Pinterested!

It’s probably more than a year since I first joined Pinterest and for most of that time I hardly visited my couple of boards more than once every three or four months. You see in the interest of building an author platform I joined a few different social media sites, but inevitably I didn’t have the time to keep up or really understand how some of these sites could help me. Anyway, last week I was reading a blog post (and I’m really sorry I can’t for the life of me remember who’s it was!) and the author writing the post commented on how useful Pinterest was for conveying her ideas. I visited her boards and found lots of images she had collected that she felt reflected the characters and places in her books.

Pinterest had been one of those sites I hadn’t really understood when I joined, hence why I hardly ever visited it. But now I could see some potential, I could pin images that I relate to my stories, people who look like my characters, and places that appear in my books.

And that’s how it started!

Now I have got carried away and have started adding more boards full of other things I love, such as dragons

And archery

Archers

I am still very new to all this and compared to others I haven’t really even got started yet, but I think I’ve found a new favourite place to be and who knows by pinning images perhaps I might draw attention to myself and my books!
