3 categories to follow for Pinterest newbies

For beginners, starting a new social media website can be exciting and confusing. If you’re new to Pinterest, which is a social media website established in 2010, it may take a bit of getting used to navigating through it. The site, which is divided into board categories (a board is where your pin is attached), offers a wealth of information if you can organize yourself a bit. These are some of the categories you can start with.


This is a category you can’t go wrong with. Whether you want to share your own recipe with the world or stay on top of the latest trends in dishes around the world, this category could provide the right kind of platform for you. All you need to find are the top influencers in this category. They could be anyone from a home baker to a celebrity chef (and a little Google research could help you with that), and follow their advice. If you want to share your own recipes, or anything else related to food, just pin the image to your board and provide a link that takes the visitor to your website or blog. It’s a great way to improve traffic, isn’t it?


Some of the best Pinterest photos can be found on boards in this category. Travelers from all over the world post landscapes ranging from snow-capped peaks, through sandy beaches, to rocky canyons. Everything is under this package. These could give you great ideas for your next travel destinations and, when you feel comfortable, provide a platform for you to share your photography talents with other visitors. However, make sure you are not violating copyright. Your photograph, your right and vice versa.


Centuries ago, someone wise mentioned that health is wealth. While browsing the boards in this category may not help you accumulate wealth, these boards can prove beneficial for those who are mindful of having a healthy mind and body. Follow these charts for tips on restricted diets, weight gain or loss issues, fitness equipment, chronic disease prevention, and more. If you have the experience or the information, you can post tables of diets, exercise options, and other health recommendations. One key thing to keep in mind when browsing this category is to always make sure the sources are legitimate. You don’t want to follow something not scientifically verified and cause more harm than good.

Here are some of the categories that could help you get started with this highly informative social networking site, and help you connect with experts and hobbyists alike in the fields of your choice. Get going and open a Pinterest account now. The most important thing is to have fun while you are there.
