Since I haven't been producing much, mostly teaching, I thought I'd keep Pinning. But I'm not too clear about what to add in the description box. Sometimes I forget and don't add anything and code comes through. Sometimes I copy and paste the signature, thinking that after all, that's the point of having shops. Any guidelines?
(After Pinning anything from the Walking Dead, of course. And don't anyone dare give away any spoilers. I know some one with a cross bow but his eyes are his best weapon.)
If you don't have the time or inclination for search out shop links, you could do something like "name of shop @ venue".
It's great of you to take the time to pin. I have the best of intentions, but seem to forget most of the time. One of my goals for this year is to get more involved with Pinterest, both my own boards and our JAC board.
It's a great promotional tool that we should be using to promote JAC and our shops.

when I use my own photo's on pinterest I post the link or what pinterest places there and some extra text, if it is empty I place the link and some extra text there myself. When I pin somebody else's pin and there is already text coming with it I don't change it, especially not when in contains the pinners original text.
this little text clip is from Nicole Hanna's website.
DO NOT pin a product to your Do It Yourself or DIY board, unless the product or design is clearly intended for use by others. Posting a product or image online is not equivalent to “fair use”. and most products are intended to be purchased ready-to-use, not pinned as ready-to-make. For the sake of etiquette, rename your DIY boards as “Inspiration Boards”, instead, and draw creativity from the source, but do not mimic the source, unless so intended by the creator.
DO personalize the description on all pins. You can do this from laptops, desktops and mobile device apps. When an item is re-pinned, the description with it (from the previous or original pinner) carries over to the current pin. For instance, I pinned an image of a beautiful photograph without having realized the description read “I’m totally going to remove the watermark, print it myself and hang this in my room!” So… theft, essentially. And there was no indication the description wasn’t my own! So read pin descriptions carefully and edit accordingly. More importantly, research the source, and edit to reference it.
