I am so excited to announce a new project I’m kicking off. It’s called The Pintester Movement, and you can participate! I’m getting together as many people as possible to step outside our comfort zones and try that Pinterest pin that’s been sitting on your Someday list forever. It’s your kick in the pants to get it done! And, in the spirit of Pintester.com, we don’t care if you succeed or fail– In fact, if you fail, all the better. Make us laugh. It’ll be therapeutic.
In addition to your kick in the pants, benefits include fame and glory. I’ll be putting up a post on Thursday, May 30 (that gives you a week and a half to get your project done) with links to everyone who participates and writes up their results. If you have a blog, that means you get some link juice and free traffic from me.
If you don’t have a blog, fear not! I’ve partnered with the awesome folks over at GoMighty.com and they want you to use their platform to join in with us!
Using the site is simple. You just:
1. Register for an invite at http://gomighty.com/register/ . (They’re in beta so you have to request an invite, but they send the invite out in 12 hours or less from the request.)
2. Create a goal called ‘Participate in The Pintester Movement.’
3. Write a story attached to that goal sharing the project you make and tag it #pintestermovement.
So stop being scared to tackle that project. You might fail, sure. So what? If we’ve learned anything from Pintester.com it’s that failing is not the worst thing ever. And you know what else? You might totally love that pallet coffee table, or crock-pot cheesecake, or Barbie boob necklace you thought you couldn’t make. Win-win, lovlies. Win-win.
Rules? I’m not much on rules, but please link back to The Pintester Movement post (once it goes up) from your post on that day, and link to the original tutorial that you’re working from on your post, of course. (Spread around that referral love!) The final element I’d suggest (but won’t require!) is some kind of call-to-action for your readers to also take on a project they’ve been putting off and join The Pintester Movement!
Raring to go? I knew you would be! Sign up below and I will email you reminders and details as we get closer to the date! (If you can’t see the sign-up form, click here!)
