i don’t think i mentioned it on my blog, but if you follow me on instagram, then you may have noticed that i went on a quick trip to san francisco a few weeks back. i packed up a few things and took off with my little family in tow so that we could squeeze in some touristy time between my days spent at the pinterest headquarters with an incredible group of influential pinterest users from around the country. and to be completely honest, i don’t even know how i ended up being selected to attend among so many talented people to choose from! but there i was, sitting in a room with evan sharp, one of the co-founders of pinterest, and chatting away with the legendary enid hwang.
to give you some background, earlier this year, the pinterest community team started work on their first ever pinterest ambassador program. this first group of individuals is serving as a sort of pilot to help them build an even larger community program over the next months and years. it’s essentially turned into a very rare opportunity for us to not only become more educated about the platform, but to be able to give our feedback directly to the team about what we’d like to see incorporated into the program. so we spent a lot of time digesting information and thinking up big ideas during the three days we were there. i came home with a ridiculous wealth of knowledge around how to utilize pinterest to grow your blog or business, and i’m pretty excited to start sharing some of that information with you here.
and as part of the summit, we hosted a #pinmeetup at the pinterest headquarters and had a chance to meet with tons of people from the community. each of us set up a different pinterest project at our own respective tables and welcomed guests to participate. i shared an easy demo on how to create your own sea salt bath soaks based around my own pin. it was a really fun evening, and these photos are the only evidence of the entire weekend, so i thought i’d share!
