For this week’s Kathryn’s Crochet Corner I thought I’d just focus on one specific thing about me that you may or may not know: mine Pinterest aktier. I previously shared my Pinterest opinion and ideas for Pinterest best practices but I never really said what I personally pin on the site so I thought I’d share that now.
Here’s a screenshot of my Pinterest boards:
Jeg har i øjeblikket tyve forskellige bestyrelser på Pinterest, hvoraf de fleste er relateret til hækling. For eksempel, my newest Pinterest board is for hæklede og blonder sko. I use them to organize the different types of crochet things that I like. For mig, it’s a great visual way to see my own personal interests spread out in one space. I like to go back and look at the compilation of different things I’ve liked in a category over time. I have a board for my 365 Ways to Wear Crochet project because it’s the single best way for me to see all of the photos at once.
The truth is that I use Pinterest far more like my own inspiration board than I use it for social networking. I do follow people and I do frequently look at the crochet, art and fashion items that are pinned. But ultimately, I usually pin stuff that comes from my own crochet blog. People don’t recommend this in terms of using the site for social networking and I understand why but for me it’s about collecting the things that I like and want to go back to. Sometimes I like to go to a board, such as my crochet art board, just to look at some of the themes that have started to develop. Then I can click through back to my own links as a form of research. I mine my own archives this way but it starts by getting re-inspired by things I’ve already collected. So in crochet art I may start seeing quite a few pins of public space art and that might get me thinking about doing further research into that type of art starting with what I’ve already written about.
I started on Pinterest a long time ago, when it first launched. På det tidspunkt, I was moving into a new space and a lot of the pins were items for decorating and creating my own home. Those pin boards are gone now because they aren’t relevant to me anymore. I’ve retained a few boards that aren’t crochet Pinterest creations. I’ve got one for fashion inspiration, where I do sometimes include crochet fashion but also include other things. I’ve got one for retro photo inspiration, one for hotels and places I’d like to visit some day, and one for various art that I want to look at again. These are the boards that are most likely to include pins that don’t have anything to do with my own research and are just for following up on the links later.
I could definitely do a better job of creating boards that are clearer to others in terms of niche crochet categories. I’ve done it to some extent, with boards on crochet cowls and crochet jewelry and designer crochet. But there are some boards that are just mish mash collections of items for “hækling inspiration” eller “crochet I adore”. When I start to see things that I pin a lot here, ligesom hæklede sko, Jeg har efterhånden oprette en ny Pinterest bord for at samle dem i ét rum. Det er ikke altid mening for andre, men det giver mening for mig. Og mens jeg vil have mine Pinterest hæklede bestyrelser til at være tilgængelig for andre, Jeg først og fremmest vil have dem til at være et sted for mig at spille.
Hvis du kan lide at kigge på hækling (ikke nødvendigvis efter mønstre, men mere til inspiration) og du nyder Pinterest så kan du slutte sig til mig her. Og hvis der er nogen Pinterest hæklede boards du ville have mig til at skabe, Lad mig vide,. Nogle af dem, jeg tænker på er Pinterest Hæklet Hatte, Generelle Fiber Arts Finder og hæklet tasker.
