) or for newbies? Fine. But otherwise, it’s someone’s personal feed. If you don’t like it, don’t follow them. Or silence their wall. Or don’t read the hashtags. Or think to yourself, “Wow, that’s obnoxious,” and get on with your life.
    Along the “advice” lines, this post could have been written in a way that was more in that tone and it would have been a lot less irritating and judgmental sounding, in my opinion. Isn’t that the premise of your blog? Instead, you’ll likely now have a bunch of non-tech savvy mom’s out there thinking they’re doing it wrong. When really, they’re just not doing it how you think they should. One of my biggest issues with mommy-bloggers is how so many of you are so opinionated about how other people (especially moms) do things.
    I’m hoping this post was intended to be more advice than judgement, and probably more lighthearted than it sounds.

    He he, I know a few hashtag happy people. I am amazed by some that people come up with. I am bad at remembering to use them. New follower from Mom it Forward on several channels.
