Pinterest? Huh? (plus a giveaway!)

There are so many social networking sites out there now. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn are the ones I am most familiar with.

At least until Facebook changes its format again….

Facebook is where I make sure my family and friends can catch up on my family’s latest doings and pictures.

Twitter is where I rant to and with people I have never met.

LinkedIn is where I pretend to be a grown up.

Have you heard of Pinterest? Pinterest is a newcomer on the social media scene, but it is causing quite a stir.


It confuses me. I’m not really sure what I am supposed to be doing.

Luckily I was given the opportunity to review (and give away!) a copy of Kelby Carr’s new book – Pinterest For Dummies

And goodness knows I need all the help I can get.

Pinterest For Dummies, will help new users get started creating their Pinterest boards, finding people to follow, and pinning bookmarks. The book will cover: 

• What Pinterest is about and why you should use it

• Getting your account set up

• Setting up boards and getting organized

• Pinning, repinning and giving credit where credit is due

• Using hashtags, liking pins, commenting, finding people to follow, checking out Tastemakers, sharing pins with your other social networks, and using search

This book, like all For Dummies books, is written in a logical, easy to follow format. Each step, from requesting a Pinterest invite, registering, setting privacy settings, to the highlight of Pinterest….PINNING!

(Want an invite? Hit me up, I have a few left.)

(I also have a Handy Dandy Pinterest button up….you can follow me!)

Hey y’all! I’m pinning!!

Pinterest For Dummies quickly and concisely answered every question I had about Pinterest. It explained what, how and why.

No, I’m not going to tell you! Buy the book!

Or you could win one right here. 😉

    The boards confused the heck out of me at first. I’d created an account thinking I had to in order to view someone else’s post but didn’t use Pinterest for at least 6 months. When I finally went back to give it a try, I didn’t understand why you would subscribe to their boards. It wasn’t until I went Pinterest surfing that I figured out what the boards were and why people had so many. I thought it was just a place for those on Twitter or Facebook to post photos.
