Pin it Pinas: Revitalizing Pinterest in the Philippines

8:30 AM


Who hasn't heard of Pinterest? You see something pretty, you see other pretty things related to pretty thing #1, you want to see all the pretty things side by side, you create a Pinterest board BOOM mission accomplished.

At heart, Pinterest is a visual bookmarking tool. But its functionality extends beyond that of its predecessors vi.sualize.us and We Heart It by utilizing boards. Every member is essentially a content curator, now doesn't that make you feel special!

Billions of pins, limitless possibilities

I don't have to tell you how limitless the possibilities are. You have your standard craft/DIY, recipe, and home decor boards. Then you can move on to the specifics. I've made inspiration boards for parties, for travel plans, for scrapbook layouts. I've seen prepper boards and boards dedicated to...elevators.

My best uses for Pinterest

I make the most use out of Pinterest in layout and blog design. My favorite board has to be Blogging Tools and Inspiration, which is kind of my resource dump for blog template inspiration, photo layout composition, and other blog bling.



My most popular board would have to be the (~big surprise) DIY / Crafty. I adore working with paper so there's a lot of that in there, along with some macaroni and ribbon, lol.


I do wish they allowed cross-referencing though. As it stands, if I want a pin on both my "DIY" board and my "Events" board, I have to pin the photo twice.
