How to Make Money with Pinterest – Free Mini Course

I love Pinterest.  I can lose many hours on that site.  I thought I knew how to pin pretty well, but I learned a lot from Kristin Larsen’s mini course ‘Pinterest Presence Mini Course‘.

I know I am not alone with these feelings.  If you are following a similar path let’s connect.  I will be updating this site with valuable work-from-home resources as and when I find them.

Yesterday, I upgraded to WordPress with  It’s too early to know if I would recommend GoDaddy yet but I thought a twelve month package including email for around $100 was a good idea so I’m willing to give it a try.

Today I signed up with and – both are free.
