A fellow blogger (Never Say Never) posted this cartoon the other day:
I pretty much fell into the first box because I had no idea what it was or how to utilize it for bringing traffic to my blog. Until now!
Yesterday I took an online class called Pinterest 101: How to use and utilize Pinterest by Susan Peterson through altitudesummit.com (#altsummit). To read more about how I earned 4 free classes (including this one) check out my previous blog posts Must. Love. Blogging: Alt Online Classes and Bing’s Summer of Doing. It was very informative, even though most of it went over my head since I didn’t yet have a pinterest account! Until today! My request for an invitation was accepted so I’m finally on Pinterest! This evening I just started this ‘pinning’ thing and realized I should make art boards with lots of photos so that multiple things can be pinned at once (using Illustrator skills, yeah!). If you are interested in seeing what I have so far on Pinterest or want to follow me (so I can also follow you) click here!
The instructor, Susan, gave a powerpoint presentation and answered LOTS of questions people had about Pinterest. To check out her Pin Boards click here and to check out her blog called freshly-picked click here!
