I love Pinterest and I could waste so.much.time. on it, so I have to limit myself to
playing working on it a few minutes each day.
I have a Pinterest strategy with pinning, boards, organizing, and marketing.
I love Pinterest for recipes, homeschool ideas, and holiday themes.
I started out pinning what I liked – like a virtual bulletin board.
It was fun, addictive, and a huge time waster. I loved every second. And then, the comparison hit and I felt like a loser, a failure. The craft and food porn I viewed on Pinterest made me feel more and more less than. I realized I could never compete.
So I took a Pinterest break and reevaluated how this could be used for my blogging and personal life better.
I very strictly limit myself to a few minutes each day pinning pins on Pinterest. I scan through the homepage and then I search for hashtags to repin that are relevant. I love the “send a pin” feature and my husband and daughter and friends often send me pins that they think I’ll like. And I use that feature a lot to send pins I find that make me think of others.
