I think what's helping me this morning is:
Having a visually appealing logo and bio
Posting pins to community boards (10,000 followers +) that I belong to
Only pinning the BEST photos, especially health and food pins--creates authority
Only pinning clear photos with visually appealing graphics
Liking EVERY photo that I pin
Adding my own quirky and personal comments on the photos that I pin
It's hard work, but going to try to keep at it daily so that when I pin more of my own content, the REAL followers come to my website.
