Create Your Boards
After you’ve joined Pinterest, you need to create a few boards. Look at this like your bookmarks for your web browser. For planning your event, you may have boards titled:
- hair styles
You’ll know what works best for your personal organization style, just be sure to use board topics that make sense to you and what celebration you’re planning for.
Follow the Leader
In addition to following your friends and family, follow blogs or websites that are of interest to you. You’ll see their inspiration when you first login making it easier to “re-pin” your favorites. And bear in mind, you don’t have to follow every board by that user. Follow just the boards that bring you inspiration. Want to branch out a little more? Try doing a keyword search for things such as “wedding” or “baby shower” and follow individual users to draw inspiration from.
If you find something in Pinterest you like, re-pin it! Just click on the image and on the upper left of that image, click on “re-pin”
Be sure to enter a detailed description (if not already provided) for easier faster and searching when you want to come back to that pin later.
Browsing a website and you notice something cool? Add the “pin it” button to your browser toolbar to pin directly from that website.
