To Pin or not to Pin, that is the question!

Prompted by Jill at Nice Piece of Work I have been investigating the question of adding a Pin It button to my blog- I have discovered this is not easily done. Why I hear you ask? Well, the answer appears to be quite simple. I am on WordPress.com and the plug in option required to add Pinterest is available via WordPress.org. The difference. it would seem, is to do with web hosting. Currently I do not have an add plugin option which is what is needed to do this easily!

Now, just at the moment I am not in a position either emotionally or financially to make the move across therefore I offer this solution.

If you are moved to pin something from my blog (I will be very honoured if you do)  then you will need to do this from Pinterest by selecting the ‘add from a website option’ or by adding the button to your browser so wherever you are on the web you can pin at will!

They support chrome, firefox, safari and internet explorer 10.0

This link will tell you how 

If you know different then please impart  your expertise right here!

Thank you!

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.

  1. I have a Pinterest button at the bottom of my blog post and am on wordpress.com. Folks can pin your photos from there. Is that what you mean? Or do you mean the hovering Pinterest symbol that appears when you hover over a photo?

  2. Lucie how add you add yours then? I’m stumped! My theme does not have a plugin option on the dashboard.

  3. Obviously that should say how did you add yours!?
