Pinterest – 3
Although most people think Pinterest is visual based, it is also a great place to share your blog posts, if you have your own page set up you can create a board called BLOG and within there add a small snippet about your blog post, a link and an image which includes the title of the blog post ( for creating the Pinterest use Canva.com )
