I love Pinterest, however, I’m not really comfortable. Sure, I can click and pin or “like”, but my boards are a mess and I feel out of my element there. I’m working my way through Pinterest for Dummies
and starting to feel like I can win the title of Pinterest Rockstar!
If you don’t know what Pinterest is–like, for example, my husband, it’s a social bookmarking site that is flooding social media. It is used by everyone! There are regular folks, photographers, bakers, party planners, make-up artists, and more. All create virtual pinboards and use them to “save” the bookmark for future reference. You can also follow others, repin, like and comment on pins. commenting on pins.
Pinterest for Dummies takes out the frustration. This book will guide you through:
- Requesting an invitation and setting up your account
- Finding people to follow and connect with other social networks
- Using the community features such as commenting, liking, and hashtags
- Utilizing Pinterest for event planning, recipe organization, and more
My pinboards need work, but my favorite is the Recipes. I love finding new ideas and trying new recipes.
Pinterest is ever-changing. I can’t believe how much time I spend over there with all the new pins. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to connect.
Pinterest for Dummies is very thorough and organized, making it a great resource that’s easy to understand. I really enjoyed the chapter on how to properly credit sources and track traffic for referrals.
This is a great guide for anyone, new or seasoned, wanting to get more out of Pinterest, or just know where to begin!
