- 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.
