pinterest how to use it & how to love it

I’ve mentioned before how much I love Pinterest.  My fancy new trick on how to clean hard water stains came from Pinterest.

pinterest

It’s honestly a site I spend a lot of time using to find ideas for everything from cleaning tips to fashion trends.  It’s basically a visual bookmarking of everything awesome on the internet, and I’m completely addicted.

So, how do you navigate Pinterest?  Well, it’s super easy and I’m here to help.

how to use pinterest

You guys totally overwhelmed me with your interest. I thought I’d have like 2 dozen comments.  I’m trying to catch up on invitations now, and when I get caught up, I’ll re-open the comments.  Thank you!

  1. First of all, you need an invitation.  No problem.  If you don’t have one and you want in on the love, let me know and I’ll invite you. 
  2. Create a board.  Or seven.  I happen to have 26.  No, I don’t have a problem, why do you ask?
  3. Follow people.  You can follow people using your Twitter or Facebook account, or just follow random people who seem to have really good taste.  I’ve actually found a handful of really awesome blogs I didn’t know existed just by following their style boards on Pinterest.  That’s what I call a win-win situation.
  4. Pin.  Pin, pin, pin away.
  5. Use good pinning manners.  By this I mean don’t abuse it.  It’s cool to submit your own stuff to Pinterest, that’s the name of the game.  Just don’t do it too often, and be sure that for every one time you pin your own stuff, you pin 20 other things.  At least.  It’s not really so much about self-promotion as it is about discovering and bookmarking a whole bunch of really cool stuff.
  6. Like any other social media space, be nice.  Nice people win.

Do you love Pinterst?  Do you use it as much as I do?  I’ve honestly never found a bookmarking site I use as regularly as Pinterest.  I love that there’s a social aspect to it {I love the people!}, and I love how visual it is {I’m a visual learner}.  But the thing I love most of all is how much I’m actually using the tips I’m pinning.  I’m getting new ideas and inspiration every single day that I’m actually incorporating into my life.  I love that.

How about you?  Follow me on Pinterest: petit_elefant

Updated: if you want an invite, leave your email address in the comments and I’ll add you.  But I can’t invite you to Pinterest without an email address.

  1. Emily :

    I LOVE pinterest! The only thing I can’t figure out is how to make an account and not have to sign in with twitter or facebook.

    • Allison :

      Hmmm. I haven’t tried doing that, since I’m always trying to link up with people I know. Have you emailed their help people to find out? I don’t think it’s possible because it’s a social media tool. But maybe I’m wrong?

      • Clisty :

        Their help desk is very efficient.

      • Allison :

        Good to hear Clisty, I don’t doubt it for a minute!

    • Ana Dally :

      I would love an invite- ohsimplylovingyou.blogspot.com

  2. Monica N :

    I love pinterest and at the moment have 4 tabs of pages up to browse through {I may have a problem}. Love #5, I hate it when I visit a page and its basically that person’s blog. Not all images need to be everywhere.

    • Allison :

      Monica, I DO have a problem! The Pinterest app is my saving grace in the carpool lane though…

      And yes, non-stop self promotion is ugly no matter where it is.

  3. laura :

    Allison, I’m ready to take the Pinterst plunge! I’d love an invitation. Thanks so much for this post!

    • Allison :

      Send me your email Laura and I’ll add you!

  4. heather :

    Just put my name in for an invite yesterday! Does it help to have someone invite you?
    Can’t wait to join!

    • Allison :

      I have no idea! Give me your email and I’ll add you, maybe it will speed the process up?

  5. Yvonne A. :

    Ok.. I just checked pinterest out.. oh my! I love it.. I want in!!! Can you please send me an invite?? Thanks! I showed one of my coworkers, and she is in love as well!

    • Allison :

      Yvonne, I have to warn you, it’s completely addictive. Send me your email and we’ll see if we can’t get you pinning asap.

      • Yvonne A. :

        I can tell it is going to be an addiction!!! Thanks! y.acuna@att.net

  6. Melissa :

    Hi, I’d love an invite….since you’re offering! Can’t wait to see what all the buzz is about…

    • Allison :

      Email please…

  7. Jessica :

    I’d love an invite too – thanks for the offer!

