Pin It Friday – Pinning Is Good

by Susan

It’s Friday and time to Pin! Join us for another edition of Pin It Friday.

In the linky list below, you can add links directly to your pins on Pinterest OR if you do a Pin round-up on your blog, you can add that link. If you’re new to Pinterest, use our Pinterest Resource Page to get started and make new Pinterest friends.

Many of you have likely heard some of the copyright infringement talk surrounding Pinterest and such legal worries sadden us. Our Pinterest inspired image today is our lighthearted take on an unfortunately complicated issue.

Pinning is Good

Pin It

Show us your Pins! Add a few of your favorite pins from the week and then enjoy browsing through the list.

You can 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.

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.

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

Hi, Great site… I’ve pinned my 5 favorites for the week, didn’t take long. Just curious though. I used the URL to my Pinterest post but then noticed that a lot of the other Friday posts are directed to blogs, etc. Isn’t the idea to bring traffic to your Pinterest page as long as that page links to the source?

If peeps use this the right way it will turn into a very cool page where you can find the best Pinterest posts, great way for you to add quality new content to your own boards.

One of my favorite blog hops of the week! Thanks for hosting this! I haven’t heard the whole copyright infringement battle, but yikes. That doesn’t sound good at all.

“link all your sources no one gets mad”

Don’t give legal advice if you’re not a lawyer! Linking doesn’t absolve you from copyright infringement. Unwittingly pinning an image registered by the copyright office can cost you between $30,000 and $150,00 PER IMAGE, plus the plaintiff’s legal fees! This is really serious business. Not a joke.
