The Pinterest Project: How we’re using Pinterest for SCBWI MD/DE/WV’s As The Eraser Burns!

For the longest time, I didn’t fully understand what Pinterest was about. But then someone told me it’s just a fancy way to bookmark things off the internet. Voila! Concept instantly understood! I’ve since learned that Pinterest is also a fantastic way to drive traffic to your blog, although I’ve yet to fully harvest its potential for my own personal blog.

It is starting to drive traffic to my running blog, Joyful Miles, though, which got me to thinking: Why not see if creating a Pinterest page for As The Eraser Burns will help get more eyes on our posts, both current ones and those from the past? And hey, what if it can also somehow help promote blogs of our regional members? Hence, my Pinterest Project was born. So here’s the plan:

The Pinterest Project: How We're Using Pinterest for As The Eraser Burns

Step One: Create a Pinterest Page for SCBWI MD/DE/WV

Done! You can check it out here and follow if you’re also on Pinterest!

Step Two: Create a board for As The Eraser Burns Blog Posts

Done! I also created several other boards and made covers for them so they all look pretty. I love pretty Pinterest pages.

Step Three: Add Pinnable Images to previous ATEB posts

Yikes, this one is going to take some time, but having eye-catching images at the correct size, (735 x 1102 verticle images get the most re-pins,) will make a huge difference!

Step Four: Pin!

I rather look forward to this step and plan on pinning my little heart out while being stuck on the stationary bike this evening. (Can’t run. Darn foot injury.)

Step Four: Create a collaboration board with regional members!

This is where you come in! If you have a Pinterest account set up for your personal blog, please send me either your username or email address and I will send you an invation to join the Regional Members Blog board. Then whenever you post a craft, writing, or illustrating type of post, feel free to pin!

If you are a PAL member, then we also have a Regional Members Books board that I can add you to! Then you will be able to upload a link to your book. Use laurabowerslit@gmail.com to contact me.

Happy writing and drawing!
