I don’t know about you but if you know me, you know that I obsess over my Pinterest account! Pinterest is mostly known as a place for DIY’s and makeup tutorials. But not everyone realises that you can have fun while pinning pretty pictures that you love! I’ve had Pinterest for a couple of years now but it’s not until this past year that I really got obsessed. I just love all the inspiration that I get from it. I actually got the idea to start a blog from Pinterest and all its amazing picture and ideas on it! I hope this post inspires you to take action of your Pinterest account and make it beautiful.
Choosing What Boards You Want:
If your into beauty of course you’re going to do a beauty board! If you like home decoration (I think everyone does) you’re going to do a home decoration board. You literally think of anything that you like such as shoes, food, makeup, perfume, jewellery etc. and make a board all about it! Just remember that if your planning on making a Pinterest account just to look nice, think about the amount of pictures you will be able to put on your board and what they will look like. I make sure that my public boards are pretty and then if I want to search for recipes or DIYs (the ugly photos), I make a private board that no one else can see. It’s a win – win situation!
Naming Your Boards:
Naming your board is probably the easiest thing to do. I just used a thesaurus for my names. For example; I had natural beauty and I decided to call it Au Naturãl. It’s really easy. I also did all my board names in CAPITAL LETTERS. Some people decide to space them out l i k e t h i s or others decided to put them in capital letters and space it out L I K E T H I S.
Choosing Your Description:
I found this the hardest part. You have to try to be unique about what you put in your description. I liked to keep my sweet and simple. For example; when I was doing Au Naturãl, I said ‘everyone has natural beauty’. Bit corny I know, but it was sweet and simple. Exactly what I wanted. And I think that is the most important part. Make sure you are keeping yourself all throughout you Pinterest. If you don’t like the colour yellow then don’t pin it! Everyone knows what they like! That’s the fun part of Pinterest which is deciding what to pin.
Choosing Your Pictures:
This is by far the easiest, funnest and definitely the addicting part of Pinterest. I chose a colour scheme which was light and bright with some bold colours. Other people I follow have a tan colour scheme whereas others have a dark scheme. Of course you don’t have to have a colour scheme if you don’t want it. Some people just do colour schemes in a board such as blush. Be comfortable with what you’re doing and love it! I pin photos from other pinners but a lot of the time I upload my own. I find my pictures on multiple websites. Some of them include Tumblr, we heart it and of course Google!
I really hope if you don’t already have pinterest or have it but don’t currently use it, try these tips! It will help you so much. Be careful though or else you might get addicted like me and all the other 100 million pinners! Of course I want you to do whatever you like. I promise you though, if you start cleaning up your pinterest account, you will get addicted! Let me know if you have a pinterest account! If so comment what it is and I will have a little peek! If you want an idea of what I’m talking about, here is my pinterest.
