Ooh hey! We survived Black Friday folks! All those sales (are they really worth getting trampled over?), new gadgets and consumerism galore. Ugh. I recently went on a Pinterest spree and I realized something: how many times do we get on Pinterest and just pin aimlessly? Do we even enjoy it? Do the people we follow just mirror each other or do they actually post original content?
I love Pinterest, there's just no denying it. However, I'm working on posting more of my own photos on my blog, and therefore putting "original" content on Pinterest as well. But, because I know that I'm not the only individual in the world, I love to pin things from other people as well. I love to pin off my Feedly account. I love pinning off my favorite news blogs, lifestyle and fashion ideas too. And, more than that? I love following someone with unique content on Pinterest - a combination of articles, photos and design elements are my favorite elements in finding a new pinner.
I've collected a few of my most recent favorites. I used to operate on the idea that "more is more" and wouldn't follow people if they didn't have more than say 5,000 pins. How wrong I was! Some of my favorite feeds are those which have a less is more approach and carefully curate their boards. I've included a few recent favorites, with the link to their pin, board and the original content all included (sourcing is a pet peeve).
Do you have any Pinterest favorites you'd like to pass on? Share the inspiration!
