Of great Pinterest? Mistakes? I made a few…

I am just beginning to start to love Pinterest. Yes, I expect I am late to the party and many of you are already Pinterest addicts!

What is Pinterest?

In case you have no idea what I am talking about, Pinterest contains a cornucopia of advice and information, like a lifestyle search engine but with fantastic images to draw you in and inspire you. There are recipes, crafts, DIY and decorating ideas, advice on buying, selling and making money, gardening ideas, illustrated exercise sequences, travel ideas, items for sale and more.

I have been fighting with making my own pins to bring more people to the blog. It’s not as easy as it looks! Still, I expect practice makes perfect.  I have signed up with PicMonkey and Canva as these are both very helpful for designing the pins. I also watched a couple of You Tube videos – there really is nothing you can’t learn on there!

You might begin to see my efforts on my posts. If you do, feel free to hit the pin it button to share! Sadly, I don’t have much time to mess around with this stuff. I wish I did as I enjoy it! I am very much a total beginner.

If you want to see what I have been up to so far, including the pins I have made and those I saved because they were interesting, head along to Pinterest and search for Shoestring Cottage. I could do with some followers! If you feature your own pins on  Pinterest let me know and I will follow you back. if you are a seasoned expert on Pinterest, feel free to share your advice in the comments. I need all the help I can get!

Here is one I did yesterday. I think it looks OK but there is room for improvement for sure.

It is another beautiful day today here in Essex. It’s too lovely to be sitting here on the laptop, so I will be off out on a walk somewhere, doing a bit of gardening or possibly both! Have a super Sunday!

  1. Not something I can help with, sorry Jane. It is good to do something you enjoy though and always very satisfying to master a new skill.
    I have deliberately avoided Pinterest along with Twitter, Messenger and anything else other than Facebook which I joined mainly to keep up with what my children are up to, and to look at the photos they take on family days out. This, along with the blogs I like to look at and time for my own blog, is enough for me. I spend an hour or so online, mostly in the evening, and anything else eats into my writing time and I never have enough of that! You will know this feeling what with a full time job, your family and your garden.
    I can see that Pinterest offers some amazing ideas from the pins that my daughter showed me when planning her wedding last year. Good luck with it.
