So, when I first got my Pinterest account, I think I was in high school. Actually, I am 75% sure I was in high school. I used to see fashion ideas and saved them; I never looked at Pinterest as being something to apply for a business or blog. Granted back then I never thought I would blog. Pinterest was something people were on and did not really utilize it the way I am going to explain to you today. In 2018, I want you to know…Pinterest is essential for bloggers.
I mentioned this before, but I thought other bloggers were bs(ing) me when they would always talk about Pinterest this and Pinterest that. In my head, I wasn’t going to utilize Pinterest because I was unaware of how they wanted it to be used. Eventually, I realized I was wrong. Completely wrong and I invested in courses and read blog posts on how to truly succeed on Pinterest.
Honestly, taking Pinterest seriously was one of the best things that I could have done to help my blog grow. So, yes I am glad that I finally made the time to study and learn Pinterest because Pinterest is essential for bloggers and their growth.
As you all may know, I talk about Pinterest frequently. Well, that is because I know it will help you all and your blog’s success and it’s free help! So continue to read my friends per usual, I am always here to assist.
