Business of Blogging with Pinterest

This post is for fellow bloggers out there.  I wanted to get some feedback on the business of blogging and Pinterest. I have read from several bloggers how Pinterest has increase traffic to their blog.  I remember reading this post from Audrey of Putting me Together that a big portion of traffic to her site is directed from Pinterest.  

That got me thinking, what is the best use of my time when it comes to blogging?  Granted I know not everyone blogs to get rich and it's a great hobby and an awesome way to connect with people that have the same passion as you.  

For me, my blog is hobby first and earning some money is more a fringe benefit.  However, with only 24 hours a day that I need to work, take care of my family and myself that leaves me with little time left.  I do make some money when you click on the links for things I link up to (not enough to live off on, just enough to buy lunch once a month).  I don't get a ton of companies reaching out to me to pay me to evaluate their goodies or receive free goodies. I have accepted that but I don't want to waste my time going in circles either.  I probably spend way too much time online each night reading a lot of blogs and leaving comments.  

I just recently learned that there is now Pinterest for business and started creating boards and pins.  I am probably doing the most inefficient way to repin all my outfits by each post onto my new account.   I started with most recent and I am only in mid March.  I probably won't go through all my posts since that's about 3 years worth of posts.  You can follow me here.  There's not a whole lot there yet because it's a pain in the you know what to add pins.   Do you know a quick way to transfer pins from one account to another?  

As a blogger, do you feel that Pinterest have help grow your blog?  If you do, I would love to hear what type of pins drives the the most traffic.  What social media site do you find is the most beneficial to you to increase blog traffic?

In my desire to grow the blog traffic, here's 3 ways that I've worn this floral skirt for the office that I will pinning.
