Are you addicted to Pinterest? is a short post to showcase an image I found on Pinterest a long time ago that had the heading are you addicted to Pinterest. It allowed me to show some Pinterest humor for an image that I really liked. Every now and then it’s nice to step back and take a breather.
Are you addicted to Pinterest?
I was working along just great today working and I just had to share this picture for some comedy relief. Especially for those of us that love Pinterest. It’s a before and after picture of Jack Nicholson that depicts him calm and cool before Pinterest. And then one month later after using Pinterest – hence are you addicted to Pinterest.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Pinterest. It’s one of the reasons that I decided to start blogging. However, with all of the Pinterest algorithms that have been going in and the new focus Pinterest has on Pinterest Idea pins I believe that fewer and fewer people are addicted to Pinterest.
The niche for my blog is Pinterest and I hope that you’ll check out some of my Pinterest posts that I’ve written to promote Pinterest. It’s a great way for you to build traffic to your blog, especially if you don’t want to learn how to optimize your posts for SEO. In that case, you still need to know that you should promote your Pinterest pins with SEO by a multitude of methods.
To see my full assortment of Pinterest pins, please visit my Pinterest account at PinArtwork Blogger – Pins to Start, Grow, or Monetize your blog and Frequently Asked Questions (arranged within the various boards) that pertain to blogging to help new bloggers.
With the recent decline in Pinterest I have to ask myself now are you addicted to Pinterest? The decline is happening because the seasons change, it’s getting late and fall is nearly behind us now, so not as many people are looking for fall pins after the fall season has nearly ended. The algorithm that Pinterest uses has no doubt persuaded people to longer use Pinterest because they were using Pinterest by posting and reposting their pins over and over again and the “new” way of Pinterest with no more duplicating pins led people away from Pinterest that were using it before.
I believe that Pinterest is a great way to promote your blog. On a regular basis I usually have a tendency to pin at least 10 fresh new pins per day, and I make sure to always have at least four pins in my Tailwind Community queue to pin at a moments notice. Usually I have enough pins scheduled out far in advance so that I can pin enough pins to see out for at least one month. Then periodically I’ll scour the 75 Tailwind Communities that I have to look for unique pins.
In the past I’d probably schedule from Tailwind any given pin, now I’m more concerned with trying to have some good pins to build up the number of repins so I’m mainly concentrating on pins to start a blog, grow a blog, monetize your blog, or improve your SEO. The other thing I’m looking for is pins that catch my eye. If they catch my eye they’re more likely to be repinned.
The average number I have in Tailwind and I can’t recollect off of the top of my head what the exact terminology is called but in the Tailwind stats it’s the number to the far right which has been averaging at nearly a constant 16.5% for quite some time so I’d love to be able to hit at least 17% or more.
