Increasing Interest In Pinterest

Photo taken by me - Jack Skellington from the movie, A Nightmare Before Christmas.

I am getting a big surge of activity on my Pinterest pages from adding my links with photos from articles on here. On the old Mylot we only had links to fire our work onto Twitter & Facebook, but the Pinterest link is getting me noticed more there too. I do like Pinterest as many photos I see there help inspire my writings too. Anyone else here also on Pinterest? As a random photo here is someone in the audience at a burlesque cabaret show dressed as Jack Skellington from the movie, A Nightmare Before Christmas. Arthur Chappell

Oh, I can spend hours on Pinterest. But it's great for cataloging things and gathering information.

I don't really know what Pinterest is - is it primarily for pictures?

Yes you can pin your own photos, images from online or from the website itself. You can create board and share them with others. It can be food, gardening, clothes, etc. You can also do a dreamcast board for your novels, if you're a writer, too. It's free to sign up and join.

@KristenH Thank you Kristen - so it's mainly to give your work exposure?

I have looked several time at Pinterest and I cannot really appreciate that site, but I am sure it's pretty popular.

i am a long time user of Pinterest. unfortunately i could no longer access my old account. i do not completely know why. i posted a discussion about how disappointed i was (still am). i created a new account but havent started going through clipboards yet. im still saddened about the old one.

@MGjhaud sorry you lost access to your previous version - if you remember who followed you you might find a link to it among their list of pages they are following

I'm on Pinterest, but I uninstalled the app from my phone because it was taking up too much memory.

I have not yet tried Pinterest, but I am being encouraged to get out there and try the site. I'm just recently dipping my feet back into the pond here at myLot. Thanks for the review. I doubt I'll join it today, but from what you have said, and the opinion of my friend and former consultant, I can see it will be necessary when I am ready to dive backward off the high dive, so to speak.

I'm sure some of our members are on Pinterest. There are probably dozens in the comments which I haven't read yet!

I drop by Pinterest now and then, but have never invested much time in it, TBH. It keeps pestering me to download the app onto my phone, I keep ignoring it.

I would imagine you are Arthur as your photos fit a special niche for people. You will get tons of hits I am sure.

I'm on Pinterest, too. Just not as often as I was last year. Cool Arthur.
