In this article, we’ll show you how to make a book using a hashtag.

Meet Heather

Heather is a mother of four, a professional photographer, and the social media manager here at Chatbooks. If you think you take a lot of pictures of your kids, you need to meet Heather! She is constantly pulling out her phone or camera to snap a photo of all of her kids’ funny, cute, and even horrible moments.

In order to keep all of her kids’ photos organized, Heather created a hashtag Photo Book Series for each of her children. Every time she posts a photo of her kids, she uses a personalized hashtag that will automatically upload the photo to that specific child’s book.

I love Chatbooking this way because it’s a super easy way to organize my kids’ photos as they grow. They love having their own Chatbooks of themselves and I can’t wait to be able to pass the books on to them when they have their own families (after I order another set for myself, of course 😀).” says Heather.

And the kids love their Chatbooks too! Every night, before bed, they grab their Chatbooks and relive their happiest moments. It’s become a fun family tradition at bedtime!

Here’s how Heather makes her Hashtag Series Books:

1. Create a new Instagram Series.
