A: On the top right menu bar, click [Add -> Add a board]. You can create your own board name such as ‘wedding ideas’, ‘party favors’, etc. Next choose the category the board fits into such as ‘wedding ideas’ would be categorized under the category ‘wedding + events’.
A: There are a couple ways to do this. You can go to the menu bar at the top right of the Pinterest page and click [Add -> Add Pin]. From here, you can enter the URL of the website image and click ‘Pin it”.
A: You can look for certain types of images by clicking on the ‘Everything’ link and selecting one of the 18 categories provided such as gifts, food + drinnk, travel, DIY, kids, etc. Another option is to typing in the search field specifically what you are interested in such as ‘flower arrangements’ or ‘Audrey Hepburn’.

A: The pinterest staff has recently added this feature. Go to [Your user name -> Your Boards]. This should produce all of your boards. There is a ‘Rearrange’ button in the top right corner. Click that button, move your boards in the order you want, then click save. It’s as easy as that.
Q: How do I delete a pin or a board?
A: For either a board or a pin, you should see an ‘edit’ button when you hover over the image. Click ‘edit’ and then ‘delete (pin or board)’ in the new window that appears.
A: To add a ‘follow me on Pinterest’ or a ‘pin it’ button to your site or blog, go to
[About -> Goodies]. From here, you can select the type of button you want. Once you select it, the embedded code will appear. Copy the code, then (I’m speaking to wordpress users because that’s what I am) add it to your widgets. Within wordpress dashboard, go to ‘widgets’, then select a text widget to add to your sidebar (or where ever you want it) and paste the embedded code in the text area of your widget.
