Hi Welcome to the PBC!
I read your post and I am listing some links for you to check out on your Pinterest Journey.
From my own experience have patience when your creating your account and while your account is growing. A lot of people often want everything to happen really fast but when it comes to Pinterest in some ways slower is better. The other point I can mention and I am learning this myself is be CONSISTENT maybe one Idea Pin and one Standard Pin everyday or perhaps just one Idea Pin everyday.
I hope this helps you and if you have other questions please do comeback and ask.
Thanks for the tag @bodymindmood !
@asprokale I'll echo what Lisa mentioned, patience is important when creating content on Pinterest. This is long term and you won't see immediate results as you may on other platforms. I would add being willing to make mistakes, post on a consistent basis, and just have fun!
