To Pin or Not To Pin? That is the question!

Calling all 'pinners'

I'm usually a Social Media early adopter, but for some reason I haven't yet checked out Pinterest. I don't know why, it seems like a good fit for me, as I love 'vision boards'. Vision boards are great tools to help make your dreams manifest into your reality, and I have often been told that Pinterest is like an online vision board. A visual 'bookmarks'/'favorites' that you can share with friends. (and you know I LOVE to share!)

A little something for everyone I've been told, Foodies can pin recipes, Fashionistas can pin dream outfits, but yet somehow I haven't felt this sense of urgency to take a peek.

Since my butterflies are definitely social media savvy, I thought I'd put the question to YOU: So butterflies, 'To Pin or Not To Pin' that is the question!

If you are a blogger, I'd love for you to weigh in on the question also! Do you find the traffic benefits are worth it? Do you allow people to 'pin' your blog photos, why or why not?

If you think I should check it out, include an invite with your recommendation! =)

So Butterfly, What's Your Pinterest?

FTC Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post. I am not a pinterest member. But I am totally curious as to whether or not it's worth it! :)


  1. Hi Tracy,

    Hope you are having a wonderful day! Stopped by from Wordless Wed, but then this post caught my eye, so I flitted over here to leave a comment!

    I was hesitant to join Pinterest at first - mainly due to copyright issues (which are currently receiving a lot of publicity) but I joined a few months ago and after I figured out the ins and outs of it - I LOVE it! As a creative blogger, I find it SO inspiring to visit and I LOVE creating my own boards!

    I will be reviewing and offering a giveaway within the next week on a recently released Pinterest e-book that you might want to check out - I have yet to read it but it probably will be perfect for you if you are interested in learning more about what Pinterest can do for you and your blog before deciding how to proceed.

    And I would be happy to send you an invitation if you decide you would like to join - just drop me an e-mail or leave a note on my blog with your e-mail and I can send it to you!

    Have a fabulous week!

    Create With Joy

  2. @The Paper Princess - Thank you so much for your reply, and I will email you for the invitation! Let me know when your Pinterest e-book giveaway launches, sounds like an interesting read!

    ♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

  3. Great post! Still haven't gotten on Pinterest. This was very helpful!

  4. @Itzel - Good to know I'm not the only one who hasn't jumped on that bandwagon yet! :-)

    If you do decide to join, please let me know what you think of it!

    ♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
