Follow CatholicPinner on Twitter

This week’s board came to my attention in the combox of our last “Board of the Week” feature (it pays to comment!). The Saints is just one of the many amazing Pinterest boards created and curated by Tracy Reed, a Catholic homeschooling mom of four girls. All of Tracy’s boards are creative, eye-catching and filled with incredible resources and The Saints is no exception. Pinned from a variety of sites, Tracy’s board is the perfect tool for any parent, teacher, or student who loves creatively learning about the lives of the saints. Be sure to follow all of Tracy’s boards for terrific pins that will have you learning and loving Pinterest more than ever!

And here’s this week’s tip of the week from Allison Girone of the Catholic Pinterest Group Board who has kindly agreed to offer a weekly pointer for us on how to use some best practices to enjoy and effectively employ Pinterest:

Pinterest has a feature to help your blog block pins, if you so wish. Click on Help in the About drop-down menu on Pinterest. Scroll down to the “Linking to your blog or website” header. Select the “What if I don’t want images from my site to be pinned?” option. Copy the code and paste it into your website’s code. Now if a user attempts to copy your images, they’ll see the following message: “This site doesn’t allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!”.

If you’re a Catholic using Pinterest, please drop a link in the comments below to share your boards. Also, I’d love to hear about why you love Pinterest and how you think this latest craze might be used to spread the Good News.
