I went through and cleaned up all of my boards and turned my pinning time into a thoughtful activity, arranged by a color palette where each photo pinned somehow goes with the photo next to it. In being a little more honest with myself I gave my old pinning habits the finger and I couldn't be happier! Now when I see my boards, everything makes sense. I choose items I truly love and everything is much more authentic. I no longer sell pins to sponsors because I started to feel like I was selling myself out. Don't get me wrong, if you include Pinterest as a marketing tool for your sponsors there are no judgements here, its just not for me!
No longer gathering anything & everything I find all day long actually takes a bit longer as things are carefully sourced and selected, but I love how its all looking and am proud of the new direction I decided to go. I also wanted to be able to remember some of the finds that really stuck out to me more than just adding them to a board, so this new feature Carefully Curated will share just a few things I'm loving via my pinterest account. I hope you enjoy my finds and follow along!
How do you pin?
