Are You Pinning Yet?

I love how Pinterest is suddenly taking the UK by storm; it’s all I’ve read about the last couple of weeks. It does fascinate my inner social media geek. It’s starting to become another platform for the community of mostly parent bloggers that I belong too, to express themselves differently.

There have been various talks about how Pinterest can help boost your business/website & blog traffic by pinning away. To find that kind of articles you only have to type in ‘Pinterest’ in google to find them. I’ve created a little board for my little part of cyberspace right here; I’m mainly using it just to post things that make me smile from my blog and use it out of curiosity to see if Pinterest will actually bring a different kind of traffic to my blog.


Though for me, it’s mainly all about the fun, these are my boards which I’m usually found adding too in the evenings once the boy has gone to bed and the man is usually at work. I started using Pinterest last year to plan my wedding, hence the numerous boards filled with wedding related items.

I then went and disowned it for a while while I was dealing with my awful sickness, and I guess I was to busy in life with other things to be sparing time on my Pinterest board. That’s the great thing; you can just forget about it for a while, it’s always going to be there for you to go back too. I’m enjoying it even more now that it’s becoming more popular amongst my UK friends and I’m getting to see all the funky stuff they are pinning.

SO many different ways you can use it, I use it to find kids food ideas, decorate the kids bedroom and our house, browse products that both the toddler and baby would be forced into by me like, get creative craft ideas and maybe even start some new projects using felt, share my love of lego and plan the toddler’s lego themed party, find great ideas that just rock, plan my summer bbq’s, dribble over products that I just simply want, find mouth-watering food recipes that you just HAVE to try and make, tickle my inner geek and oh so much more.

Let me know if you’re on Pinterest, and I’ll add you, I like the fact that with Pinterest you can pick which boards you follow what your friends are pinning too. Enabling us to share our mutual interests or just be generally nosy.
