I spend way too much time on Pinterest. I have the app on my phone and it is just so convenient. Sometimes I just browse the feeds. Sometimes I have an idea and go to Pinterest for related inspiration. I also do my fair share of pinning. I am working back through all the posts I have starred in my Google Reader from pre-Pinterest days and pinning them.
Pinterest has rapidly become the top referring source of traffic to my blog. And, it is no wonder why…we are all addicted to it. I most certainly spend more time on Pinterest than all the other social sites (Facebook and Twitter) combined. As much traffic as I get from Pinterest, I give it right back. Pinterest has become one of my favorite ways to find new-to-me blogs.
Yesterday was a snow day here and my plans to work on the basement were dashed. During brief breaks throughout the day where my son played Angry Birds, I took some time to clean up my Pinterest boards. I made sure all my titles were in order. It was kind of weird that I kept pinning hair styles and makeup tutorials to my Fashion board. I renamed it Fashion & Beauty. I also edited all my cover photos. I think my Pinterest page looks mighty fine now and very much represents the Teal & Lime brand.
I added a new widget to the sidebar of the blog. It shows you What I’m Pinning from all my boards real-time. You can see the latest right there and click on through to pin it yourself. You will also be able to tell when I go on an obsessive pinning spree of red and blonde highlighted hair or French drying racks.
Lastly, I released one of my secret pin boards……..ooh! I use my secret boards mostly for client work, and I had one dedicated to DIY ideas. Since the DIY ideas are a free bonus with a mood board purchase, I began to wonder why I was keeping them secret. There were more than 180 awesome ideas on that board, and it is the board I pin to most often. So, I took the step I can never take back (according to Pinterest) and made my secret board public. I am all about the free exchange of DIY ideas.
With all my Pinterest updates, I want to invite you to follow me on Pinterest. It’s like a crazy view into how my mind works and what inspires me.
P.S. Want a fun way to see what other readers are pinning from Teal & Lime? You can go to here to see a feed of all the Teal & Lime content being pinned. Might help you discover a great project from my archives. It kind of gives you a view into what’s popular any given day. Of course, repinning Teal & Lime goodness is always welcome and encouraged :)
