How To Increase Your Blog Traffic With Pinterest

How To Increase.png

One thing I’ve learned in trying to grow my blog audience is that social media is key.

Okay, maybe not the only key, but it’s still a major key in growing any blog (in my opinion.)

Not gonna lie, being a full time student and blogger is hard. Sometimes, I struggle to keep all the plates spinning at once. Social media is a great way to grow any website. So much of my traffic has come from social media, especially Pinterest.

Pinterest is underrated a lot of the time, but it has over 100 MILLION active users. So today I’m sharing with you my own personal tips on how to grow your blog with Pinterest.

Thinking Out Loud #2

Hello all! I hope your week has treated you nicely so far. I’ve been pretty busy this past week, so that explains why my posting has been a little less often. Thanks to Amanda for creating this awesome link-up! Let’s get into my thoughts… img_6383  

#Prayforbrussels CeL7HwVW8AU4mR6.jpg-small Tuesday morning I awoke to such sad news, as did the rest of the world. There’s so much pain going on all around the world right now. My prayers and thoughts are with all the innocent victims of this horrid incident. My heart truly aches for all the loved ones of those who lost their lives.

Braces *I would include a picture, but I just went through over 900+ photos on my camera roll and have no photos of me smiling showing my braces. Oops!* On a much lighter note, I’m finally going to get my braces off in about 4 weeks!!! I am SO excited. Since I never show my teeth in pictures, you probably didn’t know I have braces (unless you’re closely related to me.) I’ve had them for over 2.5 years and am more than ready to get them off. I’m waiting for my retainer to come in and then I go in and get them taken off. I plan on writing a “Braces 101” blog post once I get them taken off. Hopefully, those of you who are considering getting braces will find that helpful.   

PLL Finale54507197 In my last Thinking Out Loud I said I was a little confused with this season of PLL. I still kind of am, but think that this season got better as it progressed. How it ended recently was a huge shocker and has me already plotting theories for the next season. I really liked that in this season the characters are older. It was getting hard to believe they were in still high school when they looked to be in their mid 20’s. I’m really excited to see what the spring 2016 season holds. Just when I think that they have run out of a story line, they surprise me with a crazy plot twist. Who is Mrs. D’s twin???  

Souvenirs AUNT_6468My sweet aunt recently went to Paris and brought me back 2 lovely souvenirs. I got this adorable shirt, that is so comfy! And, I also got a snow globe with the Eiffel Tower in it. How cute?! These are gifts that I will always treasure ❤ Thank you, Auntie!!

Spring nails


Please excuse my horrible nail painting skills! 😉 Although yard work is probably my least favorite chore. I am pretty stoked for spring! I’m looking forward to reading outside, exploring the great outdoors and my birthday is in April 🙂 I had a busy weekend and then a ton of school work. So painting my nails hasn’t been on my “priority list,” but I love having pretty *non-chipped* nails. So, I treated myself to a at home manicure. Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands 🙂 This color is called “Where’s my chauffeur?”


That’s all my thoughts for this week. It’s raining cats and dogs outside as I type up the remainder of this post. Oh well, March showers bring April flowers, right..? Something like that, ha! I hope you all have a great Easter weekend. Talk you in my next blog post ❤


Question time:

Have you ever had braces?

What’s one thing you love about springtime?
