Pinterest is taking over the Internet! If you haven’t already, it’s time to jump on the bandwagon. For those who haven’t gotten the scoop, Pinterest is a social network that allows you to visually share, curate and collect your inspirations and categorize into “boards” where other users can either “re-pin” or “follow.” Pinterest is not only a great way to create your own mood-boards so that no idea is forgotten, it’s also a superb way to discover new interests and like-minded people!

Here are 7 ways to get the most out of Pinterest:

#1  It’s a community so don’t be snobby; “like” a pin you see.

You don’t always have to re-pin but comment when you can.

#2 Follow the boards you like to assure your front page feed is all things you want to see.

#3 Categorize your boards and create themes so it’s organized and focused.

#4 Recipes! Search for food ideas and watch what great ideas come up

#5 Use it as an actual vision board for goals you want to accomplish.

It can be your ultimate source of inspiration!

#6 Drive traffic to your site or blog.

If you specialize in recipes, accessories, fashion or Internet memes, Pin it!

#7 Share your boards! Have a board that you and your friends, family or coworkers can pin to.

Great way to keep a group or team organized.

Pinterest is a lifestyle so start pinning now! Don’t forget to follow us for daily inspirations and see what we love!
