I am a Pinterest pro. Know how I KNOW I’m a Pinterest pro/reasons you should follow me if that’s your thing?
5 Ways I Rock at Pinterest
1. I pin on a variety of topics.
CHANCES ARE, we have something in common Pinterest-wise. I have boards dedicated to recipes, boards dedicated to all my nerdy interest, boards for writing, boards for reading(yes, the plural’s for a reason), boards for design, a board for blogging, etc. If we have common ground at ALL, you will be able to find it on my Pinterest page.
2. I use the “like” feature as a save pin feature so I don’t OVERWHELM anyone who follows me.
Of course, we all go on re-pinning sprees from time to time(we do, right? That’s not just me?) BUT I utilize the LIKE button like nobody’s business. It’s my own personal Pinterest queue.
3. I organize my Pinterest boards like nobody’s business.
Let me put it this way: My Pinterest boards are more organized than my room is. I go through periodically and make sure everything’s pin to the right board. If I see a board is being over-run by a certain “theme”, I’ll make a new board. That’s why I have separate food-related boards for appetizers, meals, and desserts. I have 3 boards dedicated to bookish-things alone.
4. I am a link checker(at least when it matters!)
There’s few things on Pinterest more fustrating than clicking on a pin just to see that it was pinned incorrectly. Maybe the pin’s link is broken, directs to spammy content, or just the homepage of a blog or website instead of a specific post. For pins that require click-through, I CHECK before I pin. You’ll always know that recipe I re-pinned actually goes TO the recipe.
5. I pay attention to my Pin captions.
There are few things more embarrassing, social-media wise, than pinning a pin with a caption that YOU didn’t write and can lead to all sorts of awkwardness. Like, say I pin something and the original caption says something about expecting a baby. EXCEPT *I’m* not expecting a baby! Ah, the Pinterest confusions. I’ve gotten into the habit of checking my captions & rewriting them when necessary.
Of course, these are all in good fun(though true!). I’m not quite arrogant enough to think I’m a Pinterest pro. . . maybe a Pinterest apprentice. However, I do use Pinterest quite frequently, so feel free to check out my boards if we have anything in common! Also, feel free to let me know if you’re a heavy Pinterest user/your Pinterest name in the comments!
