I actually do realize that most of you have been addicted to Pinterest for quite some time now, and many of you use it to build your platform, grow your audience, and develop your brand. I’ve just been so focused on a few other things in life for the past several months that I just hadn’t taken the time to investigate all the ways that Pinterest can be not just lots of fun, but an enormously influential means of connecting with potential followers who are interested in the same kind of stuff that I am.
So the other day I decided to set aside a bit of time just to check it out. I already had a Pinterest account, and even had a few boards that I had created. I had also requested membership to a few group boards and would post there occasionally, but really had no clue how all of the interaction works over there. Wow! Was I in for an impressive experience!
It didn’t take long once I created a couple of new boards (so many Pinterest boards, so little time!), and I have a bunch more I’m working on, and all of a sudden I was connecting with creative bloggers all over the place. I’m still not sure how to make the best use of all these new connections yet, but it sure has been fun ;o) I’ll keep creating boards, connecting with some of the administrators of a few more group boards, and just keep on pinning away to my heart’s content!
If you have any advice, I’m certainly open to your suggestions. How do you use Pinterest? Has it been helpful to you in building your platform, growing your audience, and establishing your brand online? Or is is more just a fun way to find creative inspiration for you? I would love to hear your experiences in the world of Pinterest!
Here’s a link to one of my boards, Refashion Designs: https://www.pinterest.com/vintagemamashop/refashion-designs/
And here’s another one: Vintage Mama’s Cottage: https://www.pinterest.com/vintagemamashop/vintage-mamas-cottage/
So now I’ve got to focus on learning as much as I can about how to go about doing this Pinterest thing right . . . which really should be very Pinteresting!
