When I first started a blog, I did not anticipate the required marketing and advertising development I would need to share my writing with the world. Coming up with ideas for topics and writing/editing blog posts flowed naturally, but I experienced a learning curve when it came to utilizing all that social media had to offer.

When I needed to share a blog post, Facebook was where I began, because I was most familiar with this platform. My audience was already built, and I spent most of my online time on their site. Later, I discovered a love for Instagram–creating images and quote graphics to inspire readers was a delight. I still use both of these platforms regularly, but all along I was missing out on a huge audience over on Pinterest.
The imagery, inspiration, and creativity was booming on Pinterest. I enjoyed spending hours scrolling and pinning, but I wasn’t aware how valuable Pinterest would be in promoting and growing my blog.
As I became more accustomed to this platform, I noticed the pins I was sharing weren’t just beautiful images, but they were coming from blog websites, and these sites used Pinterest to market their writing! Many bloggers had a massive Pinterest following, the followers were converting to readers, and soon they would become subscribers!
Pinners are looking for actionable steps or inspiration when they come to Pinterest, and I want my writing to give visitors exactly that. It takes dedicated work to start a Pinterest page for your blog. I still have a way to go with my personal blog’s Pinterest site, but The Daily Positive team has taught me valuable steps. Through the way we have built our site’s Pinterest page, I have learned a lot about maximizing this platform.
