Candid Writer on Pinterest

Well who would have thought there was already someone called candid writer on Pinterest, but The Candid Writer was free so that's my page where you can find me. Aside from Pinterest being a great idea for anyone, website or not.. I wanted to use it to give you a little more insight into things that I like personally and about me in general. So, with that said, it's not about books, SEO, traffic, monetization or tips, my Pinterest boards are about getting to know me.

If you're already on Pinterest and I hope you are, check out my boards and I'd love to see yours too.
