Let’s Put a Pin in It!

What is a horse blogger to do when she can’t ride much during the Winter? Experiment with making Pinterest pins, of course!

For those of you not familiar with the platform, Pinterest is a social curation website where users visually bookmark information that can be shared with others. A Pinterest pin is a picture that is embedded with a link to a website, blog post, online store, etc . . . Ideally, a pin will catch the viewers’ attention and compel them to click on the pin to travel to the embedded site.

I’d much rather be riding more, but I must say that I am having a lot of fun with pin creation. I especially like working to create a certain “feel” to the pin by combining basic ingredients like photos, colors and fonts. I can’t say if my pins are particularly attractive to anyone else but me. I CAN say that I am enjoying myself by spending way too much time on the internet trying to create them.

You may have noticed that I’ve been designing pins to go with some of my more recent blog posts. I am also reviewing some older posts and creating Pinterest pins to accompany those as well.

Below is a sampling of pins that I recently designed. They all link to older blog posts. If you are new to this blog, reviewing the pins is a great way to see what content you might have missed. If you are a Pinterest user, you can save the pins to any of your own Pinterest boards.

Happy pinning!
