Welcome to the re-launch of the Retro Re-pin Party!
We have some exciting things happening this week with the Retro Re-pin Party. You may have noticed some new blog names in your reminder email and in the list below. That’s because we’re changing things up a bit and have brought some new hostesses on board to re-launch the party!
First off, since many of you are new (welcome!), we wanted to explain a bit about the purpose of the Retro Re-pin Party. The idea for this party is a quick, weekly link party where you can share some of your older (or “retro”) pinned blog posts and give them some new exposure while growing your Pinterest reach. We all have so many great things in our archives, so we wanted to give them a place to shine again!
The other benefits to linking up Pinterest pins is that it’s super quick to click and re-pin another post (versus visiting a blog, commenting, and then pinning), and you each gain some reach on Pinterest twice over - once from the re-pin to another person’s board, and a second time with the new smart feed algorithms that give priority to displaying pins that have a higher number of re-pins. (And don’t worry, you can link up your new stuff too, but don’t be afraid to dig out the retro stuff - as long as the pins are new to the party, we’d love to see them!)
