    Hi Melissa,

    Thanks for ALL of the great tips on who to follow. I was wondering, though, why doesn’t Pinterest have a Mom category? They have a Kids category, but a Mom one would include all of the things moms need… organization, encouragement, how to be a better mom, etc.

    Should I suggest it to Pinterest? Thanks!

    • http://pinterest-savvy.net Melissa Taylor

      good question – I don’t know but yes, suggest it!!

    • http://pinterest-savvy.net Melissa Taylor

      good question & yes!

  • http://www.buydirectusa.com Michelle

    Love your tips and information Melissa. Even though we promote lots of Made in USA products, I still get to pin whatever I am interested in as the Pinterest administrator for BuyDirectUSA.com Talk about a fun job!

    Another pinner I love is MentorMob. They have the biggest selection of great tutorials and how-tos for just about anything to improve your lifestyle

      great, thanks!

    Why does everything turn into a contest??? I thought Pinterest was “just for fun”! Now I lost another contest I did not even know we were in!!!
    Guess I gotta look for something else!

    • http://pinterest-savvy.net Melissa Taylor

      For small (and big) businesses, sweepstakes & contests are a way to give back to fans and get noticed.
