Let's Take Over Pinterest With #MelanatedPins

As much as I love Pinterest, one thing that I cannot stand is typing in "Black fashion"or "Black hairstyles" and finding nothing but white women in black t-shirts and dresses with black colored hair.

Let's work together to make a change.

Hashtags have been revolutionary to streamlining content and discovering new ideas, which is what Pinterest is all about. That's why I have decided to create the hashtag #MelanatedPins to help Black bloggers and creatives share their content with people who are trying to find it. As a blogger, it can definitely feel that the blogging world is fully saturated, and that feeling of saturation and under-representation is even more present in the Black/Brown blogging community. Hopefully the #MelanatedPins movement will pick up and help Black bloggers everywhere make their mark on Pinterest.

How to get involved:
Simply add the hashtag #MelanatedPins to all of your pins concerning Black fashion, Black beauty, Black issues, DIY projects from a Black blogger, recipes from a Black foodie...I think you get the point.

I can't wait to get started and to see what everyone pins. Off to Pinterest!
(P.S. It takes Pinterest a few days to bookmark your pin under the hashtag).
