Pinterest - Easy to Obtain, and Install on your Blog.

What is PINTEREST ? It is a Website App that allows you to create a 'Pin Board' for photos - instantly. Instead of bookmarking a photo, or Notepadding the URL, or sending yourself an email, or perhaps printing off what you want, then keeping a paper file in your office, all you have to do is click on the Pinterest icon.

Apart from the icon for your blog, there is also an Extension for your computer's Browser Toolbar, so you can also 'Pin' images to your account, from anywhere. You can invite other people to view your 'Boards' and 'Pin" or 'Re-Pin' images from their 'Boards', or contribute to your board albums. You can even have some 'boards' private - and it is addictive, but easy. I know. I've been at it all afternoon and evening!

As the Nitecruzr, Chuck, says in his RBS blog post;
"I spent more time reading the instructions, than installing the icon."

What we're referring to is the Pinterest 'Pin it' icon, a mouse-over link for the images on my blogs. Just navigate to the Pinterest website, join up with your email, verify that email when Pinterest send you an email, then, create the code script - Remember to select the 'Image Hover' option, when selecting the 'Button Type'. The actual code resembles this :-

<!-- Please call pinit.js only once per page -->
<script async defer data-pin-hover="true"

All you do then is to add it to a html/Javascript Gadget from the Layout screen on your blog, and hide it at the bottom, purely for aesthetics - save - and it's done. There's no need to add it to the template, above the </body> tag, as Pinterest Developers suggest.

When you look at any image on your blog, and mouse-over it, you'll see the little 'Pin it' icon appear.

Your account will look similar to mine -

Start saving images from all over the Internet, and have them ready to view - all in one, convenient, place !
