Verify your blog on Pinterest
Verifying your blog on Pinterest makes you look official, and you can see your analytics: how many people you reach, how many times you’ve been repinned, etc.
Also, when you pin your button to Pinterest, please please please pin the POST, not the BLOG.
The URL above should look like this: http://lechaimontheright.blogspot.com/2013/08/11-lists-of-11-books-new-series.html NOT this: http://lechaimontheright.blogspot.com/
Adding “You may also like these posts”.
Most are created with LinkWithin. It’s free, easy, requires no sign up, and is a great way to get traffic to your other posts!
Pin It hover button
Making free printables for your blog
Creating post pictures for Pinterest (like the picture above)
Use Picmonkey. Just play around with it. 🙂
Adding blog button with drop box
Add a signature to your blog
Create a signature using a signature creating site, or Picmonkey. To make a transparent background, save it as .png instead of .jpg
Additional tips for bloggers:
1. Get rid of the “word verify” thing. It’s annoying. If you have to delete some spam comments, then so be it. 🙂
2. Don’t make your side bars too cluttered.
