Have you seen this pin on Pinterest yet? It’s been floating around recently, and since I’ve been toying around with writing a follow up to my Pinterest Etiquette post this was the kick in the pants I needed.

  1. I’d love to add “Be conscious of your repins.” BEFORE you repin, click through a pin and make sure it is linked properly. If it isn’t, take a minute and look for the source. If you can’t find it, don’t repin it!

    1. This is something I really need to work on. When it comes to “originally” pinning, I make sure to go through to the source. Not from a re-posting site like Design*Sponge or Curbly. But as far as repinning I am a bit lazy with it. Thank you for the reminder!

  2. Thank you for the clarification. Some of us out here were not aware of the ins and outs of this wonderful phenomenon called Pintrest. We appreciate your help. PS…I really DID want to pin your graphic but wasn’t sure where the pin was to do it so I will not. I will be happy to share the info with my friends as I can just bet alot of us are doing it incorrectly. I myself find it time consuming to go through tons of pins only to find it was for a product that someone is actually selling. But the fun outweighs the effort however. 🙂
