Did you guys miss Pin it and Do it as much as I did? It was a much needed break and I surprised myself by continuing to use my pinboards for inspiration. This marks the one year anniversary since Pin it and Do it started. If you’re new to the game, the premise is simple: Make or do the things you’ve pinned to Pinterest. You can pin things during the challenge (or even expressly for the challenge) or they can be things you’ve pinned a year ago!

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 2013. Challenge ends May 31st.
2. Report back on your Pin It and Do It success. On May 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.

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 and make the pin easy for others to find.

Sign up below and help spread the word! I’ll be using #PinitDoit on twitter:

The challenge officially starts May 1st, but feel free to get started early if you can’t wait.

Happy Pinning and Doing!

  1. Yeah–back for more pinning and doing! I actually have gotten into the habit of using pinterest all the time for meal planning/cooking. Now I just need to use it for other things.

    Yay! So excited! I’ve thought of you and your challenge every time I’ve accomplished something that I pinned. I have some great things in mind for next month so I’m raring to go!
