I have been a Pinterest user for years. Actually, more like a Pinterest hoarder!

When I began blogging, I had done so much reading on what I needed to do. After focusing on 10 things at once, I decided to back off and put the majority of my energy into one platform. I chose Pinterest. Having read another 857 articles about what I needed to be doing on that platform, I decided to stop reading and start doing.

I received a free month of Tailwind and thought, “why not?”Β 

The first week, I did nothing but stare at the blank screen with a feeling of overwhelm which I had become quite used to over the last few months (Blogging can be crazy overwhelming, am I right?!). Finally, I dove in and started scheduling pins.

The default gave me 3-4 scheduled pins per day. Along with the scheduled pins, I began to manually pin about 20 pins today (which wasn’t much more than I had typically been pinning). I went with the 80/20 rule. 80% others, 20% my own.

I would pin from my blog to my main Nau & Forever Blog Posts board, then from there I would pin to other appropriate boards of my own as well as group boards.

Now, to some people, this may not be a lot, but to me, I was super pumped!

I took a dip at the end of March (like many bloggers) but as you can see, things are moving right back up.

Should you put all your eggs into the Pinterest basket? Absolutely not! BUT, from my experience, you should totally be utilizing this platform. The majority of my traffic comes from Pinterest.

I have also noticed a few of my pins showing up in the top feed of Pinterest. That totally warranted an impromptu happy dance while my husband was, like, “um…okay.”

These results are my personal results, but Tailwind publishes the Typical Results of Tailwind for Pinterest Users so you can see what the average growth rate looks like for all of their members.Β
