You may think the title of this week’s post is a bit redundant, but I honestly can’t believe it’s taken me this long to feature “Catholic Pinterest” as our Board of the Week. Established by Catholic Pinterest Queen Allison Girone, the Catholic Pinterest group board now has over 50 pinners, over 1100 pins and nearly 2100 followers. You’ll find some of your favorite Catholic bloggers pinning there, but also great Catholic institutions like Our Sunday Visitor and the Catholic Company.

One of the great things about the Catholic Pinterest group board is that it highlights the synergy that is possible with a tool like Pinterest when we all work as a team. I’m thrilled that so many faith-filled pinners have come together to create a resource that is truly the “go to” place for Catholics on Pinterest. Please follow Catholic Pinterest today, and be sure to check out Allison Girone‘s great boards too — and while you’re there, thank her for her curation of this great community!

And here’s this week’s tip of the week from Allison Girone of the Catholic Pinterest Group Board who has kindly agreed to offer a weekly pointer for us on how to use some best practices to enjoy and effectively employ Pinterest:

Utilize the buttons to tweet your pin or Facebook your pin…when appropriate. Ask yourself how many of these pins are my followers going to want to see? It could be overdone if your friends receive 10 Facebook updates from you in as many minutes. Because once you’re in a groove on Pinterest, the pins can start dancing…

If you’re a Catholic using Pinterest, please drop a link in the comments below to share your boards. Also, I’d love to hear about why you love Pinterest and how you think this latest craze might be used to spread the Good News.

  1. Hi Lisa,
    Thanks for the cool pinterest post. I can’t remember if I passed this along before…I’ve got a Catholic Pinboard Share (link-up) …another neat way gather together Catholic Pinners and find new Catholic Pinboards to follow.
    I’m a pinner and follower of Catholic Pinterest as well, and I have another Catholic board here:
    Thanks, Lisa!
