How Visit Gainesville Uses Pinterest

If you haven’t already looked up your hometown or local city on Pinterest, you might be surprised by what you find. Here in Gainesville, Visit Gainesville has tons of information on local events, restaurants, shops and more. Aside from their website, they’re also very active on Facebook, Twitter, and you guessed it… Pinterest!

I had the opportunity to sit down this week with Ms. Anna Mikell from Visit Gainesville, and she talked about how Pinterest has become another great tool she utilizes at work. Not only does its Pinterest account promote Visit Gainesville, but it also delivers a vast load of useful and interesting content to its followers.

5 Pinners Worth Following

10 Feb

One of the reasons why I love Pinterest is because it’s fun, easy and organized way to find different crafts, recipes, workouts, fashion tips and WAY more.

But did you know that there is SO MUCH MORE to Pinterest than just following your friends’ boards? There are tons of celebrities and companies on Pinterest. Here are five pinners that I personally think are worth following. They’re all filled will loads of pinperfect ideas.

1- Starbucks Loves

Let’s be honest, how many people do you actually know that don’t like Starbucks? Even if you’re not a regular, it is nice to treat yourself to a white chocolate mocha every now and then. Well Starbucks Love is perfect for coffee lovers and water chuggers alike. They have tasty treats, creative crafts and loads of coffee pins that just simply make you feel warm inside.


So I know not everyone is a fan of watching HGTV, but you have to admit, they pretty much are the leaders when it comes to DIY projects, and anything that has to do with your home. The have boards for every room in your house and outdoors as well. Little tip: you MUST check out their “HGTV Dream Homes” board, you’ll be speechless.

3- Your School

Whether you’re a student or alumni, there’s nothing like showing off your school spirit. A lot of universities and colleges have their own official Pinterest accounts. They pin everything from campus photos, sporting events, graduation ceremonies and even game day taunts.

4- LaurenConrad.com

Some of you might remember her as LC from MTV’s Laguna Beach or The Hills, but Lauren Conrad has grown up to be a high-profile style icon. I love following her because she doesn’t just use her boards to promote her fashion line. She pins everything from exercise routines, nails, décor, and even just pretty flowers.

5- Pinterest!

Believe it or not, Pinterest has its own Pinterest account! You can get a behind the scenes look of their offices, check out some funny pins, or even take a glimpse of “The Pinterest Challenge.”
