Can we talk about hash tags for a second? Over the last few years, Twitter has revolutionized the use of the number sign #. For those who aren’t on Twitter, the concept of hashtags probably doesn’t make sense…at least it took my cousin AGES to somewhat wrap her head around it.
In a nutshell, a # is an easy way for people to search for tweets that have a common topic. For example, if you search #ModernFamily, tweets relating to the TV show will come up. By incorporating hashtags into your tweets, you can “trend” a topic and attract a wider audience. Hashtags also add comical value to a tweet, by giving the author a chance to contradict what he/she is saying or to poke fun e.g. #mylifeissohard.
As it’s been a while since I’ve done one of my Hey It’s Okay posts, it’s time to bring it back…with the addition of hashtags
Hey It’s Okay…
- To be forever dependent on Gmail to remind you about uploading an attachment #gotmyback

- To be really upset when you accidentally drop your favourite clip in the toilet #Butterfingers
- …And to then debate fishing out said clip #answerisno
- To want to laugh when your grandmother refers to “Wi-Fi” as “Hi-Fi” #rollwiththetimes
- To entirely resonate with this photo #storyofmylife
- To not feel amazing, revitalized, or cleansed after hot yoga..and instead actually feel like crap #bikramyoga
- For holiday mode to kick in…11 days too early #Londoncalling
- To spend £50 on protein powder without batting an eyelid yet debate whether it’s worth paying £1.69 for an app #pennywisepoundfoolish
- To rely on 10-second rule when your food falls on the floor #dontjudge
- To give up trying to decide what to have for dinner and just resort to a bowl of cereal instead…#becauseican
