Meet Some Cats.

If you were to ask any of my bloggy mates about my tech savvy skills, they would roll their eyes at you. I actually have a tech lady on standby at all times. Her name is Kelly Exeter and as soon is it is legal, I am going to marry her. Sometimes my agency gathers their bloggers together for learnament, and I sit there nodding along, all the time thinking about Diet coke and Twisties.

I mean some of these bloggers are just so creative and brainy, it is mind blowing. Kat from The Organised Housewife has nearly half a million followers on Facebook! ChanFan from Fat Mum Slim has 97K followers on Instagram and Christina from Hair Romance has 290K people addicted to her Pinterest Account.

Now in blogging they say not to compare yourself to others and this is true. They also say that you have to be an early adaptor of new social medias to grow and survive in the cut throat clicky world. So when everyone started banging on about Pinterest, I just could not get my head around it. What was it for? Why would you do it? Just who are these pinners? Why do I keep calling it Pinstagram?

I started thinking about something I was passionate about and I came up with the following verticals (another wanky bloggy term).

  • dumplings
  • ugg boots
  • cats

And then with a few clicks, I started my Pinterest account.

So now, when I am at a meeting sitting around a table with young 20 somethings wearing massive heels talking blogging collaborations with brands and reach and KPI’s and all manner of crap, I can proudly tell them that my Pinterest Account now has 956 followers. 956 awesome people who like to meet some cats.

Do you get Pinterest?

Follow me here.

  • I’m not on Pinterest. Not on Twitter. Don’t do Instagram. I may not make it as a blogger! I do like your cats though πŸ™‚

  • I already follow you! I love your cat picures! I tend to use Pinterest to explain design ideas to my Hubby because saying things like “No not that gray, the less gray gray, you know that darkish gray that was on that show? Yes you do know, the one that had the blue undertones” apparently this is not clear enough when discussing the gray I want the walls.

    I use pinterest to collect recipes I will never cook, craft I will never make, things I will never buy, ideas I will never use……& large amounts of things that make me laugh….including your cats πŸ™‚

  • I wish I knew how Pinterest worked – must get my lovely friend Mrs Cooker and A Looker to sort me out – she’s my go-to tech girl! xx

  • I mostly use Pinterest to find things that make me laugh, and to collect DIY ideas that I will never do!

  • I love pinterest. Great for finding inspirational ideas on cooking, styling, hair, decor, the list is endless. V x

  • Mia the cat almost wore the mouthful of tea I was sipping on her bare skin, poor thing – too funny! You totally cracked me up today!

  • Elise

    Haha I love your cats on pinterest!

  • I don’t get it at all. But if there are cats I am IN! #sadcatlady

  • Hilaire! I love Graham the best! I’ll follow you but I don’t understand it either.

  • Mrs Lisa Gulyas

    I absolutely adore Pinterest and your “Meet Some Cats” board is my favourite. My husband often finds me pissing myself laughing at it late at night. Would you be so kind as to give us a heads up when you update the board?
    Thanks for the giggles xx

  • Tracey

  • Sharon Sweeny

    Ha! you made me snort! Don’t do Pinterest, have enough trouble keeping up with facebook and instagram but I am a crazy cat lady, Troy needs some serious rehab.
