Pinterest Friday Numero Veintidos

This week I’m inspired to share with you some of the vast knowledge and information I have found on Pinterest.  If you are a blogger or online retailer you will like these.  If you’re none of those things then, I don’t know, maybe get something to drink and go to the bathroom and when you come back I will be finished talking.

This article from Copyblogger (one of my favorite sites about blogging, my other fave is ProBlogger, but that fact is irrelevant to this conversation) is called, “56 Ways to Market Your Business on Pinterest.”

And this article, “How to Pin from Facebook,” is written in German.  So here’s the translation, which you must read with a German accent….If you want to pin a picture directly from Facebook.. 1. Install the “Pin it”-Bookmarklet 2. Click on the Facebook picture you want to pin 3. Right-click and choose “view image” 4. Make sure the .jpg-URL is shown in your in your browsers address bar. 5. Pin it! :)

 

And this hint from Karen, The Graphics Fairy, rocked my world.  She shows how to find a source using just the image.  I had no idea you could do that!

And Mom Blog Magazine wrote an article on ways to make money from your blog.  I have not mastered this yet, but I’m open to ideas!  Plus the woman in the picture looks so happy, it must be good!

Lastly, he’s one for those of you that just came back from the bathroom and I’m still here.  It’s just a cool idea that has nothing to do with growing blogs.  This idea comes from Completegarden’s Weblog.  How to make a wasp trap for free.  I am definitely trying this.

There’s so much incredible information out there.  That’s what is so great about Pinterest…you can easily find it again when you need it.

If you need a Pinterest invite let me know!  I’ll be happy to send you one.

  5. Has anyone actually figured out how to pin from facebook? I don’t see the view image option and if you open image source pinterest say “can’t pin from non-html page”

  6. Just tried it – worked perfectly for me. Are you left-clicking on the picture to enlarge it first? Then right-clicking to see “view image”? That’s what I did, and I was able to pin the image without any trouble at all! So awesome!

  7. I USED to be able to pin from Facebook by using the ‘view image’ technique’ but they apparently caught on because now it doesn’t work any more. :-( I was hoping that this link had a new idea. :-( The only way that I know for SURE works is to right click on the image and “save image as” (I usually save to desktop). Then you can upload the image from your desktop to Pintrest by clicking on the Add button. Choose ‘Upload Image’ and you’re all set. A bit of a pain but at least it’s a way to pin things that you REALLY like.
