I’m sure most of you have heard by now of the popular online bulletin board that is Pinterest. But do you know what to do with yet another social platform? Do you lie awake at night wondering what on earth you should pin? Well, there’s a very simple answer that I will expound upon in the coming paragraph…Pin what YOU enjoy.

Repin things that you think are interesting but try to add new things to the board. Think of Pinterest as an ongoing conversation that you are having with everyone else online. How do you want to interact with all of those people? Where do you want to lead the conversation? I just try to let Pinterest speak to the masses by ensuring that my profile represents me, my style and just things I generally enjoy. The best way you can add to the conversation is by sharing new pins and categorizing them WELL. This allows people, whom are searching for the items that you are pinning, to find them with ease. I’m always amazed at how many new and awesome websites that I come across just by paying attention to other people’s original pins. This is really where you can set your Pinterest account apart from many others. Pin items from those cool little websites that not very many of us know about. Share the products that you love because they make your life easier in some way. Share things that are on your wishlist. But most importantly, have fun decorating your board just like you did with your room back home. Happy Pinning!
