    I've just recently started looking at Pinterest, so I'm a rank newbie.

    I've found 25 or 30 group boards that claim to be open - I follow & then leave an "add me" comment where they say or message whoever appears to be the creator of the group.

    So far I've been added to 1 group board.

    Is this normal? How long does it normally take to get added to these things?

    so you got a new pinterest account with a couple of boards, a couple of followers and a couple of pins and you are wondering why no1 invites u?...geezes

    a) most group boards are dead to anyone who doesn't have viral group boards
    b) they get just as much spam from other newbies as well...guess they just ignore most of it ;-)

    What is a good step by step process for building Pinterest accounts? So far I have pinned good content from my website to my account in several boards.
    Should I focus on followers, likes, Repins, joining group boards?
    What's a good recipe? End goal is traffic to my website.

    Okay, I understand that. Is there a good, up to date guide on building your pinterest account?

    Wow, I really appreciate it. I think if you look at my overall post history you'll see that I've never asked to be spoonfed by anyone. But anyway, appreciate the discussion & insight from you.

    BTW, I'm not running a business. I just post my photography.

    posting your own photography is a business, whether you see it as that yet, doesn't really matter, eh? :)
    and if you are asking for a basic pinterest guide, that is spoonfeeding in my book.

    either way..if you do have more advanced questions, i'll have no problem answering them..or at least try to ^^
