Pointers for Pinterest Pinners

Pinterest is undoubtedly creative, and poised to surpass Twitter hands-down! So it makes great sense to learn all you can about Pinterest, and how to use this fun and colorful social networking site to win success for your brand and beloved home business.

It truly is amazing that women are five times more likely to use Pinterest than men. I am not surprised about that either. It is said that 25% of women who use the Internet would rather use Pinterest. I am talking 36 million who pin and re pin photos of whatever they like and manages to catch their creative imagination and fancy.

Repinly, the first site to dedicate itself full-time to tracking Pinterest activity, offers some interesting facts and pointers about "pinners" and what they like to pin.

First of all, the most popular category on Pinterest, based on the number of pins pinned is "Food and Drink," which accounts for 11% of pins on the site. The most popular pin of all time is a recipe for garlicky cheese bread, if you can believe that!

The second most popular Pinterest category is "DIY and Crafts," which has about 10 % of all pins. The all-time favorite pin shows how to create a piece of art by melting crayons with a hair dryer to make yet another rainbow.
Even though most pinners re pin photos that have already been posted to the site,  20 % of pinners find their fanciful pictures on other sites. While the most popular place to find images is Google, it accounts for only 5 % of pins. Etsy, the online shop for handcrafted items, ranks second at 2 % and photos uploaded by pinners themselves ranks a close third.

What are some of your favorite Pinterest categories and what kinds of things do you love to pin on Pinterest?
I hope these Pinterest pointers have helped you as you join in the fun as a happy Pinterest Pinner.
Wishing you success, as you pin with gusto, imagination and great strategy for your social network marketing and home business.

How They Prayed...

The next time you pray, take a moment to think about men and women of the Bible and how they prayed. We can all learn much about prayer, just from looking into their lives and their prayer habits. Their life's journey serves as an incredible example for all of us.
Always start with praise! So many of their prayers began by praising God! For example, Daniel's focus was on God's greatness. He prayed to "the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with all who love Him and obey His commands" (Daniel 9:4). He acknowledged God as absolutely righteous, merciful and forgiving.

Begin your own prayers with praise and thanksgiving. Praise God for His mercy, His power and His love! Thank Him for His daily provisions for you and for your loved ones. Give Him the glory for your talents, your blessings and most of all for eternal salvation given so freely to each of us, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God has given us so much! 

Adore Him...For He adores you so very much! 

And Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior" (Luke 1:46 & 47).
