Pinterest is so much more than just a pretty interface. While the UI (user interface) does boast a beautiful display of amazing visuals that you can mindlessly scroll through all day long, Pinterest is an extremely powerful tool that can drive potential readers back to your website. And we’re talking masses. Ready to get started? Here’s a 5-step process to get your Pinterest author page up and running:

Step 1: Claim Your Username
Just like all your other social networks, you want to be sure to claim your Pinterest URL. Your Pinterest name will read as www.pinterest.com/username. Try to keep this username consistent with your Twitter and Facebook handle names, so your audience knows exactly where to find you.

Step 3: Create Interesting Boards
