So you all know I’m a Foodie, Gardening and Photo Freak and was one of the first 100 people at Coomers Craft Mall back in the early 90’s so when I was invited to the BETA beta testing of Pinterest I was in love at first sight!
If you’ve been living under a social media rock and don’t know what Pinterest is..
It’s like a pretty online bulletin board where you can “pin” your favorite photos from all over the web up on a categorized location where you can add notes, share with your friends and it links back to the original article where you snagged the “pin” from.
You can also drive some decent traffic to your own site by making it easy for people to “pin” your items to to Pinterest by placing a “Pin-it” sharing button on your website.
Use it just like you should be using all of the other social media site. Follow people, share their things, like their pins, comment, share on facebook and twitter. If you are at all active you can get new followers every day and potential fans and subscribers to your website.
