For years I’ve heard about Problogger’s 31 Days to a Better Blog, and how he’s challenged people to produce blog content for 31 days in a row.
The initial 30 day challenge started back in 2007, and I feel that his project created positive and productive ripples throughout the blogsphere. Now it’s no uncommon to hear other bloggers that don’t usually blog on a daily basis to do a 30 day blogging project.
Because there is so much to learn from Pinterest it can be hard to know where to start, or what to focus on. I’m hoping with the 31 Days to a Better Pinterest Page project, that I’ll be able to provide you with actionable steps that you can take every single day to help take your Pinterest marketing to the next level.
Some of the steps will definitely be easily done, and can be accomplished within 10 minutes, others may take hours for you to complete as they may be new and challenging, and some may require that you seek outside help. The steps are designed to help you improve your Pinterest marketing.
From August 1st to August 31st, 2014 I will be providing a blog post every day that focuses on an actionable Pinterest tip or insight that will help you create a better Pinterest page.

The 31 Days to a Better Pinterest Page Project Scares Me
I’m scared. I’m not going to lie. I’ve never done anything like this before, and so I don’t know what to expect from it. When I first contemplated this project, I was scared that I wouldn’t have enough great content for 31 days in a row. I was also afraid that I would run out of material to write about after the project was over. But what I’m most afraid of is being an impostor.
What if the content I provide in the next 31 days isn’t good enough for you? If the articles are too short, will they still be of help to you? I’m also worried that for many of the people who are more advanced with Pinterest won’t find my articles interesting to read. I have all these doubts in my head.
I’m Always Wanting to Provide New Content – My Weakness and Strength
One of the my strengths and weaknesses, is that I like writing about new ideas and new discoveries. I have an ego that likes being the first. But at the same time this has also hindered me because my ego refuses to write about topics that I know could be very useful to readers. I keep telling myself “It’s not new, I don’t think people would be interested.”
I don’t like it when people think I’m copying someone else’s ideas or the “I read that on (name of the blog), can’t you teach me something new?”
It’s that feeling of always trying be new, and being afraid of being compared to someone else’s knowledge or writing is what worries me. I hate feeling “unoriginal” in many ways.
It’s Darren Rowse’s influence, and that ego of mine that demands that I try a new a project that has led me to 31 Days to a Better Pinterest Project, and to face my fear that it’s okay to write about topics that other people have written. I know in my heart that there will be others who are starting off on their Pinterest journey.
After looking over my drafts, that not every article is going be life changing or WOWing, but I hope that at the end of it, all those small steps will help you take a look back at your Pinterest account and go…Wow…all those little steps did help. And if it did, then I know I’ve done my job.
I Hope I Don’t Let You Down
I hope I don’t let you down. I want to be able to help you create a better Pinterest account within 31 days, by offering advice that I hope you find helpful and to be able to give you action steps that you can help you build a better Pinterest page.
One of my joys is reading e-mails or comments on how my content has helped people improve their Pinterest marketing. (Again this is where my ego kicks in.)
I wish I could tell you that it’s purely for selfless reasons, that I’m doing this because I only want to help people build a better Pinterest account, which I do, that’s a very strong part of it. But it’s also exciting to use this project as a way of building a bigger and better community, and I’m also using it as a way to launch the Pintalysis Academy, and potentially my second Pinterest book.
What I Want for You from the 31 Days to a Better Pinterest Page
My goal is very simple – to help you become profitable with your Pinterest marketing. I know it’s an ambitious goal, but I do believe that results are important, and if I can’t help you become more profitable than I hope I’m able to help you grow and strengthen relationships with your own community.
As I share with you Pinterest tips and daily actionable steps in the next 31 days, I hope that you will share with me with me what your journey is like and whether what I’m writing has been extremely helpful, or whether you feel it’s just a lot B.S.
I may not like the negative comments, but the reality is I know that it’s necessary to help me grow and to provide you with better content. I’ve also learned that when people leave constructive feedback, it also means that they care.
But I hope as we take this journey together that we can transform each other’s lives, and share the different learning experiences, and that you’re able to share with me some great tips that you learned about Pinterest marketing.
Thank you for being part of this journey! And look forward to providing you great actionable steps and insights as you join me during the 31 Days to a Better Pinterest Page project.
