October is right around the corner which also means the holidays are going to be here soon. If your Pinterest boards are overflowing with goodness to be made, I hope you’ll join us for the October edition of Pin It and Do It.
New to the Pin It and Do It Challenge? No problem! 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. The only caveat is the item must be completed in October.
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 and August):
1. To participate you will choose your level and then make (or do) that amount of pins during October 2012. Challenge ends October 31st.
2. Report back on your Pin It and Do It success. On October 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.
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 October 1st but feel free to get an early start if you can’t wait.
Hurrah!! Happy Pinning…and Doing!
