Mappin Monday – new feature on Skimbaco Lifestyle
We have a new feature at Skimbaco Lifestyle – once a month I will be featuring some of my favorite travel blog posts, or more specifically, travel Pins from Pinterest from the Mappin Monday travel blogger community. Our team attended the TBD-Italy conference in Rimini, Italy, last fall, and we heard the wonderful Nienke of The Travel Tester travel blog to talk about Pinterest. I spoke in the same conference about our Instagram Travel Thursday project, and how we have been joining the traveler community together on Instagram. Light bulb went off in our heads, and we decited to team together with Nienke and do something similar on Pinterest, and Mappin Monday was born. A few months later, we have over 430 pins pinned on the map on our Mappin Monday Pinterest board. Our goal is to get many many more travel destinations pinned to our map! Starting today, I will also start featuring my monthly favorites from the board for you to read – and pin of course!
