A few months ago, when I first started getting into blogging, I thought Pinterest was a thing of the past. I figured no one really used it any more, and that it was overrun with bloggers just trying to get noticed.
However, after reading about how so many bloggers have had success using Pinterest, I decided to give it a try. At first, I had no luck. My blog wasn’t getting any traffic from Pinterest. Then I stumbled upon a blog post talking about Pinterest group boards and was like WHAT?! Group Boards?! You mean I can pin my blog to a board that already has thousands of followers? OKAY!
So I joined one. Yes, just one. And according to Pinterest analytics, the pins I pinned to this group board got the highest engagement out of all of my boards. Consequently, I decided to join more group boards.
Finding these “group boards” wasn’t easy. In fact, it was actually really difficult finding group boards based on a specific niche, who also happened to be accepting new contributors. To help make it easy for the rest of the bloggers out there trying to boost their blog traffic, I have put together 10 of my favorite group boards that are easy to join, have engaged followers, and are currently accepting contributors.
