The Pinterest Way To Find Great PinnersWhile you’re in the Pinterest site itself, the easiest thing to do is to browse categories and popular pins, then click randomly on people who have pinned something interesting that you like.
Hack your day with Pinterest in order to stay motivated, then add any users you have found.
Check out your favourite blogs (see MakeUseOf.com on Pinterest) and follow the people who have been pinning their content.
Look at all the users who have pinned the pictures you have liked. You can then either follow all of their boards or just the boards relevant to you.
You can also find your friends via social networks, which should hopefully lead you to connect to people who you respect and know that you already have similar interests.
Finally, you can explore all the users that the people you are following are following.
The problem with these methods is there’s no guarantee these Pinners you find this way will update regularly with great content. It’s very hit and miss.
