Oh Pinterest, I love you. However, it can be such an OVERWHELMING site. You can pin and pin and pin and pin and never do anything about it.
To counteract that, I’ve done a few things:
- Project Central: a board for all the projects I’ve made. I delete the pin where ever else I had it saved, and pin my own project here.
- Recipes I’ve Done: Sometimes I actually cook or bake something I’ve pinned, so I hold myself accountable to actually take some action. I then delete the pin whereever else I had it saved and pin my own version on this board.
- Don’t have too many boards: I have thirty four, which seems like a lot but it’s divided up between holidays, recipes, and life (plus a bunch of group boards with other bloggers). It works for me.
- Don’t pin anything that doesn’t have an original website: what good is it to pin a cute craft that links to a flickr page? you’ll never know how to actually complete the project!
So there you go, that’s how I keep my Pinterest board organized.
