Avoid Self Promotion
Pinterest is designed to curate and share things you love. If there is a photo or project you’re proud of, pin away! However, try not to use Pinterest purely as a tool for self-promotion.
Really?...it's pretty obvious that's what Pinterest is all about, you showing other people what YOU like. Obviously there are those that are going to post there online businesses all over that place, in fact I've seen it. I found this rule VERY funny and ironic. Now I'm seeing in my trends to the right here as I type Pinterest blog posts..one of which is "Feed your creativity and Cultivate your brain" Whoops, that should be "bran" as it's spelled wrong on the other blog title. I guess their "bran" hasn't been cultivated enough yet. Idk it's looks like one big online bookmark source that other people can see to me. I guess it might be a good place for me to put all those recipes that I'll never make but look delicious. Maybe I can learn how to cook my "bran".
