Following Pinterest boards in Google Reader

Pinterest, a rapidly growing social networking site, has a fun pinboard-style layout for sharing photos.  Although I am not currently an active user of Pinterest, I created an account and am experimenting with it.  You can find me at http://pinterest.com/dustinwcpa.

I don’t log in to Pinterest often, so I follow my friends’ boards in Google Reader.  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs, news websites, and other RSS feeds.  It’s my way of consuming social media content all in one place.

Subscribing to Pinterest boards in Google Reader is a simple process.  For example, to follow my Tax & Accounting board, copy the URL of the board (http://pinterest.com/dustinwcpa/tax-accounting/).  In Google Reader, click on the subscribe button and paste the URL into the box.  Then, type “rss” at the end of the URL and click on the add button.

Some of the accounting related boards I have subscribed to are Jody Padar, Bill Sheridan, FreshBooks, and the CPA firm of Alpern Rosenthal.

    Hey Dustin,

    Thanks for the info. I didn’t know that you could follow Pinterest boards through rss.

    I’m also interested to know if the accounting boards end up creating any business. It seems like Pinterest wouldn’t be the greatest way to drum up business but I guess it is possible. I’d love to hear an update in the future if you do end up getting any good traffic from your Pinterest experiment.
