Recently, I have found myself falling in love with Pinterest all over again. Some might say that scrolling mindlessly through your feed is a waste of time, but I always find that it helps me stay inspired in the best way. This week, I spent a good amount of time on Pinterest and gathered tons of ideas for my room decor, business rebrand, and future blog posts. Yay!
In addition to just being a delightful source of colorful inspiration, Pinterest is also a valuable tool in growing one’s blog or business. Did you know that, aside from search engines, the majority of our traffic comes from Pinterest? Last year, one of our posts was pinned and repinned thousands of times, resulting in a huge boost in our pageviews and some sweet affiliate earnings from the post itself. Ever since then, I’ve enjoyed reading about different ways to utilize Pinterest to grow our blog! Here are some of my favorite recent posts on the topic.
