I’ve decided that, from time-to-time, I’ll pepper A Daily Something with
my sage blogging wisdom. Just kidding about the sage blogging wisdom
part. I’ve only been around for a little over two years and I still learn new things every single day. Not kidding about sharing little tidbits of blogging knowledge I’ve picked up over the last few years. I frequently get emails about how to start a blog/stay inspired/etc. If only I knew half of what I know now back when I first started…but part of the fun has been to see the progress over the years. Today I’m sharing all about using Pinterest beyond the inspiration.
Yes, it’s a wonderful way to waste time, to be inspired, and to magically feel like you’ve actually accomplished something creative after pinning for 4 hours. However, if you’re a blogger, you can use it for so much more.
I’m sure you all use it for actual real-life party inspiration. It’s awesome for that. I use it for photoshoot inspiration all the time (and sometimes keep the boards private, which is a fantastic option). Right now, I’m working on a fun collaboration with a new brand and I’m styling a brunch shoot. Here’s my inspiration board. I want it to be bright and airy, botanical and earthy, and clearly, have plenty of scrumptious food.
Seize opportunities! As I mentioned above, I’m collaborating with a brand for the brunch shoot. The connection was made via Pinterest! After pinning one of their products, they contacted me about a partnership. A few phone and email conversations later, we have a few exciting plans up our sleeves! Brands are looking for authentic bloggers and pinners to work with!
I learned this little tip from Bri, and use it all the time. Go to the Pinterest homepage, and after their url, type “/source/yourwebsite.com“. This will take you to a magical place. You will see every image that’s been pinned from your website or blog! This is a wonderful way to gauge what posts your readers like best. Digging even deeper, it teaches you what images from a particular post people like best. My most popular posts (as you can see from the screen shots above) are my diys. AND not the how-to pictures. Readers like the final product shots. You can learn so much for your blog (what to do and what not to do) from keeping an eye on this page!
That’s it for today’s tidbits of blogging information! See more of my “Working-From-Home” series.
