Looks like a foreign language to me, LOL. That has been my exact feelings about using "hashtags" on posts. I always thought that it was a pound sign...
If you are listing your pieces or products for sale on social media it's a must to use hashtags as this is how many people search for items. They might enter the word "dresser" and t will pick it up if you have hash tagged it!
When I post my listings I forget to add them quite often and then have to go back and add them. I keep thinking, I need a list I can copy and paste for all of my hashtags so I don't spend my precious listing them every time.
So here's your hashtag starter list:
#painteddresser (or whatever the piece is)
#redfurniture (or whatever color)
#(furniture brand or maker)
