Blog Every Day In May: Getting 15,000 New Pinterest Followers!!

Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.

I recently started spending time on Pinterest and have been interested in how things work.  I haven't had much time to spend the last couple of weeks, but I did just realize how great it is.  I wondered how it all worked, so I was looking up articles about what followers do.  Does that mean that they see everything you post?  I still haven't figured it all out, but I am going to do more research when things slow down a little bit.

I read this article and found it very interesting.  Social Media Today has an article about getting 15,000 new followers in a short period of time and trying to figure out why it happened.  

I find it interesting how some of the social media works.  I still don't know why he increased his following so quickly and what the importance of increasing your following is.  Is it just a status symbol?

Are you on Pinterest?  Have you had an unexpected increase in followers like this?


  1. I'm on Pinterest but I get like one new follower every couple of Pinterest doesn't really strike me as a place where one would want that many followers, but maybe that's just me.

  2. Followers anywhere; it's a status symbol for some. If you are trying to make money at blogging, it helps. blah blah blah. :)

  3. If they follow all your boards, then they are able to see everything that you post as it is shared to their wall. That's if they are checking daily. Otherwise, there's a good chance they might miss it. If they follow one board, then they will see what you posted on that board. I have lots of people who follow only boards that have nothing to do with my blog, but I have bloggers who care about social networking and they follow all my boards and I follow back. You can use # next to key words like on Twitter and Google+ to help people find your pins who are searching in the search box.
