I’ve revamped several of my blogs the past month. I have been very happy with the way blogs have worked and haven’t seen a need to fix or change anything. I think I have been a little too complacent with the status quo and was surprised to see there are several plugins that I really like and need. The advent of social media has created a new wave of plugins and some of them are really good.
One of my blogs is a very busy craft site and is image heavy. I sort of ignored Pinterest for a while until I noticed in my stats a LOT of traffic was being f=driven to my site from Pinterest, I first used a Pinterest button plugin that added a button just below my post titles and that was “okay”.
I recently discovers another plugin that does exactly what I want it to do:Pinterest Pin It Button For Images
Pinterest Pin It Button For Images adds a mouse over hover of Pinterest logo to images on your site ( You can configure to NOT show up as well). When visits click on the image they are automatically taken to their Pinterst account and they can even choose which image to use from the page to post.
It is a TEENY bit tricky to configure. You need to input how many pixels the content area of your blog is – this just sets where there Pinterest logo will sit on your images just play with the default values til you get what you like. I like the image to hover on the far left.
