What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A few years ago, I jumped into Pinterest knowing nothing about it, only knowing that all my cool blogger friends were obsessed with the website.
Nine months later, I had a million followers.
So I decided to write a book to share my secrets with you. They’re not really secrets—it’s all available on blogs, and by watching other Pinners. But this book saves you the trouble of scouring and searching.
You see, I’m just like you, really: parent, blogger, spouse, friend, homeowner, entrepreneur, life-lover…I get how busy life can be. You don’t need to read a hundred blog posts on using Pinterest—you want it in one place. So here you go.
Pinterest adds to my life. I can curate all my favorite things, ideas and images I want to save for later. Pinterest gives me an easy way to do this—all online. I really hope you’ll come to love it as much as I do.
Yes, I use Pinterest because I love it. That’s my secret sauce—that plus some luck and the tips I’m going to share with you in this book.
Maybe you’re not sure if Pinterest is for you. Maybe you have it on your list of things to do very soon. Here’s a lesson from my oldest daughter, the one who hates new experiences: Last summer, she reluctantly tried a suspended pulley cable zip-line at camp. I wasn’t there to worry about what would happen if she refused to do it, or to wonder how to motivate her to try. It turns out I didn’t need to be.
“Guess what, Mom?” she enthused at pick-up time. “I was pretty scared to do the zip-line today. We had to climb up this telephone pole that was so high. Did you see how high? And I don’t like heights. But I couldn’t just stand there all day. I had to jump off because other kids were waiting. I just had to do it. And it turned out to be really fun!”
So, if you haven’t tried Pinterest, take it from my daughter: just do it. You don’t have to be any more ready than you are now. Just take a step. Then you can see if it’s right for you.
