Turns out that Pinterest is primarily geared toward women at the moment… or at least it seems that women are the majority of users actively posting on it. So, mostly what you will find there are Pin Boards (photo “likes”) on topics of a more feminine nature.
Basically, the premise of the site is that you can “pin” images from other websites onto a pin board. It’s like the community bulletin board where you would pin lost and found notices or items for sale. But this pin board is where you can pin images of your favorite things that you find all over the web. You can share your pin board with others who can like it on Facebook or re-pin your images on their own pin boards.
So why would anyone want to spend their valuable time doing this?
Good question. Here’s how I suggest using it.
Build your own online Dream Board and share it with your organization. If you are in an MLM then get your downline to create their dream boards so they can access, look at, be inspired by and share their hopes and dreams. Use it for positive thinking, visualization, inspiration, or a reminder of what’s important in your life and your future.
Sharing your dreams or at least your taste and desire for the finer things in life may give others inspiration, too. If you have a support structure who is actively involved in helping you achieve greater success then they may even help bring images from your pin board into your experience. Think Law of Attraction.
Give it a shot. Besides… it’s fun to dream BIG.
