Pinterest to Real Life: How it works

pinterest to real life 2014 buttonIt's been nine long months since we last linked up for Pinterest to Real Life, and I finally decided it was time to bring back to life the beloved monthly feature. Way back in September of 2011, I started hosting a monthly link-up to encourage all of us to not only bring our pins to reality, but to share our successes (and failures) with each other as well.

Now that Simple Homemade is no longer publishing new content, it's time for Pinterest to Real Life to be reestablished, right here at Gidget Goes Home. You can also keep track of all our link-ups by following my Pinterest to Real Life board.

Is one of your goals for the new year to be more creative? Do something with your pins? Put to use all the inspiration that you find in magazines, around the blogosphere, or directly from Pinterest?

That's what Pinterest to Real Life is all about. Let's start moving from consumption to production, from inspiration to creation.

Pinterest to Real Life :: Join us!

Here's how it works:

1. Find inspiring things. Pin them to your boards.

2. Take those project ideas and make, do, create, cook, style, decorate, bake, etcetera to your heart's content.

3. Blog about what you did with your pins. Your successes, your failures, your new favorites.

4. Come back to GGH during the first week of the month {as close to the 1st as I can}, and link up your blog post. {Not a blogger? That's okay! Just leave a comment telling us what you did.}

5. Sign up for my newsletter (new this year!) where I might share extra Pinterest project updates and tips on getting the most out of your Pinterest experience.

6. Post updates anytime on Instagram or Twitter on your projects with the hashtag #pinteresttoreallife.

That's it! So come on back tomorrow for our first link up of the year.
