Pinterest Help Needed

I keep reading about Pinterest, but to be honest I can't quite figure out how to use it to find all the neat things all of you keep finding.

I hate that I can't find all the great ideas to pin and learn from.  Any suggestions and tips will be appreciated!

Well, you know how when you're blogstalking and you see a really great idea but then you don't remember where you saw it? Now you can pin it. You also should follow other people's boards and you'll find great ideas that way. Lots of bloggers have a "follow me on pinterest" button on their blogs. You'll get notifications that people have pinned something from you, then you can go check out their boards. I have a pinterest button on my blog, follow me or check out my boards. Put a pinterest button on your blog. I'll follow you.

I LOVE Pinterest! I was hesitant at first, but now I'm addicted. It is a super helpful way to keep all of my "bookmarked" ideas organized. I'm finding all kinds of great ideas on the boards that I follow too. The first thing you'll have to do is go to the Pinterest site to request an invite. I have Pinterest follow button on my blog if you want to check out my boards. If you sign up, let us know so we can follow your boards. :)

I find my best ideas by clicking on one of my friends and going through their specific boards. I also search for a specific items. Example: I'll put Math in the search bar and anything with a Math label can be pulled up. I also just added the Pin It bar to my Bookmark bar. I'm enjoying Pinning stuff!

Good Luck!


I am totally addicted to Pinterest also!!! You need put the "Pin it" button on your toolbar, just drag it up there-that way anything that you see on the web, you just click "pin it" and it will save it for you. Just like the other girls said, check out the Pinterest pages of all your blog followers and you will find some great things!

Here is my Pinterest boards.

You can follow them and then anything that I pin will pop up on your main board too. (this is how I have found so many neat things-from other peoples pins!)

At first I didn't 'get' pinterest either. Oh boy, 10 minutes reading thru the FAQs & playing around and I was on a roll! Now I have the Pin It bookmarklet on my laptop AND my iPad and I'm in hog heaven!

Give it a little of your undivided attention. Trust me, you won't regret it, especially if you are a visual person like me.
