Pinterest, Blogging and Baby Boomers is it Booming?

Is Pinterest a booming social media site? Are baby boomers using Pinterest? Are baby boomer bloggers using  Pinterest? How are baby boomers and baby boomer bloggers using it? Well I have decided to explore these questions with this series of posts. Isn’t that what we baby boomers do so well?

A recent article on a marketing blog shows some of the traffic stats on Pinterest and predict that it only going to go higher. Read the article on Marketing Proofs published today!

Personally, I have decided to go deeper into my study of Pinterest.  Although I started an account and my hubby has to, I am exploring how others set up their boards and the kinds of things they pin. (Be sure to let us know if you are on Pinterest so we can follow.)

Ignite an excellent social media site in January provided a nice demographic breakdown of those pinning in Pinterest. They noted that many baby  boomers are, like others, pinning home improvement, craft and travel ideas. Read Ignite’s post.

From my preliminary work on Pinterest I am captivated by how many baby boomer and blogging boards on Pinterest. As a result I am not only having fun but fun learning. So, in the next couple of postings I will share some of the boards and pins I have found that are by or about baby boomers on Pinterest.

Meanwhile, those of you who are thinking about jumping into the sea of Pinterest but need to know the basics. I have a book I am currently reading that I am finding super helpful. If any  of you have other teaching aids and e-books on Pinterest please leave them in the comments.

Now if you want to get deeper into the marketing aspects you might want to read this one the book listed below by the same author. Actually, I am going to order it after I finish writing this post.

    Yep. On there!

    I’m BoomerBazaar on Pinterest and since my own website is boomer oriented, I’m keeping my own Pinterest boards related to the boomers.

    Pinterest is a fun way to see–literally–what others find important and how they connect to others!
