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!
