25 Hashtags for New BLK Travel Bloggers

When it comes to social media, using hashtags is a great way to gain exposure. But lets face it, using #blogger and #travel aren’t going to cut it in the world of travel bloggers when you’re just getting started. You’re stylish vacation outfits and photos of your scenic views from your hotel balcony are sure to be lost in a sea of posts from users with millions of followers using those same tags. So how can you, a new black travel blogger looking to gain social media exposure, use hashtags to compete with top travel influencers? Well that’s just it, you don’t.

As new travel blogger, specifically a black travel blogger, you’ll want to stick to hashtags that have a decent amount of usage, but aren’t overly used. Since Instagram allows 30 hashtags per post, here’s 25 hashtags I recommend using if you have less than 5,000 Instagram followers.
