thank you so much Makalah, I am going to do this tomorrow. it is really late here.. and I am better with new things when not tired..
I appreciate your help! Looking forward to learning how everything works and having some fun!
My student teacher invited me to Pinterest in November, so I blame her for all the hours I spend pinning things! I went back through this thread and checked out what others were pinning--lots of great stuff! Here's me on Pinterest: Lianne Elstun (lelstun) on Pinterest
If you have any suggestions on finding the time to do all the cool things on Pinterest, let me know!
Does anyone know how to search for a person on pinterest? I can only search if they are on FB.
I just figured this out today. Type the person's name into the search box and click search. It will bring up a bunch of pins. Right under the search box, it will say Pins, Boards, People. Click on People. That's how I found my friend from work on it. Good luck!
I just recently joined Pinterest and I love it. It's a great way to keep track of those awesome things I find and want to try, and there is no end to the inspiration out there! One thing I noticed is that some people will put the link to the forum, which only lets you see the details on the item if you're a member. That's not a bad thing, as it was my incentive to join SCS after several years of just lurking here and there. If I understand correctly,the link is supposed to take you to the person's blog, where you can see details on the item and enjoy other things that the blog owner has to offer. Now when I'm finished on Facebook, I can come here and go to Pinterest and completely fritter away my evenings I'm gonna love this place.....
ladies i've been pinning like crazy! i love it. i have tons of questions. but i will start w/ my 2 biggies
1. how do i pin? not just repin.
2. how do i invite someone. my sister (not on SCS) wants to join.
thanks a bunch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would like to know how to pin from any website- someone mentioned getting a pin it link in my header.......
Also- I am now following everyone that has posted a link,.....LOL I am finding some amazing blogs and tutorials on Pintrest- I am loving this!
If I miss a day, is there a way to see older links- or do they just appear on the top if someone else re-pins them???
Shelly, if you go to the Pinterest site and click on the "about' drop down that shows up on the tool bar at the top right hand side (right by your profile pic) you will see "help" as an option. Click there and you will find all kinds of useful information, including how to install the "Pin It' button. Hope that helps!
Hi Gayla - I don't know if you got an answer to inviting someone. If not, just point at your name and a drop down list appears. Click on invite friends and you can enter multiple e-mail addresses.
Your other question was answered above.
I see that often when I click on someone else's boards... there's a "popup" at the top that says "Help *** categorize this board."
I don't know if it's because they didn't do it (is that possible) to begin with, or if it doesn't seem to "match" the pins.
You can write to them at the bottom of the 'help' page and find out more... maybe the next time I see it, I'll do it and let you know if I find out anything interesting .
franb63: If you go to "help" , in "Goodies" you'll see a Pin It Button that you can install in your toolbar. Then when you're hanging out on the internet and see something you like that you want to pin, you simply click on the "pin it" button. It will display for you all of the photos it 'sees' on that page and you click the one you want, assign it a board (or create a new board), add a description and pin it.
Once you get things going, you can "like" or "repin" others pins and even rearrange the order of your boards (remember to "save"!).
And usually if you click on a pin, it takes you to the source... or there's a link to the origin toward the right upper corner of the pin. HTH! Just play around with it and have fun
