Pinterest–I suppose I’m using it differently than most.

I now have 23 boards, 480 pins, and 26 likes on Pinterest – and there are no copyright issues on any of the items that I’ve pinned.

By far, most of the images are mine to begin with.  The rest are public domain, from websites that encourage – or, at least, allow – pinning, or are used under the “fair use” provision of copyright law.

Most of my Pinterest pins are images from my Haw Creek website and blog, which provides most of our internet income, even though I spend little time on it for posts, updates or maintenance.

I doubt that we will get much of a traffic boost pinning from my own pages almost exclusively.

Where I hope to see the boost is from the repins. I figured it would be worth a try.

I still have concerns about copyright issues associated with Pinterest.  For now, at least, I’m going to shy away from pinning too far away from the nest.
