Blogtober 2017 | Day 30 – What’s the deal with Pinterest?

I haven’t spent a great deal of time I Pinterest. Until recently, I didn’t really get how Pinterest benefits bloggers. I still don’t really understand it, but I’m told it’s a must! So this is a little snippet into my venture into using Pinterest, in the absence of a list of great boards to follow …

Don’t get me wrong, I do have boards, and am following others, but I haven’t spent enough time on there to decide which ones I really like/find useful, and don’t feel comfortable just name-dropping for the sake of it!

So, what’s deal?

From what I gather, Pinterest can be useful for bloggers because people searching for tips, ideas, activities, projects, and similar content, may turn up blog posts in their search results and possibly click through to the blog to read the article. To do this, bloggers need to create “pinnable images” that appeal to their target audience, and briefly outline the subject of the post. I am yet to do this, but this definitely on my list!

My “to do” list for Pinterest:

1. Hide existing boards that are irrelevant to my audience ✅

2. Create relevant boards ✅

3. Follow relevant boards ✅

4. Join group Pinterest boards 🚧

5. Create pinnable images for my appropriate blog posts 📋

6. Add pins to my blog posts 📋

7. Actually pin my posts 📋

As you can see, I’ve got a long road ahead of me … but I’ll get there!

    I’m a new blogger and just trying to get my head around pinterest and its value for me too! I only really ever attributed pinterest to more visual things like craft activities and fashion so it’s a learning curve for me! Ihope you whittle your to-do list down a bit soon! x
