Discussion: Pinterest and Blogging

I joined Pinterest just a few months ago in part because I noticed how many referrals I was getting from it.  (Not an insane amount, but a couple every day do add up over time.)  So I started creating various boards of varying levels of relevance to my blog and waited.  I was pleasantly surprised when my referrals from Pinterest went up, particularly from the cover images of books I reviewed that I later pinned.

So what I want to know now is this: If you’re a blogger and/or author, do you use Pinterest?  Has it driven any traffic to your blog?  Why or why not?

      It’s definitely worth it to give it a go. And if it doesn’t work out, you don’t have to keep it up. I think the key to getting referrals from Pinterest is to pin images from your own blog so the images link back to your blog. Then when people click on the images they can use the “Visit Site” button to go to your blog.
