Monday & Tuesday #3 {Hybrid Post: Pins + Tutorial}

Hi My Lovely Star Fishies!

I took an extra day off! I know. Shame on me. But hey, I only got one day off (the 4th) from real world work…Well, I’m back now, and this post is a hybrid Pin + Tutorial post. Latest pins below:

My page contains my pins and will contain all credits for images so you can see where they came from and find out all about them! :)

TUTORIAL:

I know most people by now probably already know how to do this, but this is going be my tutorial. Hopefully it will be helpful to someone. The tutorial will be me showing you how to pin something from an outside website to pinterest

1. First, I’m guessing you are already signed up on the Pinterest site.

2. Go to the top drop-down menu and pick the link shown below:

3. Next, you put the button in your bookmark bar.

4. Then, visit one of your favorite sites and if you find an image you have to save and look at later or share with the world. I chose for the tutorial, an image from my blog as an example:

5. Then, go to that pin it button that you have on your bookmark bar…

6. Next, you will see a block-like layout with a sort of “catalogue” of photos/images you can choose to pin…unless there is only one image on the page. {There will be a “pin it” button link overlaying the image when you roll-over it.}

7. Click the image you want to pin. It will show you a little dialogue box like in the screenshot below. You can name it whatever you like and choose a category above it. If you want to share it on twitter as well, you have that option, too, if you signed up/linked your twitter with Pinterest.

That’s about it! I hope you enjoyed this hybrid post! Thanks followers and likers! Feel free to leave me feedback. :)

Hearts & Stars,
