How to use Pinterest to find blog post ideas

I brainstorm a lot (more than i post!) and i have a bunch of ideas for blog posts.Brainstorming can really help a blogger figure out all the blog posts you can really get into writing and that will get viewers to your blog.

One way i love to help my brainstorming is to use pinterest. If you have a business account on pinterest you can look at your analytics and find out which of your boards have the most followers and impressions.

If you don’t have a business account you can still find this out by going to your boards and clicking on the board to find out how many followers you have for that board. Another hint is that usually the higher amount of pins the higher number of followers you will have on the board.

Once you have those top 5 boards write them down as headings and write what kind of pins you pin to that board. under this Write your blog ideas before compiling them on your editorial list or blog ideas list. This is the time NOT to get distracted by all your pretty pins!

  1. hehehe, not getting distracted by pretty pins is gonna be monumentally difficult, but pinterest is definitely awesome for blogging inspiration! :]

  2. So difficult! I may have been distracted a number of times while writing this blog post!

  3. I love Pinterest! The #1 way I use it is for brainstorming and getting inspiration for creative projects and blogging. I love their secret boards, too. That way your followers don't know what you will blog about before it goes live! 🙂

  4. Love this post. I really need to spend more time looking at my analytics. I am working on my 2015 Editorial calendar right now so this is right on time. Thank you.
