It may come as no secret that I love Pinterest! I've been using it for years, and I can't imagine my life without it. At first, it was just an idle curiosity. What was this new site all about? How could it benefit me? Later, I dove deeper into all things Pinteresting, becoming an addict almost. Now as a full time Pinterest manager, I can't imagine a world without Pinterest.
Here are the 9 reasons why you will always find me happy about Pinterest.
If you are new to the platform, I suggest reading: Your Quick Start Guide to Pinterest for Small Business. Even if you're not going to be using the platform for business purposes, that article will help you get the basic idea of how you can use Pinterest for yourself.
I have been using Pinterest since the beginning of 2010.
I have been using Pinterest since the beginning. Well, it may have been a month or two before I was invited. Yes, invited! Back then, you needed an invite to get on board. Once I discovered the new concept of Pinterest, I couldn't help but fall in love with the design. I love the way it helps me keep track of things that inspire me. I also love the way it helps me connect with other people who have similar interests.
I find that Pinterest is a great way to stay organized. I can keep track of all of the things that I want to do, and I can easily find them again when I need to. I also love that I can share my boards with other people. This way, they can see what I am interested in and we can connect on a deeper level.
Pinterest is also a great way to find new ideas. If I see something that I like, I can save it to my board and come back to it later. I can also follow other people's boards so that I can see what they are pinning. This is a great way to get new ideas and to find new things to try.
Overall, Pinterest is a great platform that helps me stay organized, connected, and inspired.
In the beginning, I found Pinterest confusing.
In the beginning, I found Pinterest confusing. I wasn't sure how to use it or what I could use it for. However, once I started exploring, I quickly realized that Pinterest is an incredibly useful platform. What struck me was that I no longer needed to bookmark everything using my browser. That was a real a-ha moment for me.
Pinterest didn't have clear instructions when they first started. The idea of pop up instructional bubbles wasn't a thing yet. So, learning how to use it was a bit of a learning curve.
The site also wasn't as populated with new content as it is now, and it took awhile to figure out how to add outside content. As it was a newer platform, not many sites had the "pin it now" button. Even now, people are still just beginning to understand the value of adding that to their pages.
