If you’re wondering if there is a secret sauce to gaining more readers to your blog, there is. It is called Pinterest. This social image sharing site that many use as a website where you express your interests through pins into boards that store various images of the same topic and repin images of shared interest of others, to bloggers, Pinterest is the goddess of bringing more views to your blog, hence more readers.
This does not mean that you should eliminate words from your blog, or lesson the amount of wording; this simply means you should pay more attention to the images you add to your blog that associates itself to the article and be sure to use more than one. This may come easy to those who write their articles around images they find, but for the rest of us, who write and then find images to go with our articles this can sometimes prove difficult.
As a blogger you want to try and start thinking how you can begin writing about an image or images that can appeal to the masses, here is another way Pinterest can play yet another role within the life of a blogger. This is a one-stop-spot where you can see how popular images are and properly give credit too; you can then use those statistics to find a creative way to write about a topic that surrounds that image.
Images are popular on social networks, you have seen that increase with your very own eyes and you do not need to be a writer to know that photos have become a universal way to communicate, whether it is of places we wish to travel, animals we find so cute, infographics to internet memes. The list is long and that means there is a ton of inspiring articles waiting for your words to turn an image into a story. It really is true, a picture is worth a thousand words, so begin writing and pinning and watch as the views come in and the relationship with new readers begin.
