How Pinterest helps me organize

This is just a an advertising for Pinterest that I am not paid for.

What is Pinterest

Wikipedia says: Pinterest is an American image sharing and social media service designed to enable saving and discovery of information (specifically “ideas”[5]) on the World Wide Web using images and, on a smaller scale, animated GIFs and videos,[6] in the form of pinboards.[7] The site was created by Ben SilbermannPaul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp and had over 400 million monthly active users as of August 2020.[8] It is operated by Pinterest, Inc., based in San Francisco.

How I use Pinterest

I type the thing I look for and save them on boards to find them later. If you look at my Pinterest acount you will see that I have a lot of boards. I like to keep everything in separate so it is easy for me to find it later. When I want to organize anything I open Pinterest and look at the boards about organization. There I can almost always find something that I can use.

Why I love using Pinterest

I love organizing thing and loved it when it is organized. Everything is clear and easy to find.

On Pinterest I have a few board that help me find new ways to organize my home. I think Pinterest is ideal because I can save these ideas.

Then when I need to organize anything I open one of the board below to help me with my problem. May blogger like me post new ways that they organize there home.

If you see other people getting there home nice and organized I t really gets me motivated to do the same. And with other people I mean real people not nice profesionally styled houses in magazines and tv but houses that you and me live in. Where people do it as a hobby or in the evening when they are off work. Where it needs to be practical and simple to apply.

Here you can find simple ways to organize things without a lot of effort.

But you can also make things yourself to organize your home and improve your life this way.

Other uses for Pinterest

In my last blogpost I showed how I organized my desk drawer which I also got inspired for by Pinterest.

I also uses it to promote this blog. The change is quite big that you found my blog via Pinterest. Pinterest is ideal to promote blog about home improvement. Because many women want to imporve there home simple and effective and start that journey by looking on Pinterest at what other women do.

Many women like me are on Pinterest promoting there blog with nice images that they put together with adobe photoshop and graphic that they made on Illustrator. Just like me. They write a nice title on it and post it on Pinterest.

Best surprise DIY

suprise idea pillow. Very easy and amazing pillow case
I needed to make a surprise gift for a friend of mine. As everyone does at such a moment. I looked on the internet for inspiration. I search Pinterest. I found a pillow made out of an old button up shirt.
This was a great idea.
I would make a pillow out of an old shirt. Not just a any kind a pillow that would look like a scouts uniform.
I would fill it up with paper and the presents I bought for her.
Then I just needed to start making it.
I found an old button up shirt that was white. And I needed it to be a light brown. So I let it soak in coffee for a while.
Now my shirt was the right colour.
I put it on the table a drew a big square on it. The top needed to be the shoulders. I cut the square out and sew it right sides together.

Then I needed the logo’s on the pockets and I also wanted her name on it.
So I printed the logo’s and her name out. Found an old piece of see trough plastic table cloth. Cut out the logo so it formed a stencil for the logo’s.
I used regular paint to put the logo’s on the blouse.
I stuffed the pillow with old newspaper and her presents.
She absolutely loved it.

An infographic example

Infographic are great to learn some design skills but they are a bit tricky to make.

Why an infographic

An infographic is great for SEO but google does not see the text in the image. So you need to accompany it with some. If you post this on Pinterest a lot of people will see and click on it. People will link to a relevant infographic which will draw more traffic to your website.

infographics are great to tell a story in an easy to understand way. You will need relevant data in the infographic and good, easy to understand visuals. The first thing people look at is the visuals. So make them outstanding.
