Ultimate Blog Tips- Pinterest Board

Way back in 2012, I joined Pinterest after hearing it was the Next Big Thing for bloggers. I used it for about a week, quickly got bored and completely gave up on it, only returning for Halloween and Christmas inspiration at the end of each year. Then something crazy happened: It sucked me in. 

I'm not entirely sure how it happened but I became obsessed with curating the most perfect Pinterest board of all time which, not to blow my own trumpet or anything, I think I've achieved.

My Blog Tips board is an ever-evolving collection of all the best advice posts I've seen around the web featuring topics as varied as inspiration, organisation, monetisation and a whole load of other -ations. Every single pin has been verified, if you like, by my reading the post and only including it in my board if it is informative, useful and original. Any posts featuring a list of common-sense or often-featured tips have not been included. 

Let me tell you, it has taken hours upon hours to individually read through every post and make sure it was useful enough to be included. You can still find over 150 pins on there (which is an ever-increasing number) so, to make it easier for you, I've created a little best of guide divided into handy little categories.
