Pin It Forward UK Pinterest Campaign

Friday, 24th May, 2013

I have been on Pinterest for a while now, which has been really successful in the U.S. and is one of the most favoured social media sites for fashion bloggers, because of the ease of sharing pictures. Recently it has launched in the UK, and I am proud to say that Michael 84 is part of the launch! 🙂 But what exactly is it and why should you use it?

It differs from Facebook and Twitter, the other two big social media and sharing sites because this is more aimed at sharing images, pictures or other types of art. The idea is you can create collections of things you love, called boards (think mood board or more appropriately, pin board) and share them with the world. You can be creative and share your own photos or images, or share what you have found on the world wide web. Follow your friends and favourite boards you find, and re-pin cool things you find on others pin boards on your own.

You can create as many boards as you want, so you can organise your favourite things really easily; Add a fashion board for all your fashion related photos, add a gadgets board for cool gadgets, and whatever else takes your fancy.

Pin your amazing finds on the go!

There is of course an iPhone app, which means you can save your pictures and pin them on your Pinterest board on the go, so if you are on a holiday it’s the perfect way to share your holiday snaps with your friends.

If you are already on Pinterest please follow me here. If you are not then why not register and I will follow you, you can register for Pinterest here.

Get Some Inspiration From Other’s Boards

If you are looking for some inspiration and want to know some other boards to follow on Pinterest then you could try looking at Jenny’s bake board here. You will find over 200 pins with some mouth watering cakes, biscuits and other baked goodness.

See you on Pinterest 😉
