Pinterest a New Way to Gather Inspiration

I love to find free ways to promote my young business; I spend quite a bit of time researching and investigating ways to do this. I am not yet at a stage where I can invest lots of money into advertising myself, so I look for as many free ways to become viral online and get myself known. During my daily search I stumbled upon Pinterest and now, I am addicted. I originally signed up to pinterest as I thought it would be another good way to get some exposure to my business, but what I found was it’s a fantastic way for me to collect inspiration in an eco-friendly way.

As a designer I love to create mood boards of inspiration to help my creativity flow, this can actually be quite expensive in ink and paper etc. But with pinterest I can collect images and make my own virtual boards, it’s fantastic. I can then blog and share my inspiration, it’s great and I love it. I’ve only made a few boards so far and I can’t wait to keep creating!!

For any designers and Artists out there who haven’t discovered Pinterest I highly recommend it, but be warned once you start pinning it’s hard to stop.
