I’ve had a Pinterest account for quite a while now, but it’s not until recently that I became obsessed with it. If you’re not on Pinterest yet (especially if you’re a blogger) you need to get an account ASAP.
As much as I love blogging, it can get a bit frustrating sometimes. There is so much more to this than a lot of people realize. There are days when I feel stuck and lack inspiration and ideas. Sometimes I can spend up to 3 hours trying to photograph my products or recipes until I finally give up (trust me, it can be a bit difficult, especially during this time of the year when it’s dark and gloomy most of the time). That’s when Pinterest really comes in handy.
I see Pinterest as an endless source of knowledge, inspiration and ideas. If you’re a blogger like me, you can also use it as a tool to bring traffic to your blog. Whenever I publish a blog post, I always make sure to pin a featured image to Pinterest. Few months a go I also installed a Pinterest image hoover button on my blog (for those using wordpress, the plugin that I recommend is jQuery Pin It Button For Images-I found this to work best). Ever since I did this, I noticed that my traffic grew and I get a bunch of Pinterest referrals to my blog on daily basis. I would definitely recommend looking into group boards as well. There are lots of “blogger” boards where a group of bloggers pin images linking back to their blogs. Usually, all you have to do is email the blogger who created the board, and they’ll send you a board invite via email. As always, it’s very, very important not to spam. No one likes it, I personally don’t approve comments on my blog that seem spam-y. Always make sure that the images you pin are of good quality and that the links are directed properly. There are also endless blogging tips and tricks, photography tutorials and a lot more.
We’re planning on renovating our master bedroom next Spring and my head is already bursting with ideas, lots of them were influenced by the images I found through Pinterest.
Whether you’re a blogger or not, you can find Pinterest very, very useful. From weekday dinner recipes, fun lifahacks to style and beauty inspiration, Pinterest has something to offer to everyone. Do you guys have a favorite Pinterst account? I’m always looking for new and fun accounts to follow. You can find me on Pintererst right here.
