Naming Boards On Pinterest: Keep It Simple, Specific And Easy To Follow

How To "Pin" Point Your Posts On Pinterest

I am having a ball using the new social media site called Pinterest.com  At first I thought the name of the game was to create as many boards as possible, so I kept coming up with new versions of the same general idea. For example, I would have boards called "Vintage Barkcloth Gallery" or  "Retro Barkcloth" or "Barkcloth Galore" etc. These would be general categories that I would fill with all kinds of Barkcloth images. The trouble began when I started so many boards with similar names that I forgot where to put what.

Name You Pinterest Boards With Simple Titles
I discovered that having multiple boards on the same topic was driving me nuts. I wold forget what board I created. So now after several months of being on the site, I have gone back into my boards and streamlined them to be more specific.

How I Categorized My Vintage Barkcloth Pinterest Boards

 For example, I now have categorized my vintage Barkcloth boards according to types of patterns that you will find for these wonderful textiles  i.e. "Retro Barkcloth Leaves And Trees" or "Abstract Barkcloth Vintage". as well as boards dedicated to specific Barkcloth products i.e. "Barkcloth Handbags"  or :Barkcloth Pillows" .  

Super categorizing my boards now makes it easier for me   to add new "pins" (images) and for others to find unique items they are looking for.
