My Pinterest Experiment

Last week I attended Peter Jacobi's, "Life in the Spotlight," workshop through the Highlights Foundation.

Alison Myers spoke with us about using social media. She advises using Twitter and Pinterest to connect with teachers and librarians.

I have been blogging, using Facebook, and Twitter for a while now, but Pinterest is new to me. Yesterday, I set up a couple of Pinterest boards for my book, The Ballad of Jessie Pearl.

You can view my boards here:

While I had fun making the boards, I'm still unsure how teachers and librarians will find them or exactly how to connect with these educators using Pinterest. I'm hoping by blogging and tweeting about my dilemma some knowledgeable writers will enlighten me.

Do you use Pinterest for networking with teachers and librarians? If so, how does it work for you?


  1. I'm on Pinterest and I get the most interest in my bookish boards. I'm not sure how many of my followers are librarians or teachers, though.

  2. Thanks, Medeia. I'll look for your boards on Pinterest.
