    Great tips there Lorna, It’s time I took another look at mine. It’s so important to do this to all your social media accounts regularly, I’m often surprised at what I’ve written or placed as important in the past. How often do you recommend doing it?

      Yes, it goes for all social media – twitter bio, blog about us page etc. I think about every six months for the Pinterest account should be sufficient but change cover images every 2-3 months depending on how much you are pinning.

    I do occasionally have a good sort out but could do with deleting a few boards tbh. As much as I pin away all my favourite recipes, the chances are I’ll never look at them!

      I often wonder how many people actually just pin images and never look at them again. Having said that, I do have crochet projects that I’ve pinned that I fully intend to start once I finish my current one. Plus, I often reread articles from boards (bookmark them and refer to them later from my own posts).
      I was surprised by the number I deleted to be honest.

    Great tips! I’ll be pinning this article on my business’ Organizing Pinterest Boards board. Pin4Ever has some great tools for organizing, including our free Bulk Editing buttons which let you move/copy/delete/rearrange multiple pins in one step.

      Thanks Christina, will check out that tool too :)

        You’re welcome, Lorna! You can read about our other tools on our website — there’s some more great ones, like full backups of your pins and boards, finding duplicate pins on your account, and more.

    Thanks for the timely reminder. I blush when I think that I haven’t done any spring – cleaning since I set up my account two years ago!

      It all depends on how much you pin and if you impulsively set up boards or not. Also depends on whether you accept invitations to group boards – it can be a good idea to check them again :)
