Pinterest

As you will have noted, if you read the previous post on this blog, I recently joined Pinterest. I’ll be focussing on themes that relate to the novel that I’m currently working on – sharing ideas about climate change, sustainability, upcycling and books on those themes. Oh and rabbits too. You can find me here.

When I first joined Pinterest, I looked for interesting organisations and individuals to follow. I was struck by how many conservation charities aren’t on Pinterest. It seems to me that the site offers such wonderful opportunities to share cute pictures of wildlife that these organisations are really missing something by not joining up. This is how WWF do it for example, while a number of environmental campaigning organisations are making good use of the site, such as Greenpeace.

Pinterest is a great way of sharing visuals and through these visuals of driving people to your website (or other websites you find of interest). The downside is that there are issues over copyright on the site.

I’m not going to even attempt a ‘How to’ guide, after all there are plenty of those around (just do an internet search to find them) and I’ve only just joined the site.

What are your thoughts and ideas about Pinterest?

As ever, text in bold contains hyperlinks that take you to other websites where you can find out more.

    I’m also new to Pinterest Juliet, have to admit I’m not quite sure what I’m doing! I’ll look for you! So far I’ve attempted to pin a banana bread recipe 🙂 You make a good point about the lack of conservation groups on there, I hear the Woodland Trust is looking at setting something up. I think you now need a ‘corporate’ account if you’re an organisation which might be the issue. Let you know if anything comes of it
