Want to know a [not so] secret blogging tip? Pinterest is amazing for blog traffic. Seriously, if a post gets slapped on that beautiful form of social media, your views will sky rocket. I've found some of my favorite blogs via Pinterest. I'm sure you've had similar experiences, too.
So in between pinning amazingly chocolatey treats and dapper men in suits, why not make the most of Pinterest's awesomeness?
What are some of your favorite blogs? Chances are, some are on the small-ish side. Wouldn't it be great if more people knew about them? Think how encouraging another follower is to bloggers!
With that thought in mind, I present to you....
The point of this link-up is to share the very best of blogs that might not be getting the most recognition. It will help notify people of similar taste about your favorite blogs, increase traffic to those blogs, and give you an excuse to peruse archives. :) What could be better?
Here's how it works....
1.) Choose a minimum of 5 smaller blogs to pin from. For the purposes of this link-up, we're saying 'smaller' is 300 followers or less. Again, minimum is 5, but there is no limit!!
2.) Create a Pinterest board for this challenge. You can title it whatever you want, but please include the image above, with a link to this post. It's all about spreading the word! :)
3.) Choose at least one favorite post from each blog, and stick that darlin' writin' on Pinterest!!
4.) Check back here on September 28 to link-up your Pinterest board! Then, stick around for awhile to check out everyone's pins. You just might find a new favorite read!
So, what do you think, guys?? I'm excited!! Remember, just because you must choose a minimum of 5 blogs and 1 post each, that is by no means the limit! Feel free to pin as much as you want, just make sure each blog has 300 followers or less!

Thanks guys! I'll see you on September 28. :) Happy pinning!
