Perfectly curated Pinterest boards are a goldmine of great information. I spend a lot of time making sure that my boards are refreshed with relevant and interesting content for people to find and repin to their boards.
My love for Pinterest continues to grow as my resources build and I pin to my Pinterest board collections. Pinterest is for sharing and marketing but my number one reason to pin is to gather inspiration and save valuable resources.
I've put together a collection of Pinterest boards to help others that are social media fans build their own social media and blogging resources. All these pinners have fantastic a Pinterest presence but I wanted to highlight one board since it's best to follow individual boards for focused content.
Look at how these pinners add their own great branded content and share their own blog posts to get ideas for your own social media sharing.
I hope you enjoy them!

3. Social media and design inspiration
Meet Dustin: Social Media and Creativity collide. Crafting creative ideas and turning them into visual and verbal brilliance. Dustin helps people look more awesome online.
Dustin is my reluctant pinning friend. He's a blogger and designer that wasn't seeing the value in Pinterest but traffic started heading to his blog so he researched it more. A switch in the design of his graphics from horizontal to vertical pins in 735 pixels x 1102 pixels made Dustin a believer in the power of Pinterest.
