I’m PinterestingPosted: March 20, 2013 | Author: Cassandra Page | Filed under: On social media | Tags: pinterest, social-media |4 Comments
That’s like being interesting, only with art.
I’ve read a few blog posts on social media for writers, and everyone kept mentioning Pinterest. I’d always thought that was a site for scrapbooking DIY projects and recipes, so I was scratching my head as to what writers use it for. So I posted on Twitter, and a few of my tweeps filled me in.
One good summary of it, and what made me decide to get a Pinterest account, is Nicole Evelina’s blog post on the subject.
So anyway, I’ve set up my account here, if you wanted to check it out or follow me or whatever it is people do on Pinterest. If you leave your account names in the comments I’ll follow you back. Once I figure out how. :p
Thanks for the tips, Cassandra. It’s on my list to start a few boards as well, so I appreciate the timely and helpful post!
Pinterest is sooo addicting. I do love it most for DIY, but also for posting inspiration for WIPs and Books I want to read/have read.
Also, for those interested, there’s a massively long list/comment thread of (mostly YA) authors on Pinterest here:
I just joined Pinterest too. It’s still a bit of a mystery to me, but fellow YA author, Jack Croxall, has set up an awesome board of YA covers. You should check it out. x
Buahahaha- I’m gonna follow CP on Pinterest, oh yeah, oh yeah.
