If you don’t know already, my name is Kelsey and I am responsible for a lot of our social media action! A lot of people hear the word “social media” and kind of cringe… what IS social media? Honestly, I couldn’t give you a great textbook definition but to me social media is a way for people to connect and share the things that they love. Pinterest is one of my favorite social media sites, because it allows you to express yourself more freely and there is no shortage of breathtakingly beautiful photos and ideas to gather inspiration from.
A few months back, I wrote a blog highlighting some basic inspiration sites… and here is the definition I gave for Pinterest:
“Pinterest is a way to “collect and organize the things you love.” Pinterest is great because no matter what it is that you are interested in, there is a board for it. A Pinterest board is a ‘set’ (like an album) of photos with a common topic. For example, say I am interested in looking up fashion for mature women, I can go to Pinterest, search ‘fashion for women over 40,’ and I can browse through a variety of different boards on the topic. Many of which have links to websites where you can actually purchase the the items that are listed, or just re-pin onto your OWN board. You can follow your friends and family, or your favorite companies and celebrities—and make as many boards as you would like.”
Here are some of the Pinterest pages that I think are great:
