Robbie Schlosser's First Pinterest Boards

A few years ago, I had an exciting time discovering Pinterest, and all it can do.

Here is a snapshot of the Magnolia Jazz Band Pinterest page in the beginning.  CLICK it to visit and see how it’s changed.

Pinterest is a wildly popular social medium, and the more I’m discovering in Pinterest, the more lessons I take for wedding and party music.

Isn’t this always the way?  The more we learn about one subject, the more we can apply to another one.

You’ve probably discovered Pinterest already.  Compared with older online social media veterans like Facebook, and dinosaurs like email, Pinterest is a lively upstart with fresh tactics and a new perspective.

Already you can find many social media authorities leaping aboard the bandwagon.  They help us discovering Pinterest and learning the best practices for using it to meet new friends, display your passions, market your business, and buy or sell your stuff.

I’ve been following quite a few of these authorities, to view the emerging terrain from many useful angles.  Visit my Pinterest page to see some of these experts.

This morning I read a friend recommending Pinstamatic, a versatile tool for creating eye-catching “pins”.  Ultimately, that’s the name of the game, you know.

I visited the Pinstamatic website to learn more, and read their current blog post.  I found this interesting sentence:

“…as always, what separates leaders from followers is how they leverage what others consider a pastime into a value-added tool of the trade.”

That’s been my strategy — with Pinterest, and nearly everything else I’ve ever done.  From the very beginning.  It’s a lesson I learned early on.  I think it’s one of the most important I’ve ever learned.  This is the lesson:

I learn something from EVERYTHING I do.  The trick is to make it worthwhile.

All our experience always counts, whether I’m helping someone plan the music for their wedding or party, or my band is performing the music at their celebration.

Not only does what we learn help us do a great job then, and an even better job the next time, but it sets us apart from the musicians who have a bit less experience.  And that’s many of them, at least around here.

All the past experience we bring to our clients helps us work more effectively with them.  And more creatively, and we’re careful to continue learning everything we can from every new experience.

YOU too?  What else do YOU learn as you’re discovering Pinterest?
