Do you have any Pinterest?

pinterest-2151052_960_720

 

I’ve had a Pinterest account for a while, now, but I wasn’t using it. Simply because I don’t get it just yet. I don’t really like Facebook anymore, but I understand the interest people have in that social media. I obviously love WordPress, and Instagram, although still pretty new to me, is easy to use and enjoy. I’m still struggling a bit with Twitter, and now, Pinterest is a total mystery to me.

I have started putting some pictures online (pins??) and even created a number of boards (??), but I am still lost.

Are you on Pinterest too? If so, what’s the point? Please let me know… I haven’t found any way to ”like” or comment on what I see on other people’s accounts, and other than building a collection of pictures, I don’t get what I am supposed to do.

If you are a member too, you can easily find me under the username ”Cyranny”. And if anyone manages to explain the ABC of Pinterest to me, I just might come and visit you too!

  2. The way I understand it, Instagram is to personal experience (friends, kin, classmates, work, etc) what Pinstagram is to the outside world, (favorite recipes, movie/T.V./music/sports stars. Pinstagram is for the other.Than.every.day.life side of each of us

  3. Another Pinterest fan here! Its great for collecting ideas about anything you’re interested in – more a visual search engine than social media. I’ll find you on there.

  4. You can create you own board with or without uploading any photos of yours. but can still save your ideas. Save anything you want. I love Pinterest. You can get a lot of ideas from it. Without checking anyone profile. They don’t mind either. They just want to save their ideas. and i have a lot of board too. 🙂

  5. Pinterest is great for getting ideas. My daughter is addicted to it. But from a business/blogging perspective I’ve learned the most about Pinterest by reframing it to think of it as another search engine. A well designed pin can direct traffic to your site. I’m still learning how to create a good pin but we’re getting traffic from Pinterest to our accessible ABA site. 😁

      1. I’ve read a lot about what makes a good pin and I haven’t found a lot of it to be effective. I definitely think you should create an image in canva (or a similar site). I used to try to get a variety of styles but over time I’ve decided that I much prefer having a more consistent look to them all so I keep the same template and change the color and images. Look at what draws your attention in Pinterest and try to emulate that. Also having convincing titles and using # are important. Finally you should do a Google search for rich pins. Pinterest has good instructions on what you need to include on your site to make that happen and I love the extra information I get from doing it (plus it’s good for seo so bonus!). You can email me at gratefulsinglemoms@yahoo.com if you want to talk more. I also have a collaborative website (bestlifecollaborative.com) if you’re interested in collaborating with other bloggers on the same journey. 😁

  6. I’ve had Pinterest for months but have only used it in the past 1 or 2. I use it to get more views to my blog. I pin each post on a board called Bipolar Barb. I also use it as a placeholder for writing prompts, fitness, and so on and so forth.

  7. I have never been able to get the hang of pinterest!! It’s all very confusing to me haha, but I did use it for my wedding for inspiration and some ideas for food. I barely go on anymore now though.

  8. I don’t get Pinterest, either. I have it, and a lot of boards with interesting things pinned, but… I kept reading about people getting sued really bad for pinning someone’s photo without permission. So I got leery of the whole thing. It’s still there, but I never go to it or pin anything any more. Good luck with yours! 🙂

  9. I’m there, but still trying to figure it out. I add all my posts as pins on a board called Randomness Inked. And get 2-3 views from there every week. Don’t know how to generate more traffic.
    And yes, I use it sometimes for art n craft ideas, writing prompt ideas, etc.
