Make it a point to be a friend on Pinterest and watch your blog grow as a result!
Here’s how it works…
I’ll give you a list of Pinterest assignments each week, one per day. I’ll even throw in a bonus for when you’re feeling extra peppy.
Schedule five minutes per day to dedicate to each assignment and checkity check them off your list as you go.
Let’s get started! Oh yeah… and please follow me on Pinterest while you’re at it.
This week’s task is to be a friend on Pinterest.
