Pinterest for Dummies (Giveaway)

I'll admit it, I am massively addicted to Pinterest, the site that lets you create virtual pinboards to share inspiration across your social networks. Many of my friends and family are similarly afflicted, including my husband, who probably spends even more time than I do on the site. He's an artist, so collecting visual inspiration is technically part of his job. Why is everyone else so Pinterest-crazy? Well, aside from its clean visual presentation and ease of use, it's a ton of fun. Many people use it to hoard recipes or ideas for home remodeling projects. As a blogger, it's a terrific way to find people with common interests and to share my posts. Pinterest is quickly becoming a go-to search platform for tutorials and shopping, popular with consumers and marketers alike. So how can you optimize Pinterest for your personal use?

Kelby Carr is a friend of mine and she is also the founder and CEO of Type-A Parent and the Type-A Parent Conference. She recently published Pinterest For Dummies, which addresses many of these issues. Her book is organized to be a helpful reference for everyone from total Pinterest novices, who have not yet requested or received an invitation to join the site, to established Pinners who are looking for ways to expand their skill set and learn some new tips and tricks to use. I learned quite a few!

Enter to win a copy! 

Look for a more business-oriented title from Kelby, Pinterest Marketing For Dummies, due out later this summer.

In accordance to the FTC Guidelines and the WOMMA Code of Ethics, I am disclosing that I received a copy of the book to facilitate this review and the giveaway copy is also being provided. As usual, all opinions are my own. Especially the good ones!

  1. Hmm, I'd like to learn how to NOT be a Dummy at Pinterest, but I also really want to see how it can be valuable and not just a fun time suck.