    • Allison :

      Send me your email. Or better yet, leave it here in the comments and I’ll do it.

      • cindy :

        Pls Add Thanks So Much

  8. Kelsey :

    I’ve been hearing about pinterest for a while now, and at first I was uncertain. But now?… I want in! I’d love an invite! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Allison :

      I was completely uncertain at first, it just seemed like one more thing but now I can’t get enough! Email me your addy and I’ll get you an invite.

  9. Celeste :

    Hey since you asked…. I’d love an invite. Apparently people I actually know are too busy pinning to follow through with their promises to invite me. Lame. Thanks!

    • Allison :

      You will be too once you get there, I promise.

      Leave your email address here and I’ll get to it.

    • Allison :

      I’m a little bit of an obsessive pinner. It’s kind of a problem.

  10. Mandi :

    I need an invite too! I keep requesting one — but receive nothing in my email from them. I feel like I can’t get past step 1!

    • Allison :

      Mandi, I know I have your email address, but will you leave it here for me to add you?

  11. Katelyn :

    I guess I have no more excuses! I will have to use this rather than my bookmark files :)

    • Allison :

      Katelyn, it’s all I use anymore. And I really and truly use it like crazy.

  12. Mrs Q :

    Wow, I’d love an invite! Not that I really have time for it, but it sure looks like fun! Thanks!

    • Allison :

      None of us really do but we make time for it anyway. Leave your email and I’ll get to it.

  13. Suzi Q :

    Can I get an invite? Please and thank you! :)
    My email is goro2686@yahoo.com

  14. Audrey :

    Looking forward to creating some vision boards with it! But I need an invite! Audreystaylor@gmail.com

  15. Leah :

    I also just put in for an invite on their website today. If you inviting me could get me in sooner that would be cool. The email I got from them was that I was on a waiting list. This website is amazingly awesome. I can’t wait to start pinning.

    • Allison :

      Gimme an addy and I’ll get you an invite!

    I would love an invite to Pinterest! (email details above). Thanks. I can see it’ll be addictive already…

  22. Beth @ Remarkably Domestic :

    I love Pinterest, too, but I haven’t been maximizing its potential like you do! I mostly use it for items of visual interest, and sometimes for crochet patterns or crafts I’d like to try. But I haven’t seen any tutorials or tips there… I’m going to search a little more and follow some more people. I’m not really sure how to *find* people to follow…

    Thanks for the insights!

  23. nicola bester :

    I would LOVE an invite?! Have tried a few times to request one from Pinterest but nothing happened? Please invite me!

  24. Bri :

    Hey I just found pinterest today and it is amazing, I found so many great things in the hour-ish I perused it so I can’t wait to pin things. I am on the waiting list so if you could invite me that would be great. had to put my email on here to leave a comment, do you still want me to type it in the comment?

  25. Beth @ Remarkably Domestic :

    Hmm. Ok, I’d like to follow you on Pinterest, but I can’t find you. How do I find you to follow?

  26. Claudia :

    I really think I’m infected. I would like an Invitation, too.

  58. Melissa :

    hi – I LOVE Pinterest! I’ve been a member for awhile & love scrolling through the great ideas. But, I can’t find you to follow you!!! What’s up with that?

    • Allison :

      I’m pinning under the name petit_elefant.

  59. Ampersand Design :

    I have been a Pinterest addict for nearly a year now. I absolutely love it as is evidenced by my currently 100 boards!! My biggest pet peeves though are pins without proper credits and those that aren’t linked properly back to the source. Also for those who asked about unlinking their Facebook or twitter accounts, my account isn’t linked. I’m pretty sure you just need to go into edit profile and unlink your account from there. I use an email address to sign in to Pinterest.

    • Allison :

      Thanks so much for the follow up, I really appreciate that clarification!

  60. Lydia :

    Pleeeeeaaaaaase can I have an invite – desperate to get pinning!

  61. Ampersand Design :

    Sorry, for unlinking Facebook and twitter, I should have said:
    Click on the drop down menu under your name (top right hand side of page)
    Go to preferences
    There should then be the option to unlink your twitter or Facebook account.

    HTH.

    PS Have already mentally reorganised my bookcases (and there are many!) so that I can do the colour organisation – LOVE IT!!
