Back then people seemed to have an issue with those that shared their own blog posts. I had given it a try, but just like Twitter it took a little while for me to warm up to it. I am still not addicted, not by any means. However, I definitely see the value in Pinterest. I have created boards and I happily pin.
People use Pinterest for different reasons. Most use it as a place to compile and save content that they are interested in. This is many, many different things. It is a great way to find ideas for fashion, recipes, crafts, wedding ideas, and DIY projects. However, it has also become a very valuable way to share your blog content. Pinterest is a top referrer for many blog owners. So, when we view Pinterest as a content creator, we see it a bit differently.
