The Social Connection - Pinterest & Wanelo



Happy Last Day of May! We hope you had a wonderful 3-Day Memorial Day Weekend. This week we are doing out first edition of Pinterest/Wanelo! It's the first FIFTH Thursday we've had since we started it! Exciting right?!

Pinterest is a large community of people creating organized boards based on interests, needs, dreams, food, products, DIYs and everything in between. On Pinterest, once you pin something to your board you can click the link when you are ready and it takes you straight to the website.





wanelo - it stands for Want. Need. Love.
This site is similar to Pinterest in the way that you can create boards of products, however, it's not for all the dreams (unless you are dreaming of products to buy!), or of recipes. Instead, Wanelo is a powerhouse for categorizing products and it takes you straight to where you can purchase the item. It was built for consumers and business to connect for products, to make purchases, and build more product awareness. Awesome right? We think so!


Thanks for joining us!! Come back next week for Twitter!

The Social Connection


Welcome to the Weekly Revolving Link-Up - the Social Connection. So Sorry about technical difficulties last week! We will be linking BOTH Google + and Blogs to Make Up for it!!!! So here are the basics

Here's the FAQs for the Link-Up:

Who can link up? 

If you are someone who considers yourself a Small Business (Photography, Networking, Blog Design, etc. in other words if you offer a type of service) or a Shop Owner (either one) we would love for you to link-up.  

When is the link-up?
The link-up will be each week on Thursdays starting Next Thursday April 4th. The link-up for the specific week's "link-up" will be live until the following Wednesday evening.

Are There Rules???
All we ask are these couple of things:


  • Please only link-up the specific week's theme. If the link-up is twitter please only link-up your twitter handle(s).  If you have more than one link (i.e. personal & business) for the specific week, you are welcome to link-up both. 
  • If there are specific HOSTS or CO-HOSTS (these are labeled with *** and are the first few links ) on the list, we ask that you take the time and effort to follow them on their social media outlets - our co-hosts will be working hard to promote the link-up just as we do which ultimately leads to more people linking up and more people for you to meet!
Other Things:
Remember the more you put in, the more you get out, so the more that you follow others and interact with the others linking up the more connections you will get!
