Very Pinteresting….

One of the hottest social media sites right now is Pinterest, and has made it easy to connect your blog posts to a specific pin.

Here’s a specific pin, which is actually my most popular pin on one of my  HowToConsign Boards! All I have done to create this image is to paste the pin’s URL into the VISUAL editing board on my blog. Automagically, the pin and its message appear below, and if you click on it, you can see it on Pinterest, and also catch a glimpse of the rest of the Board this pin comes from (in this case, the HowToConsign “Halloween with Resale Finds” Board.)

Notice that this specific pin has been REpinned almost 1900 times; using a Pinterest Board to draw traffic to your blog or web site is definitely worth the time.

Pinterest WILL ask you to sign up, but even if you don’t you can still explore this Board.

Or a learned quote or two, such as

“The trouble with quotes on the Internet is that you can never know if they are genuine.” –Abraham Lincoln

(We got the arrow with the “special characters” symbol in the toolbar (indicated with a Ω ) and we applied pink with the text color attribute. The quote style in this WordPress theme is to simply indent and italicize, which I didn’t like, so I applied Bold and Green to the text.)
