Starting with NaJoWriMo for October 16, I’m promoting the use of the Twitter hashtag, #amjournalwriting.
By using this hashtag, you can communicate your daily journal writing habit to follow journal keepers, and encourage your Twitter contacts to start keeping journal.
How It Works
If you never used an hashtag on Twitter, it’s really easy. Just add the hashtag to the end of your tweet, or any part of your tweet where it seems appropriate.
Here’s example of a tweet I recently wrote using the hashtag:
Next, you can view the tweets that use the hashtag by doing a search on Twitter, or you can link to and bookmark this page to see all the tweets.
Day 5 - April NaJoWriMo challenge! Using daily prompts to focus thoguhts. Join in!
@NaJoWriMo I am on day 10 and going strong towards self renewal! Lots of good thoughts in my journal this month so far. #amjournalwriting
@NaJoWriMo Nope, not my first time for NaJoWriMo. First time paying for the prompts so I am being more diligent than previous attempts.

See You On Twitter
I hope the #amjournalwriting hashtag is good idea, and that it encourages us to keep up with our journal writing, as well as encourage others to discover the power of journal writing for personal growth.
If you think the hashtag is a useful idea, please use it as often as possible. It may take a while to catch on, but the more it’s used, the more others will start using it.
