Friday and Pinterest just go hand in hand. Looking at pretty things and being inspired by other people is just what this tired girl needs at the end of a long week.
But before I show you a few of my favorite pins of the week, I want to share a couple of my favorite tips for using Pinterest.
#1 Be sure to put a description and picture in your bio. Whenever I get an email letting me know I have a new follower, I am less likely to follow them back if their page looks like this:
I just can’t tell enough about them. But if their page looks like this then I can see if they are a person that has the same general interest that I have:
#2 If you are a blogger or have a business, put your website in the place where you can put your location (under settings). It makes it easy to find you.
#3 Be sure you pin things that represent you well. For me personally, I won’t follow someone if I see swearing in their pins. Also, It helps to organize your boards well. That way if I like following you, but I don’t share your fascination with pug dogs, I can just unfollow your pug dog board but still keep up with the rest of your pins.
Like my board called “Hair.” Maybe you don’t care about that. But I’m telling you, there are some rockin’ hairstyles on Pinterest. Here’s my favorite from this week. Biblical Homemaking shows her favorite drug store hair products.
Isn’t she gorgeous?!
Speaking of gorgeous, this Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo from HOME made simple would stop me in my tracks!
That’s it for today! Come follow me on Pinterest for more GREAT pins!
