Pinterest is revolutionizing blogging and is the nearest online experience to flicking casually through magazines.
Blaine, Washington State (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Blogging may still be at the core of social media, but the latest craze that has stolen most bloggers' attention is Pinterest. The good news for everyone is that Blogging and Pinterest are the perfect couple and support each other.
5MinutesForMom.com has long been a leading resource for the mom blogger community and sees Pinterest as the perfect platform for moms to share ideas and inspiration about everything from parenting and homeschooling resources to recipes and fitness tips.
Bloggers are reporting that Pinterest is quickly becoming one of their top traffic sources for their blogs with the visitors being much more engaged than those from bookmarking sites such as StumbleUpon or Reddit.
To help bloggers get started on their new "pinning" adventures, 5MinutesForMom.com launched a new weekly Pinterest link carnival called Pin It Friday and invites bloggers to share a couple links to their favorite pins from the week.
They also created a Pinterest Resource Page where they share helpful advice to get started, links to other sites and a link up list for pinners to find each other.
Susan Carraretto, one of the twin sister co-founders of 5MinutesForMom.com explains, "Pinterest is revolutionizing blogging and is the nearest online experience to flicking casually through magazines. It brings archives back to life. It breaks down cliques and levels the playing field. It will reignite your passion for online community and information sharing."
Pinterest is an "online pinboard to organize and share things you love" created in March 2010. It found a loyal audience amongst crafters and DIY experts who loved to share their photos and creativity. But in recent months, the user base has seen hockey stick growth as bloggers and other social media enthusiasts embrace it as a tool to share content and expand influence.
Bloggers have invested hugely in creating their blogs' presence, and, as many mom bloggers have already discovered, embracing Pinterest will enhance their daily social media experience.
