Got Pinterest?

Hello Friends!
A really quick post for those of you who are on Pinterest, or should I say addicted to Pinterest? Ha!
I'm not sure about you but I have noticed that now that there are lots more of us on Pinterest that the pinning is getting a bit SLOPPY!  What I mean by this is that when an item is pinned there are many times that the original pinner is simply copying the blog/site address verses the actual post that the item is on.

Why does that matter? Well, if I want to go back to a pin to view a tutorial or view the item and it's not pinned to the actual post then that means that I am going to have to search to find it.  And that defeats the purpose of pining something, at least for me. 

Because of this I am trying to check the pin's before I re-pin them and if they link back to the overall blog then I look to see if the item is easily located.  Once I locate it then I pin it properly for myself, there have been a few times that I haven't been able to find the item so I give up and move on.

So, here is a little example of what I mean so if you would help me out and spread the word, we will all benefit from this, I promise!

****Click on the Title of the Post that has the item you want to pin before pin'ing and that will help makes sure you pin properly****

Thanks and Happy Pin'ing!
