Using Pinterest for Friendly Interactions
To be really honest I joined Pinterest because my friends were all raving about it, I guess you could call it peer pressure?
Then I learned that you can rapidly increase traffic to your blog/website through Pinning so I got a little excited, but still, I wasn't 'feeling it'.
I wanted it to be more interactive, a little like Facebook without all the personal drama and a little like Twitter #chats without the neck breaking speed.
Working from home really isolates the soul and not having colleagues to bounce ideas off makes it hard to remain inspired! So when I was offered a renovation project for a friend I was so excited but had no one to do the 'happy dance' with, then it came to me...
I would create an 'Inspiration Board' on Pinterest and invite like minded friends to contribute. Using the comments box below the image for open discussions to discuss their thoughts behind the image.
Right now I have two contributers, Betty Anne from http://wisteriacleaning.blogspot.com and Charmaine a designer for her family owned company, ShoreBet Contractors.
My invitation is open to join Philadelphia Brownstone Inspiration Board on Pinterest, just put your pinterest name in the comment box below and I will add you in! SEE OUR BOARD HERE!
I would love to see you there!
