Trying to figure out how to track your blog or website’s content on Pinterest?  This great post from Mashable offers some answers.  {Be sure to check out Erin’s boards on Pinterest for great color ideas, typography inspiration, and other design information.}

Confession:  Finding images for posts is my nemesis.  I am terrible at it … and often end up going without one on my personal blog or asking Erin to help find one for these posts.  So, you can imagine my glee at reading this post from Author Media about find the right stock images.  Excellent suggestions and information.

Are you subscribed to Boost Blog Traffic?  Yes, you should be.  Genius information presented with just the right amount of wit and wisdom.   We both loved this post that emphatically states posting every day is a “silly strategy.”   C’mon, admit it, you have been waiting for someone to say that, haven’t you?
