So my friends, to avoid this kind of Pinterest disappointment, follow these three quick and easy steps to better repinning:
1. Always click on the pin! Sometimes pages aren't there anymore, the link is wrong, or it simply isn't as described. Just take two seconds, click, and if it works and it looks like something you want to hang on to, REPIN.
2. If it is a recipe, click on the pin and check the COMMENTS section of the post. If there are no comments, then it is a gamble but usually there are and they can be super helpful and honest. If 20 people write and say they just can't get that no-knead bread to rise, chances are it is not a great recipe. There may also be tips on how to make the recipe better or more healthy so it is a win-win.
3. If it is something you would like to buy, click the link to see if it goes to a store, if it is still available, and if it is in your price range. Sometimes I will just repin something because I like the photo or just want something similar BUT if it is something I am pinning because I would really like to own that exact thing, I click first.
Do you have a favorite "repinning" tip? I would love to hear it! Happy Pinterest-ing! xo
