Have you heard of pinterest?

Are you wondering what everyone is talking about?

Have you signed up but don’t quite know what to do with it?

Like any power tool, Pinterest can do amazing things, but you have to know how to use it!  That’s where the people at “Dummies” come in!  I love the “dummies books”.  They make everything simple, understandable, and useable.  The new book, “Pinterest for Dummies” is no exception.

“This book provides all the core instructions you need to jump into Pinterest and thrive.”

Picture in your head, a cork board on your wall.  You are leafing through magazines and you see some window treatments you love.  You cut out the picture and pin it to the cork board.  Imagine that you are super-organized and have sections of your cork board.  Maybe one for “Decorating Ideas”, maybe one for “Crafts for the Kids”, and one for “Recipes”.  That’s what pinterest is like, except it’s all in your computer instead of cluttering up your wall!  Remember on your reality cork boards how pictures get covered up, it becomes a mess, and you can’t find anything?  That won’t happen on Pinterest, because it’s organized for you!

Now, one more exciting thing about Pinterest!!  I think it’s actually the most exciting thing… Suppose you don’t subscribe to magazines, don’t have time to leaf through catalogs….  *drumroll* You can look at other people’s corkboards!  You can benefit from their time spent looking for ideas and just jump right to the results.  When you see something you like?  You can pin it to your cork board!  That’s called “re-pinning”.

Do I have your attention?  Pinterest is amazing and the possibilities are endless.  “Pinterest for Dummies” will tell you how to join, create boards, and pin and re-pin. Once you’ve learned the basics, “Pinterest for Dummies” will tell you how to follow other people and have them follow you, integrate pinterest with twitter/facebook/email, and find different and wider uses for pinterest.  When you become proficient, the book also give you tips on self-promotion, company/business use, and power pinners.   Are you a blogger?  Pinterest can be a major source of traffic for your website.

“In January, 2011, Pinterest attracted 11.7 million unique visitors, according to comScore.”  Wow!

    Most want to figure out how to find blogs and other content sources rather than pin poaching from friends.
