When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I started using Pinterest in early 2012. At first, I didn’t see why I would even need an account, and thought I’d just browse instead. Within a few days, I could see that creating that account would then mean you would have a place to keep all of your recipes, craft ideas, etc… so you could refer back to them later and requested an invitation to join Pinterest. I’ve been hooked ever since.
Why do you like Pinterest?
Oh my gosh! What’s not to like? There’s something about just mindlessly pinning that is actually rather relaxing and enjoyable – not to mention addicting.
You have gained over 4.3 million Pinterest followers! That is amazing! What makes your Pinterest unique?
I try to clean up extra or unrelated wording on pins I repin, or all caps – which just make it look like you’re shouting at people. I do try to pick nice vertical pins so my boards look nice. My boards are always organized alphabetically – I have to have them that way. Slight OCD issues maybe? Haha.
Also, I go through my boards almost daily and take a row and change the cover photos and then I’ll go try to find a few pins for each of the boards in that row so no board gets left behind.
