I love Pinterest because it is an effective means of communicating Visual Information. I have replaced my 1000 page Syllabus with Pinterest Boards. Imagine all the trees that will be saved in this conversion process!
The “percentage of social media-driven revenue that comes from Pinterest has grown from 1 percent in the second quarter of 2011 to 17 percent in the second quarter of 2012.” Check out my Pinterest Boards by clicking on the “Pinterest” button on my websites.
Create your boards at www.pinterest.com. It is a good idea to create a board with all of the blog posts that you have written this semester. Use a picture for your cover. Just add a pin it button to your posts and send them to your board.
Pinterest a social catalog service or virtual pinboard where you can categorize and share the things that you love. You can create a collection of pins for your board. I have added a widget to this side bar of this site with a link to the “Boards” that I have created. I also added a plug-in to the website so that I can pin lessons to my boards.
As a blogger, create pins or boards with a theme that is relevant to your content. Add a Pinterest share button to your site for each post.
