Pinterest Popular Pins

I signed up for Pinterest a while back so I could post images from The Land of Enchantment books. New Mexico is a unique place, full of things not found in other parts of the county, so I thought it might be helpful to readers to be able to see some of the things I talk about in the books.

One of the things Pinterest does is show you which images people are “repinning,” in other words, adding to their own collection of images. What’s fascinating is seeing which images become popular.

The image of Amethyst’s eye is the clear winner. In Familiar Magic, I describe Amethyst’s eyes as violet. This image is pretty much how I pictured them.

The other one surprised me. It’s a stained glass piece by Teresa Seaton, but I’m amazed that it gets repinned at least once a day and has been for quite some time now. In Could It Be Magic, Amethyst is working on a stained glass panel depicting fall aspens, and this image looks much like how I imagined her piece.

A lot of the pins, like those from my Reylo board, aren’t surprising, since they’re images from the popular consciousness. But otherwise, I suspect popularity is pretty random. It’s fun to watch.
