And like any good Pinterest fanatic knows, where it comes to getting your content pinned, the secret to success is high quality, eye-catching photos. Here are several posts that will help you create magic with your camera and become a Pinterest superstar:

Today’s Task

  1. Leave a link directly to your Pinterest account below.
  2. Follow at least two people ahead of you in the Linky on Pinterest and re-pin at least one of their photos.

Remember that “talking” on Pinterest works just like Twitter.  If you want to get someone’s attention, use the @ sign in the comment section of a pin.  For example, you could re-pin a photo and in the comments type,

Hey @SITSGirls! I’m loving this Blogger to WordPress tutorial.  It’s just what I needed!

You can also use hashtags (#) when pinning in order for content to be found by certain topic areas.  Here’s another example:

Definitely going to be working on this #DIY #Kidscraft with my little ones this weekend. Can’t wait to get started!

Now go. And be Pinterest beautiful.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you
