Use Pinterest for blogging ideas
Pinterest is definitely a great place to inspire blogging, photography and online writing. It is informative, inspirational, friendly, organized and a wonderful tool for anyone in the blogging industry.
Writers are forever looking for new ideas, and Pinterest is a steady spring of information one can use as a jumping off point for researching and completing new content. A friend who was recently hired to teach, and I went out to lunch the other day and we scoured the Pinterest pages for ideas for lesson plans. We came up with so many that she had her lesson plans drawn up in a matter of minutes.
Pinterest helps Bloggers organize their work and thoughts
Pinterest allows you to create boards with different topics and organize your content by “pinning” links and photos to your especially designated boards.
If you’ve been writing for a while you know how hard it is to keep content organized. With Pinterest you sort them out so you can find anything quickly and easily for quick reference. It is an ideal site for getting your content to the reader.
In addition, a Pinterest board can give you several ideas with one image. Just pin your image, leave it on your designated subject board and return to be inspired when your other ideas have dried up.
Pinterest can increase your earnings
A friend of mine signed up for Pinterest and started pinning her work onto various boards. Within the space of a month she was stunned by the increase in traffic. Her earnings at one site doubled within this period. She now has new followers on her blogs – traffic which has converted from the Pinterest site.
