11 Great Pinterest Group Boards for Bloggers

Eleven Great Pinterest Boards for Bloggers

I’m such a huge fan of Pinterest. I’ve been using it for years, but when I rebranded and launched The White Corner Creative in April, I really started investing a lot of time and effort into my blog’s Pinterest presence. Today, the biggest source of traffic for my blog is Pinterest, not only because I’ve found followers on my own, but because I’ve joined a number of group boards that I pin to regularly.

Let’s say you have 500 followers on Pinterest. That means that when you Pin something from your own website, 500 people are going to see it. This is likely not true, because Pinterest probably only shows your pin to a portion of your followers, but even if your Pin was shown to every single one of your followers, that’s still a max of 500 people who are going to see it. Then maybe a few of them repin it, and then their followers see it too.

But, what if you had a way to amplify your reach without having to go out begging for followers or spending hours trying to interact with others? That’s where Pinterest Group Boards come in. Group boards are boards run by people that have opened them up so that others can also pin to them. You just need to be added to the board by the owner or administrator, and then you can pin to it just like you do any other board. The major difference is that these boards usually have a huge number of followers. People are happy to follow these boards because the idea of seeing high quality pins from a variety of different people is very appealing, and just like you don’t want to search for followers, they don’t want to search for boards to follow – so following one created by lots of people is great.

In a nutshell – this means that you should be pinning to as many Pinterest Group Boards as you can. The most important element of a board is how many followers they have. Of course, you want to search for boards with lots of followers, but you also want to find boards that are relevant to your topic. Pinning to a recipe board if you’re a design blogger doesn’t make much sense, but luckily there are tonnes of group boards out there just waiting for you to apply. Normally group boards will have instructions in their description on how to start pinning to them, and the process is as easy as following the board and the admin and then commenting that you’d like to be added.

My niche is blogging, design, and entrepreneurship, so I love finding boards in this area to pin to, and they have expanded my reach by unbelievable amounts. Here are some of my favourite Pinterest Group boards, ranked by how many followers they have.

One thing to remember when pinning to group boards is that you can’t just spam every board you pin to with the same pin the day the post is published. You need to break it up over time so that people’s feeds don’t get clogged with your pins. Think about if there was someone following every single board you pin to – you don’t want them to see 20 of your pin all in a row, you want to remind them of your post over time.

If you’re looking for even more group boards, there are services like Pin Groupie that list lots of boards and make it possible to search by niche and topic, and there are Facebook groups like Pinterest Collaborative Boards that make it really easy for people to find boards to pin to.

What Group Pinterest Boards do you love to pin to?
Comment below and I’ll add them to the list!

  • Thanks for sharing these. I usually follow blogs directly and have not been focusing on Pinterest. That all changed today thanks to your post.

    • Thanks Linda! It’s really such an amazing tool and can be a great way to increase reach and traffic!

  • Great list! I’ve heard of a few of these, but I’m going to check out the rest.

    • Thanks Samantha! Some of them are a little small but still worth checking out!

  • Great list of group boards. I have joined a few of those, but hadn’t seen most of them. Love that some of them are for design and business as well :) Thank you!

    • Thanks Rhoda! I especially like those ones as well, it’s nice to be able to find boards in your niche!

  • Jessica

    I have been looking for more groups to join, these look perfect!

    • Glad to help Jessica! These are all definitely worth taking a look at!

  • Thank you for this list! Do you know what happened to the FB group board group? I’ve tried to access it a couple times over the last month to join it and it seems like it’s vanished? Weird, huh?

    • Hey Jess, thanks for reading! Do you mean the Facebook group ‘Pinterest Collaborate Boards’ ? If so – I’m not sure! When I visit the link it works fine, so maybe you just need to login or request an invite somehow! https://www.facebook.com/groups/pinterestboards/ Very strange. If you let me know your email address I think I can try and send you an invite to the group with that!

      • Hey Melissa,

        That would be wonderful if you could invite me. This is the message I keep getting when I click on either of your links:

        This content is currently unavailable

        The page you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired, or you may not have permission to view this page.

        Thanks so much for the help! My email address is jessicacoppom at gmail dot com.

        • Hmm very strange indeed! I’ve invited you to the group by email so hopefully it will work now!

          • Thank you so much, Melissa! I got the invite.

          • ARG! I still get the same error when I click your invite. (And this isn’t just related to you. I’ve seen other posts about this group and tried to join by just accessing the FB group and I get the same error.) Do you know if maybe the group is not accepting new members? I’m working so hard on my Pinterest strategy, but really struggling with the group board aspect. I wanna make this silly thing work! :)

          • That’s so strange! I don’t see any reason why there would be a problem and as far as I know they are accepting new members. I’ll message the Admin with your email and see if she can help!

          • Thank you, Melissa! I really appreciate your persistence.

          • Hey Melissa–Is this the group you’re in? After some poking around in FB blogging groups, I got into this group, but it doesn’t seem very active. I’m wondering if the one you’re refencing is different? (It still takes me to a restricted page when I click on your link.) Thanks!

            https://www.facebook.com/groups/1422200544659811/

          • Nope, that’s a different one unfortunately! I spoke to the Admin and they said they can’t see any problem why you would have trouble getting in. What’s your Facebook profile name? I will send it to them and see if they can find you and invite you.

          • My goodness. Who knew this would be so much trouble!? I really don’t understand what’s going on. Anyhow, I’m “Jessica Shank Coppom” on FB. https://www.facebook.com/jessica.shankcoppom
            Thanks so much for your help, Melissa.

  • Brittany Crotty

    Hi, great post! How do you become apart of the blogging boards? Do you have to be invited into them?

    Thank you!!
    xoxo
    Brittany

    • Thanks Brittany! Yes, someone has to invite you to pin to the board. Look on the description of the board and see if they have instructions on how to ask to be invited, and if you don’t see any try just leaving a comment and asking to be added! Some are exxclusive but I think most will add you in!

  • thank you good post

  • Thanks for sharing this list.
