There's a PDF version coming up this weekend, to be posted to my Kofi profile. I'll add the link toward the end when it goes up, after the questions, where you can also sign up for email updates.
- community suggestions,
- mental health hashtags,
- Medical crowdfunding hashtags,
- and a section for cancer-related hashtags.
This group of hashtags is for topical discussions, community, activities and/or awareness. Most are inclusive of more than one chronic illness, disability or diagnosis.
Please keep in mind that
- This is a volunteer project I do for free,
- It's not meant to be comprehensive - there are many hashtags purposely not included
- I welcome your suggestions.
These are hashtags I considered adding which didn’t quite make it due to:
not enough people updating,
too much non-patient content,
or otherwise not quite right .
They may be added permanently in future updates.
If this is your first time reading this list, you've probably noticed that your favorite hashtag may not be included.
I start with a cluster of conditions, say autoimmune diseases, and cover the top tags that fit. Then next round, I do a deeper dive.
Anyway... more FAQs below, feel free to reply where ever or DM with other ?s.
Every time I ask myself the main reason? It changes.
Today, it's about giving back to the community that gives to me. To have something tangible to point at to remind me that just because i don't make the money I used to, doesn't mean I'm useless.
This become one of the ways I raise extra income to close the gap between what I earn from selling ebooks, classes and writing.
Even a dollar here and there helps!
Over the months I collect active patient-focused hashtags in a file. Then they are vetted tags for recent activity, as well as updates frequent and varied enough to foster community.
You may have noticed that I capitalize each word in the hashtag. This makes it more readable and accessible, esp for people using screen readers.
*Where/how can you add to this list or correct/update a listing?
There are three ways.
Most comprehensive resource for medical related hashtags on the web, period. If you have a new hashtag, add it there too!
Eventually I'll include other platforms.
I'm getting close to believing I'm covering most active hashtags. Then I want to add ways to support disabled art & entrepreneurs. Facebook or IG are next after that.
