How to add your link from Pinterest

We love seeing everyone’s projects in our challenges, so we want to help as much as we can. We want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to participate. That means, even if you don’t have a blog, some of you may have instagram or pinterest so you can still link your photos.

We have had a couple of requests for help, and as promised here are the instructions on how to link from Pinterest to the InLinkz for the challenge.
