My sister Lisa and I have just entered the world of Pinterst. I can easily see why it has gained such popularity and how it can become so addictive.
There are some things about Pinterest I haven't figured out yet. When you write your description many say you are suppose to try to use all 500 characters you are allowed using as many keywords as you can. But yet some pins at the very top of the pages are using only 1 or 2 words.
Some say use hashtags (#) like you would in Twitter but others say that is totally unneccisary. Maybe it all comes down to personal choice.
The search option is still a mystery to me. Sometimes only a few items show up when I know there should be pages.
As you can see I'm not an expert so this is not a tutorial on Pinterest just a simply Q&A.
I have seen many Etsy users doing both, which is also what I do. But, I try not to bombard Pinterest with my own stuff. I have a board just for my own stuff that I add to as I add new things to my site. Here's a simple screen shot:

I love helping out my fellow Estians too. I enjoy picking a theme or color and searching for beautiful, handmade items to promote. Make sure if you do this that it does correctly link back to them and you have their name represented in the description.
