Pinning is pretty easy. You can link to a website or upload an image. Or you can install the Pin It button from Pinterest.

Pinterest will grab the web address anytime you pin content, so you don’t have to worry about crediting the original source. After you’ve grabbed an image, your next step is to assign it to a board and add a caption, and you’re done.

It’s better to create boards that are narrow in focus. If you have fifty boards on very tight subjects like social media tools, 20s silent movies, Seattle micro breweries, you are more likely to catch the attention of someone who shares your interest.
