Thanks so much to Capture by Lucy for introducing me in #PinItForwardUK. Bloggers across the UK have been asked to talk about why they use Pinterest. So here very much goes….
I have been using Pinterest alot for quite a while now, and not just because there are some jolly nice pictures on there, oh no. I go there for advice.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some great products, wonderful designs, and lots of lovely things on their I wish I could make and afford. But the best thing about Pinterest is the content it leads you to.
The search engine lets you explore that content easily, and very visually, which is great for those of us that don’t have too much time. The pins can show you whether or not that content is worth spending a bit more time on, and visiting directly.
For example, we talk about potty training on this blog a lot, and it seems like we are not the only ones. It’s a time when parents everywhere hold their breathe and hope that there little ones will take to it well. Otherwise, the washing machine is on permanently, and its time to reach for the wine.
Because Potty Training is such a parenting war zone, Pinterest has a lot of opinions on it. There is a wealth of excellent information on Pinterest available at the click of a button.
So, just like me, if you have any burning parenting questions, whether on potty training or something else, why not find out what Pinterest has to offer? You would do worse than to come and check out the collaborative parenting tips board we run on KiddyCharts, which you can find here:
I'm a mum, a part-time analyst at NelsonHall, and the owner of KiddyCharts, not necessarily in that order, and typically all at once...
I have two fantabulus children, Stuntboy and Little Miss Chatterbox, who are the inspiration for my business. They continue to be the driving force of much of what we do in our lives, often when we aren't actually expecting them to be.
My long-suffering husband, Brad (ahem), puts up with my rather untidy nature, and haphazard house-keeping (even more ahem) skills.
This blog covers my diet coke-induced musings on being a working mum, covering stuff like parenting, reward charts, social media, mummy guilt, which I have a lot of it seems, and anything else that seems relevant or interesting after a shed load of caffeine.
I am not trying to be an expert on anything on here, its all about sharing some experiences with a few other people. Hopefully you will find them helpful, interesting, and occasionally they'll bring a knowing smile to your face.
So stay for a while, and get to know me, my family and KiddyCharts. Hope you like us all.
