I have created all of the artwork that I want to create on my blog page. Now I want to put all of this artwork for each particular board on to my website. I’m not totally familiar with how the pinning process works so I’m going to take this slow and methodical. You’ll have the pleasure of seeing my progress.
What I’m going to do first is to upload all of my images into my media library. That way I’ll have them and I might have to make some tweaks to the actual files depending on how they look. After I’ve uploaded them I can place them where I want them (e.g. to show before and after).
The first image is my logo before I started making revisions and randomly selected from all of my boards is my new template that I’m using for the rest of the boards.
I want to make a gallery so that I can all of my boards into an easier way for people to see rather than scrolling up and down. In one fail swoop, I manage to put all of the images for each board, the items that need placement are the ones with check marks. I notice that after adding the images that the caption if added might be too much so I hold off for now on adding the captions (because I already have images of my board placed within each file). I inadvertently added one too many files (the one at the bottom, so it’s a lesson learned to a newbie blogger like myself to check the files that need to be added before adding them into the gallery). Before the final publishing I take one all last important step to make sure that the pictures below are actually pins. There’s a program (don’t ask me at this time, I don’t remember what it’s called. If you leave me a comment, I’ll find out and provide you with the name) that you can click on the the Pinterest button to save pins. They all show up and I’m ready to make my final publish. I thought I was all through and I review the “Are you ready to publish?” checklist. And there’s a suggestion to add tags – tags help users and search engines navigate your site and find your content. Add a few keywords to describe your post. I add Pinterest, pins, blogging, and WordPress. Happily satisfied, I publish my post for everyone to see. And can’t wait to start adding my newly created pins. One by one I start saving each of the new pins that I’ve created. It’s a pretty daunting task. I’ve published the post, but one thing that I notice is that all my pins have on there: Edit Post – my first blog WordPress. I’ve already pinned the pictures but I should consider renaming the name of my post so that the name of my blog shows up instead of the name of my post. Just something for me to ponder and think about for future use. Now I’m getting ready to check my Pinterest page and look to see if my new pins are there and hope they get shared. Hopefully, they point to my blog and I make the necessary revisions (if necessary).
