Hi everyone…sure hope your week has been a great one. Have you all caught the Fall bug yet? I know I have…I celebrated with Pumpkin Spice Latte…if that doesn’t say Fall I don’t know what does. What are all of you guys doing to add Fall into your lives? We can’t wait to see all the new Seasonal Creations coming in…it’s so exciting…fun and inspirational! Everything you do is loved by us and we thank you for dropping by each and every week!
How about another little Blog Tip? Not exactly this week…I am going to share a Pinterest Story with you. Ok…a do a lot of pinning on a regular basis. I do all of my pinning by hand which is supposed to be really loved by Pinterest. I am not going to lie to you…I get about 70 percent of my 1.5 million hits a month from Pinterest so you can see why it is really important to me! Ok…I digress… I have always pinned by the rules and thank God I have had no real problem…glitches and such but nothing heart stopping. I have seen a friend of mine have her entire account disappear…I mean GONE… it took her 1 full month to get it back and constant correspondence with Pinterest. Finally one day it was all back which of course we are thankful for but a month is a long time. I have heard about CRAZY stories…I mean over the top and couldn’t understand how that could happen… well first hand experience happened last evening. I sat down to pin like I do every night at 7:30… only this time I started with a dear friend of mines blog…I went directly to her blog and proceeded to pin about 6 of her posts. Sounds normal right? Well all of a sudden…I looked up and ALL…I repeat…ALL of my pins were gone…all 130,000+ …enter HEART STOPPING MOMENT!!! Ok…MAJOR Panic Time. I checked everything…clicked everything…went to every board imaginable…went through all the things it could be on Pinterest Help Center. I found one thing that it might be…it says when consecutive pins from one blog/website come quickly that could block your account…REALLY??? um…yes! They also said to wait 1 hour to 24 hours to see if it comes back…there was no way I could wait without doing something! (by the way I got a message that I might have inappropriate material on my blog…well we all know that is not it…lol). So as I was writing my crazy lady letter to Pinterest…offering them my first born (only kidding) to get my account back …my son says …it’s BACK! OK…had to get my breath and try to lower my heart rate and think like a normal person. Even though I was so happy…the fear of God had been put into me…I mean…what if it was gone…what if I didn’t have Pinterest as a showcase for my blog…the answer to that question is NOT a pretty one and is why I am sharing this story with you. The chances are low of forever using your account but they exist…even loosing an account for a month could be devastating and as “they” say..It CAN happen to you and I found out the hard way. So…I am going to spend much time on the back end of my blog working diligently on my SEO…reworking Key Words…adding new elements to posts…redirecting and yes…even deleting. It’s not an easy thing to do when you are talking about 4000 posts but it is a must…I can’t have that happen again. Guys I was scared out of my mind. My friend advised me to do affiliate posts to boost income and to have something to fall back on and I will be doing that. I never really did it much so not to annoy readers… but I think I will do it a little bit now and see how it goes. I am going to work much harder on my mailing list to keep it growing at a fast pace and many other things. I will keep you posted on what is helping to raise that Google number. Don’t get me wrong…I love Pinterest and I appreciate and am thankful for what it has done for my family and I… but alas… in the end you have to back yourself up. It’s kind of like not evacuating for a hurricane…you can stay and see what happens …or you can go and be safe (all of you that are in harms way…we are sending you all tons of love and prayers). So please learn from my experience and give yourself a back-up ok! I will talk more about all of these things more as weeks go by and if something else happens…you will be the first to know.
Disclaimer: I did not proof read this at all! I just came out this way lol!!!
