12 Most Intriguing Board Names on Pinterest
What’s in a name? The challenge on Pinterest is to stand out in the sea of amazing creativity and inspiration. Be clever, make a board that does not exist (yes it’s still possible) or add a unique twist to the ordinary. Whimsy, humor, and yes even sarcasm work on Pinterest.
1. Grab the senses
Are you hungry? Have you ever found inspiration for your bedroom from your breakfast?
You will find all of that here.
2. State the obvious
In an effort to inject some Y chromosome into Pinterest, Board of Man has created an AMAZING following and highlights the power of collaboration and focus.
“She knits! She crochets! And clearly she drinks heavily to come up with these creations.”
4. Game on
This board belongs to one Ryan Seacrest. Simple, classic board game with a twist.
5. Be inspired by a song
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
You will instantly start humming Cyndi Lauper’s tune as you scroll through these fun images.
6. A worthy cause
ANYONE Can Get Lung Cancer!
Name a board after a cause, charity, orgazination to build awareness, educate, and support.
7. Inspiring locations
Rather than just calling this I love France ~ Kelby Carr kicked it up to CLEVER.
8. Geek vs Nerd
Highlight your Star Wars, Dr. Who, Legos, or tech obsession with a cool name.
9. Share your accomplishments
Pinterested in Me?
Pinterest frowns on using it as a tool for self promotion. But with some creativity like this you can easily share projects you have done or if you are job hunting.
10. Eye candy
Boy crazy – blondes need not apply.
We have all seen them Boards that are dedicated to well…pretty people. This one is tops though!
11. Everyday objects become so much more
It’s not just a door or a window ~ it is an invitation to explore
12. About all of those DIY projects and crafts
As you can see the list goes on and on. #12 has inspired me; it will be a crafty afternoon.
Beyond the name it is about quality not quantity. Focus, Pin relevant quality images, add clear descriptions to your Pins and to the board description (your out of-the-box name may not reflect the Pins, so add this so that your Pins and Boards can be searched for and found), add multiple contributors to maximize exposure but make sure they understand the vision for the Board. Now let your creative juices flow and make your 6th grade English teacher proud with your colorful use of imagery.
What have you done to make your Boards stand out?
