I kinda left ya hanging there, didn’t I?
I announced a giveaway and promised the winner would be named on Friday.
And then Friday came and went.
No winner announced.
Nothing posted on Simply Writeous.

Pinterest Board Covers
Did you have any idea that there are people out there who make money pinning on Pinterest? Well, there are. And apparently some of them make quite a lot doing so. I don’t quite understand all the science behind it, but some folks are making it work. Big time!
This writing journey that I am on has brought with it lots of opportunity to learn. It’s through this learning that I stumbled upon the “make money pinning” realization. I’m not setting out to make money pinning, though I think it’s such a creative and awesome idea. BUT one thing I took notice of while doing some research is how beautifully organized some of these Pinterest accounts are. The trick seems to be having uniform Pinterest board covers.
Always a sucker for organization and combining another skill I’m working to learn (simple graphic design) I set out to bring some organization to parts of my Pinterest account as well.
The process was super time consuming; probably because I’m such an amateur. Starting first with sourcing photos. Then working to format them in a way that brought some uniformity. This is what I ended up with:
So…what do you think??
If you don’t already, I’d like to extend an invitation for you to follow me on Pinterest (quick access by clicking here). I pin the majority of my blog articles (because it’s so easy to organize and reference from there) as well as other stuff that piques my interest. Also, if you are one of these rare gems that makes a fortune pinning, I think everyone would be interested in knowing who you are and how you got started — rock our worlds by leaving details in the comments below!
