Social Media Swap- Pinterest!

Oh Dog! Today we’re talking Pinterest. Now don’t you DARE tell me you don’t use Pinterest!

Pinterest is one of the hottest social media sites on the Internet- especially among women.

I’d love to hear your tips on how you use your Pinterest account.

I use mine to connect with friends. I learn about their interests while sharing my own. I have boards highlighting some animal rescue organizations, among other things.

I make it a point to visit regularly and “like” some of the posts others have pinned to their boards. Sometimes I repin items to my own boards.

If you’re using Pinterest to promote your blog, follow the 80/20 Rule: no more than 20% self-promotion.

On your blog page, consider adding a Pin It button for blog posts to make it easier for people to pin your post to their boards. Also, add a “follow me” button. Don’t know how? Your blog hosting should have directions. For those with a free WordPress blog, you can get directions here.

If you have a Pinterest page, I’d love to follow you! Just tell me how to find you.

  1. I’m simply a hoarder so Pinterest is the perfect oasis for me! Hmm, just wish I could hoard TIME so I can never leave my computer. *sigh*
    You go Rumpy!

  2. You’re very good at using your social media Rumpy! I usually use Pinterest for home and Bubba ideas, but happy to expand my portfolio of pinboards! You’ll find me as princessmaryjo 🙂

  3. I haven’t got my Pinterest account yet but one of my twitter friends has it and I’ve looked at her page, which is beautiful! and she did pin one of my pics on her page! I didn’t know that Pinterest was so popular among women…need to let my mom know and start it! 🙂

  4. I think I’ve got Pinterest account?? Can’t really remember 😦 But then I have a twitter account and keep forgetting to use it! Austin says I should really get a grip! *sigh*

  5. Me and Charlie don’t use pinterest! *Runs and hides somewhere dark*!

    Happy Monday! take care

  6. I use it for many things, from relaxing to dreaming to promoting my blog (way less than 20% off my pins are my own stuff though). When I’m grumpy, I head to the “humor” section and pin stuff that makes me laugh. I also use it for inspiration for blog posts. I suppose i’m a bit of a Pinterest addict! You can find me at

  7. I pin everything from food to home decor, to quotes to fashion…have to say….I spend waaaaaaaaaaay more time promoting OTHERS on Pinterest than I do myself…….sad thing? Many don’t return the favor…….

  8. I’m a little embarrassed to say I might be the only person in the Western Hemisphere (and maybe both hemispheres) who doesn’t know what Printerest is.

  9. Rumpy thanks to you we now tweet. This week we will learn how to pin. You should teach a class on this stuff. Think of how many cookies you would get 🙂

  10. I don’t use Pinterest much but when I do, I have only one rule for myself: No pinning or re-pinning of images that are not linked to the original source. It’s how I pay respect to the people who created those images and how I want other users to respect my own copyright. Sadly, it is hard to keep up with ‘image theft’ and my efforts are probably just a drop on the bucket, but at least I do my part. 🙂

  11. I had a Pinterest account but never set up my own page. I know, I know–I should really try to do that again! My daughter-in-law just seems to love Pinterest.

  12. No Pinterest here, no Facebook, no Twitter – sheesh, the Momster is really strict. We are lucky we have a blog.

  13. Oh Wolf! Elk bones and chewed rabbits! How do I dare say this Rumpy?….I don’t have a pininterest account!! In fact it was only recently I discovered what on Europa one was! HoooOOOOOOOOOWWWWWwwwwwLLLLLLLLL! Don’t beat me up Rumpy! I’m only a little Icewolf! Honest! I don’t even have an Alpha Male to protect me!!! lol 😉

  14. Hi Rumpy!

    PS me Pinned yous as one of my favorite Animal Spirits!

  15. Hey Rumpy, Jet here.
    Mom has a pinterest thingie, but has yet to delve into it. She said her other social media stuff already takes up a bunch of time… I’ll work on her…

  16. I don’t rumps … I logged in and can’t remember what my sign in was and … well … I been on the road so it will be a bit longer fore I make that new trip into social media swap land. 😀

  17. Such a great idea! I’m late swinging by, but I’m wantmorepuppies if you want to connect. 🙂

  18. I choose not to jump into every social media fad that comes along. Never did MySpace. Don’t do Twitter. Barely do Facebook. Have not interest right now in Pinterest. I like my WordPress blog just fine. Lets me do what I want to do.
