As a lover of great photography, Pinterest was never likely to escape my attention for long, and once on my radar it was inevitable I’d become hooked. It is a remarkably intuitive platform to use, simply create a few boards and then pin your favourite images to them. For this reason the image bookmarking site has become one of the fastest growing social media platforms on the internet.
There are hundreds of stunning and amazing images, a place where top photographers showcase their talent. The good news doesn’t stop there however, it is also a cool site for fashion or interior designers to display their creativity too. Which is why it’s a particularly popular platform with women.
There are numerous categories to choose from and almost everybody will find a few of interest with plenty of stunning, unusual or interesting images to stir the imagination. Regardless of motivation, whether in need of inspiration for your next holiday or decorating tips for a dull room, it can probably be found with a little enjoyable browsing.
It can become extremely addictive however and before long I found that more than a dozen boards had been created and many more community boards added to my profile. The truth is I never tire of browsing the various categories, finding images which inspire, astound or simply please me. Sharing them is always a pleasure and thankfully others seem to agree as they are often shared by many others.
Some appreciation is of course always welcome and a couple of these boards became quite popular, even appearing in a number of posts featuring favourite boards such as Cool Images in 42 awesome and creative Pinterest boards by Candice Walsh or Pure Portraits in 21 Ways Travel Addicts Can Use Pinterest on the Hostelbookers website.
Earlier this year however I was honoured to receive an email inviting me to become featured as a blogger in the Pinterest Pin It Forward UK campaign. Some of the leading lights in UK blogging are participating so it was impossible to resist. Their boards include some great images and they are well worth a peek if anybody is in need of some inspiration.
As the campaign name suggests it is about pinning if forward therefore I’d like to draw your attention to Jennifer Cooper and her great site TravelBllgr. This the benefit of this campaign, it raises awareness those doing cool things in blogging and social media. I was unaware of Jennifer’s site until now but after a few minutes browsing her enjoyable posts I was hooked. She hopefully will now take up the challenge and pin it forward too. Therefore look out for her post to find out which other great blogger she will introduce.
If you haven’t already discovered how much fun Pinterest is, put the kettle on, settle down and join me there. I’m sure you won’t regret it but allow plenty of time as you’ll probably be browsing for hours.
