Joining: Pin It and Do It: A Pinteresting Challenge

This is a challenge hosted by Trish from Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity. This challenge is all about using that inspiration we store on Pinterest and then might be forgotten. I often use Pinterest for recipes and sometimes I even have a Pinterest week where I will mainly cook from there. But this challenge sounded like fun so I am in! I will be joining on the Pinterested level.

Here are the details copied from Trish her post:

Pin It and Do It: A Pinteresting Challenge 

The Details:
1. To participate you will choose your level and then make (or do) that amount of pins during May 2012. Challenge ends May 31st. (can be new pins or old pins...doesn't matter)
2. Report back on your Pin It and Do It success. Ideally this will come in the form of a blog or tumblr post. Or you can post about it on Facebook or Flickr if you don’t have a blog or tumblr. Or create a board on Pinterest for this challenge. If none of the above, report your success in the Wrap-Up Post comments.
3. Anyone is welcome to join. If you need an invite to Pinterest, let me know your email address and I’ll send an invite.

The Levels: 
Timid Pinner: 1-3 Pins
Pinterested: 4-7 Pins
Pin Obsessed: 8+ Pins

Some Pinterest Etiquette and Courtesies:
-- If you create a pin from a post, make sure you are pinning the true URL of the post and not the main website so folks can easily find the link again.
--When you create a pin, try to include the website in the description of the pin.
--Do not include the entire recipe or instructions in the pin description.
--If you embed a pinned picture on your own blog, make it clear that it is not your original picture
--a link back to the original blog post is always appreciated.

And other little tidbits...this does not have to be a food or crafting challenge. Saw an interesting photography lesson? Click! An outfit you'd love to put together? Yup! Organizing idea for around the house? Go for it! A workout Regiment? Kick butt! Really this challenge is endless--you just need to tell us what you pinned and what you did. Make sure to note the original pin wherever you complete your wrapup (or if you do progress reports) to give the originator credit.

  1. Yay! I'm so glad that you've decided to join. Figured it might also be able to provide some content for us Weekend Cooking folks. Happy Pinning and doing! ;)
