Learn how to add Pinterest to WordPress blogs by using two different techniques. Each has its pros and cons. Sadly neither is a one-size fits all sort of solution but both provide you with a quick and easy way to showcase your Pinboards.

Overwhelming Success

How would you handle success if something you make suddenly became the hottest things since Beanie Babies? Would you make the right choices? There’s one Etsian facing this dilemma and it looks like she is doing everything right. She has upped production, avoided over-selling and perhaps created an even bigger demand for her clever earrings.

Pinterest, Copyright & Image Ownership

I’m not a lawyer. I’m just someone who runs a pair of sites that deal with public domain works. I have spent numerous hours researching copyright law in the United States, England and the rest of the world. I’m not expert on the topic but I do no more than the average blogger. I enjoy Pinterest. Some of the users really make me angry in their attempts to imply ownership of someone else’s work. Some of the images ARE flagrant copyright violations. But, I do believe that participating on Pinterest is covered by fair use. I explain why and also discuss some of the other copyright issues the site has exposed. I also discuss the recent announcement from Pinterest regarding their new Terms of Service.

If you are anything like me, you are constantly trying to find free or low cost ways to promote your website, blog or shop. Free advertising for crafters and other site owners is not just the stuff of endless blog commenting, Tweeting, Pinning and Facebook updates. There’s a wonderful advertising program called Project Wonderful that I’ve been using for over two years with my sites and it has cost me virtually nothing. Spend as little or as much as your budget allows. Become a publisher and make money from your sites. Or, learn how to use your own site to fund advertising on other sites to get advertising for virtually nothing.

After all, when selling anything online that isn’t a well-known mass-produced item, it’s the product description that shares with the potential customer what it is that they will receive. A vintage magazine that I found online had a product description for a shawl that contains several ideas that I think we could all learn from.
