I travel the internet regularly reading blog posts and looking for exceptional content to share. One thing I commonly find is that so many bloggers forget to add a photo to their articles.  I can not tell you how many times I’ve found an article I really liked and wanted to pin it on Pinterest. You need to include a photo with your article in order for it to be pinned to Pinterest. If you are a blogger and do not have any kind of sharing buttons on your website you may be wondering how anyone could possibly pin one of your blog posts. 

Pinterest has whats called a “Pin It” button.  The Pin It button is placed in your web browser. When you come across a great article, video, picture, etc  you want to share, you simply click on the Pin It button and add it to one of your boards on Pinterest. Pinterest is very popular. It is an exceptional resource for shopping, recipes, content, fun DIY ideas, parenting articles and so much more! People pin content all day long. So before you click publish on your blog post be sure sure to add a quality picture. I like to use my own but sometime’s when i’m in a crunch I’ll check out the pictures available on
