In hopes of achieving those goals, I had my IT Department set up a Pinterest account.
And by IT Department, I mean that I, in all my technologically challenged glory, would try to figure out what Pinterest was and how it worked.
I am now an active member in good standing of the Pinterest Community, but I am still severely confused as to what to do, how to do it, and how to achieve a high score on the site without any of the cheat codes.
So, I was hoping that I could turn to you, Modern Philosophers, for a little help.
What am I doing?
How do I do it better?
Can you please follow me?
I promise that I will follow back anyone who follows me on the site. I’ve sought out fellow bloggers in the follower list of my blogger friends I was able to locate. While doing this was very time consuming, it also made me feel extremely stalkery (which I know isn’t a word, so feel free to pin some items on proper grammar to my Pinterest board).
I believe I can be found on the site at:
I’m not sure if what I just cut and pasted is at all useful, or will even show up on this blog post, but at this point, I’m just pinning stuff up on the blog and hoping it sticks.
The one thing I do know about Pinterest is that it requires the use of push pins. As a result, I went to Walmart this morning and bought a box of 1,000 pins. They were only 99 cents. I don’t know how they do it, and I don’t want to know to be perfectly honest.
I did try to have Melissa help me because My Sweet Irish Girlfriend is much more social media savvy than I.
However, Irish Pinterest is just a bunch of photos of U2, Leprechauns, rugby players, and Shamrocks pinned to dart boards in pubs with darts. So, she couldn’t help much.
Speaking of U2, their classic song “I Will Follow” comes to mind…
While I’m still mostly clueless about Pinterest…
…I did enjoy setting up a few boards to highlight some of my favorite blog posts. I just don’t know if that’s what I should be doing. So help. Please.
I do intend to share your blog posts on Pinterest now, just like I share them on Twitter, Modern Philosophers. I’m all about spreading the Blog Love.
I set up a board called Cool Blog Posts, and that’s where your stuff is going. Again, not sure if that’s right, but it feels good.
Speaking of Blog Love, Modern Philosophers, I wanted to thank my friend Suzie of Suzie81Speaks.com for honoring me as the first recipient of her Top Bloggers to Follow in 2016 accolade.
She is an amazing blogger, who not only writes well, but also goes out of her way to help other bloggers and spread the Blog Love.
If you don’t follow her blog, you need to do so.
Thank you, Suzie!
Thanks in advance, Modern Philosophers, for any advice, input, or follows you’d like to give this guy, who is still wearing a toga in a social media driven world.
Have you tried expanding you blog’s reach on social media? What platforms do you find are the most helpful? Do you need to borrow any push pins?
