From the Desk Sara Burnett, www.burnettsboards.com:
Bitchless Bride is on a quest to toughen me up, and so I’m here to deliver a rant of my own about crappy Pinterest pinners.
So if you pin, listen up.
You like inspiration boards. I make inspiration boards. What that should mean is that I spend A LOT of time using Pinterest to put together beautiful wedding ideas, just for you. What that really means is that I spend a lot of time uploading to Google images and tracking down a beautiful shot because you pinned it incorrectly.
See… giving credit where credit is due is really important, in life, and in the blogosphere. So when I find a picture I love and click though and it goes to one of the following:
- the wrong blog because you are high jacking pins to get more traffic (by the way - @herblog, I filed a complaint against you!)
- the blog’s homepage because you didn’t click on the post’s permanent url
- the image’s url instead of the post’s url
It makes me crazy.
And I know I’m not the only one. You’re making Pinterest a less inspiration place for all of us.
It’s really not that difficult to pin something. Here’s how:
You’re on a beautiful bridal inspiration blog’s homepage, cruising around. You see something you like. You pin it.
Ok, let’s try again.
You’re on a beautiful bridal inspiration blog’s homepage, cruising around. You see something you like. You click on the post’s title which then takes you to its page. You go up into your toolbar and click ‘pin it’ and write a cute/funny label with lots of exclamation points.
Let’s all of us try a little harder to ‘pin properly.’ It’s not difficult, trust me, I do it all the time.
