Why can't I find my pins and boards on Pinterest?

Why can't I find my pins or my boards when I use the search on Pinterest? Do I need a follower to be considered a serious pinner :-) ? I believe other people can see them since I have 3 repins but I find it odd not being able to find them using the search feature.

Mouse over your name in the top right. A drop down box will appear. Click "boards" or "pins" and you should see them.

Have you tried logging out and searching? (Can you search when logged out?) Maybe it just doesn't show you your own pins in search.
Thank you for your answer, but what I meant is that I can't find them when I log out and I do a search like the way I do when I want to find other people items.

From my impression, you neef to have plenty of followers to be recognized on Pinterest. It doesn't pay off for me at all. However, wanelo.com has produced some good results for me, even without followers.
Thank you Sandra! I will try wanelo.com too.
