Pin It Friday – Link Up Your Favorite Pins

by Susan

Pinterest is fabulous.

If you’ve given in to the temptation and started using Pinterest, you already know how awesome it is. But if you’re new to this visual bookmarking craze, use our Pinterest Resource Page to get started.

To help you continually find and share awesome Pins from your blogging friends, we’re starting this new weekly blog carnival called Pin It Friday where you can add a couple of your favorite pins from the week.

Feel free to add a link to one of your Pins that is based on your own content AND add another link to one of your Pins that links to someone else’s website. Make sense?

Here I’ll show you…

We love this pretty picture of Olivia dancing that we published a few weeks ago.


Pin It

And we have Pinned that original post at

So in the Linky below, we’ll add the url
and the name “Dance Like No One is Watching.”

I’m also going to add a second entry in the linky list for one of my favorite Pins that I discovered during the week. It is a Butterfly Lollipop Kids Craft.

Get It? Okay, now add a couple of your Pins… and then enjoy browsing and clicking your way through the list. Tell all your friends to link up, on Twitter use hashtag #PinItFriday

Thumbnail Linky

Pinterest doesn’t allow Linky Tools to automatically pull the image, so to use the thumbnail linky, first download the image to your computer and then use upload from File.

Basic Linky

If you don’t want to add an image with your link, use this linky…

Remember to tweet out and tell all your friends to get pinning and link up here. Use hashtag #PinItFriday
