What an announcement, right? Welcome back to 2010 my friends! I may as well write a post about just discovering hand sanitizer! I’ve said it before that I’m not a trendsetter, and joining Pinterest is no exception.
Now, I may be a little slow on the uptake but once I “take?” I’m all over it. You just wait – I will be pinning and creating boards and, um…errr, whatever the hell else you do out there, on the only speed I know – fast! Fortunately, I’m a quick study and this is what I’ve learned so far:
1. Tamara, Janine, The Dose Girls and Michelle are really big deals out there. Damn ladies! When there’s a comma involved with the number of people who follow you, that’s like another dimension of super social-mediadom that I know nothing about. Teach me your ways sensei.
2. You need to make the cover of your boards visually appealing. Eye candy. I get it.
3. You can organize and categorize everything! There’s 357 boards for what essentially is all FITNESS – workouts, activity, health, get your sweat on, 30/20/10/5 minute workouts – and only one beautifully universal word for COCKTAILS. Oh Pinterest you are a mysterious temptress!
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
Obviously I’m still working on setting up boards and pinning however, before I get too carried away, I need to know what not to do! I mean, that is way more important – don’t you think? Remember all those people who announced illicit affairs or their money laundering activity all over FB thinking it was a “private message?” Right.
What I really need is help with etiquette. I actually need help with that in all facets of my life but let’s focus here people! First of all please FOLLOW ME…and I will follow back. Second, tell me everything you need to know (or maybe just one thing) about pinning, re-pinning, commenting, boards – whatever silent rules there are to the Pinterest gang – I need to know!
Any and all Pinterest related advice is welcome! Is there one thing you wish you didn’t do on Pinterest?
