A Pin in a Haystack...
Do you ever feel like you are the last person to ever figure out what is going on? Well that is how I felt yesterday. Today I feel better much better. I didn't figure this out myself, someone helped me. This is not earth shattering, this is just me being somewhat technically challenged and needing some help.
I have been using Pinterest for gathering information and also for helping out friends with their endeavors. On Etsy we have been playing a game of pin-tag. I pin your stuff, you pin mine. Anyway, I should have looked for a good tutorial on how to use Pinterest first instead of relying on my own limited experience. I could not for the life of me figure out how to find out if my blog items had been pinned. I tried searching and checked their help information and could not find anything. So I figured maybe there wasn't a way yet to check. Wrong, after whining about it on an Etsy forum a wonderful person from Sweeter Than Sweets came to my rescue and helped me out. Here is the secret way to find out if your blog has been pinned!
Just insert your blog name where mine is and it will pull up pinned items from your blog! Amazing, fabulous and what a time saver. I thought I had to search through hundreds of pins looking for my little pin. A virtual pin in a haystack! Boy did I feel dumb. But then I realized there are probably a few of you out there who are just as untechy as me, so I thought I would share. Thank you again Sweeter Than Sweets you made my day a much happier one!
