Revising Pinterest Boards
I like being able to share my boards because sharing and collaborating are fun. Pinterest is also a great way to discover wonderful blogs. My pin boards are mostly professional in nature but like all social networking sites, using caution is called for. I've learned the hard way that just because someone is following you doesn't mean you want to follow them.
I've recently spent several hours, yes, hours reorganizing my pin boards and I'm still not done. I deleted pins, added pins, deleted likes, and renamed boards. I wanted my boards to reflect me, my interests, and my transition back to speech therapy. I "unfollowed" several pinners and not because I didn't enjoy their boards, I just felt I needed to be more focused. For me, Pinterest, like blogging, is about connecting with like-minded people and sharing for the sake of sharing. And also like blogging, it takes time and thought and a desire to give credit where credit is due.
