The other day, I spent a few hours reorganizing my Pinterest boards. I tried to create boards that were both aesthetically pleasing for visitors and actually useful to me. A few changes I’ve made:

Combined wishlists – I used to make a new wishlist for every season. While it was fun to look at and see how my style had developed over time, I realized that the 6 wishlists jamming up my boards were probably not that interesting to outsiders. 

Created a board for my blog pictures – I know a lot of bloggers receive tons of traffic from Pinterest. I receive precisely 0 hits from Pinterest because I never pin my own stuff! I am resolving to pin my own pictures more often in hopes that it will create a little additional traffic for my blog. 

Split out huge boards – I made separate boards for “hair” and “beauty”, as well as “cocktails” and “food.” I had A LOT of stuff in those combined boards, and I couldn’t ever find that recipes or hair inspiration that I wanted! So awkward when you’re at the hair dresser or liquor store scrolling through your phone…

Created a “fitness” board – Wishful thinking!

Here’s a few of my favorite pins lately…

Marble nails; Tropical prints via Around Lucia
Pink dinosaur sweatshirt via Etsy; Bee tattoo via Remain Simple

Palm Springs home via Studio DIY; Martial Raysee Neon Art via Galerie de France

Anyhow, do have looksy at my revamped Pinterest! My handle is @ColleenWelsch. Let me know yours in the comments! I need more people to follow.

  1. I really need to pin my own stuff more often haha. I've started a DIY board for when I move house and need to do some affordable house décor, but other than that I tend to browse more than pin. Love all of these ones you've picked 🙂

  4. Now that you mention it, I should probably do the same. I know my food + drink board must be teeming with copious pins.


  5. Coincidently I was just thinking about overhauling my social media accounts… they play such a big role in blogging and traffic but it's always hard for me to decide whether or not to completely separate them from my personal ones.
    I love what you've done with your Pinterest though, very organized and co-hesive…

  6. Your style on Pinterest seems really tight, good going! I would also suggest making your own branded board covers to tie it all together even more. =]
