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:
Helen is a mum to two, and social media consultant and website editor. Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts now works with big family brands to help them promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. Helen also helps other organisations with their social media and blogging strategies, including working part-time as a community manager with Truprint. She can often be found hanging about on social media, and trying to avoid stepping on the Lego her kids keep leaving lying around.
