How To Embed a Pinterest Pin into a Blog Post

Pinterest Board

So I am a tad bit addicted to Pinterest. The creative ideas and amazing images found there are enough to get even the smallest of creative juices flowing. I like to peruse the site and gather ideas for crafts or home decor that I wish I had the time to attempt. I can find photography ideas, recipes, quotes or even childhood memories. It is typically the last thing I do after climbing into bed at night. I go through all of the pins on my phone before laying down to tell my husband goodnight, say my prayers, and drift off to sleep. Anyways, now that the visual of my bedtime routine is out of the way, I wanted to add to the last tutorial on How-to Pin on Pinterest. Thus, now that we have pinned our favorite items, we need to share with others through our blog. This is so super easy! Here we go!
