It’s back! It’s back!! After a FANTASTIC first round of Pin It and Do It Pinteresting Challenge, I’ve decided that I can’t wait all the way until October for the next round so here we are! I hope that you’ve got some undone things pinned that need doing!
If you missed #PinItDoIt Round 1, no worries. The challenge is simple: Make something(s) you pinned on Pinterest. Doesn’t matter if you pinned it last year or yesterday–and no one is going to split hairs if you pin something just so you can check it off for the challenge. Only counts if done in August.
If you’re foggy on the purpose of Pinterest, I briefly discuss in the Round 1 intro post. Of course if you have questions, ask away! And to give you more of an idea of how you can use Pinterest, check out my Pinterest Boards.
Pin It and Do It: A Pinteresting Challenge
The Details (shamelessly the same as May):
1. To participate you will choose your level and then make (or do) that amount of pins during August 2012. Challenge ends August 31st.
2. Report back on your Pin It and Do It success. On August 1st I’ll post a linky for you to link up. 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.
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 and make the pin easy for others to find.
Sound like fun? Totally stress-free y’all. And admit it–some of you have been collecting pins just for this challenge, right? (ya, me too).
Sign up below and I hope you’ll help me spread the word. I’ll be using #PinitDoit on twitter. Starting lines goes up on August 1st but feel free to get an early start if you can’t wait.
Happy Pinning! And Doing!
