Pin It Forward UK Kickoff!

image

Three years ago, when Pinterest was a much smaller community and team, we had a great opportunity to have bloggers try out pinning. The site looked quite a bit different back then, we didn’t have any mobile apps, but it was a lot of fun and we learned a great deal from folks too. Back in 2010, this collaboration was called “Pin It Forward,” and we thought we’d bring back the idea to get to know our British community and how they use Pinterest. We’ve invited blogger Will Taylor of Bright.Bazaar, one of our earliest pinners, to share a guest post and kick off Pin It Forward UK with colour and style.

Hi there! My name is Will Taylor, a freelance interiors journalist and blogger at Bright.Bazaar, happily pinning since 2010. Those who know me can attest to my love of colour, but it’s also true that my addiction to Pinterest is just as strong as my affection for all things bright.

It’s been exciting to see how Pinterest has grown and evolved over the years. While the site has always been available worldwide, the team is making Pinterest feel even more welcoming for those of us across the pond. In addition to Pin It Forward UK, there’s a new (very proper) British English language setting and improvements to make local UK content more easily discoverable for UK pinners when searching.

For the next 30 days, 300 bloggers from the UK will be sharing boards and stories about what inspires them and how Pinterest is a part of their personal passions. We’ve rounded up all sorts of bloggers from home cooks, to automotive enthusiasts, globe-trotting writers and more. We hope this mix will help you discover some great pinners and curators in the UK—no matter what you’re interested in.
