After publishing my last three blogging tips posts I fielded A LOT of questions from other bloggers who were just like me wondering if I could help them step by step do exactly what I’ve been doing to create the traffic from Pinterest that I’ve been getting for Grandma’s House DIY. After tackling a huge blog post in an attempt to answer all of your questions it dawned on me that I needed to publish it as an ebook so it would make more sense and be easier to follow. So, here it is, my first ever ebook. I’ve learned a ton of lessons over the past two years and I really hope they can help you with Pinterest as much as they’ve helped me!

This article is officially (terribly) dated because BoardBooster is dead. Find out how I switched to Tailwind by clicking here

After the death of BoardBooster I switched to Tailwind and went from 2 million to over 5 million views in just one month, how I did it - my pinning strategy

Much of what I’ll be showing you in the ebook I’ve touched on in my previous blog posts:
Time Saving Blogging Tips: How I get ahead on my blog so I can take a break!
15,000 Pageviews a month: How I did it in 1 year & how I do it every day!
Pinterest Strategy: What I wish I had known and implemented when I started blogging.

Disclosure (read this before you buy my Ebook!!!)

I have been blogging at Grandma’s House DIY since August of 2015 – that’s two years and a couple of months as I’m writing this. Sadly, this is not my day job. This is what I HOPE will be my day job some day. It is the only blog I have ever had and the only blog I ever plan to have. I came into this having NEVER blogged before.

Currently Grandma’s House DIY is seeing 25,000 views a month and that’s around 20,000 unique visitors. Almost HALF of that traffic is coming from Pinterest and, though it is possible to apply all of the following steps to your Pinterest account without BoardBooster, currently it is not something I am capable of doing with my day job. So, this is also a tutorial on how I utilize BoardBooster. (I have never paid for advertising for my blog in Pinterest or anywhere.)

Grandma’s House DIY is a blog devoted to our farmhouse (previously owned by my grandparents) that my husband and I renovated over the course of fifteen months. With the renovation complete, I started the blog. It is totally devoted to tips for living frugally, doing everything yourself and making your own household products in every conceivable way. I also refinish furniture and build furniture and the blog reflects all of that in the form of pretty pictures and DIY tutorials. In other words: It is perfect for Pinterest. However, not all blogs will be able to utilize Pinterest in the same way so take note that, because of my blog’s niche, Pinterest really works well for me.

What this ebook guide I will teach you, step by step, exactly how I did it and do it every single day. Using screen shots I will show you how I chose my boards, described them and what I’m pinning currently. I will also show you exactly how I’m using BoardBooster as a scheduling tool to pin for me throughout the day. Hopefully, what I’ve learned over the past two years, you can also apply to your blog!

    I want to blog full time too, but I don’t think that will ever happen. I will look at your tips though. I love your blog. I once had my grandparents farm house as well. I did not get to keep mine though so I am extremely happy for you.

      Thank you Carol, yup become a full time blogger does feel like a pipe dream some days but I just keep hacking away at it!

    That’s pretty impressive Tarah…to have that many visitors in a week! I’m proud for you. I could use your book, but can’t do it right now. Would love to learn how to use Boardbooster more effectively though. Thanks for sharing!
