How to Enable Pinning from Bloglovin'

Ok, I'm sure you've all seen the news - Google Reader is Shutting Down on July 1st.  The blogging world has been in an uproar the last couple of days over it.

Frankly, I thought it was an ugly internet rumor....but it's true! Most of the blogs I follow have switched over to Bloglovin .  When we first started blogging I set up a Bloglovin account, but found that I couldn't pin to Pinterest.  So, although I did like the layout of Bloglovin, I gave up and went back to Reader.

Tonight, I found out how to enable Pinning from Bloglovin and thought I would share.  It's just a matter of changing your settings as follows -


1.  Select Account                 2.  Select Settings


3.  Scroll to the bottom and select - I don't want the frame.


I hope this saves you some grief and irritation! With this change, I'm Lovin' Bloglovin - How about you?

Hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

  3. Hi, I'm sorry but I am new to blogging and I did the directions you said to do for pinning from bloglovin, but I do not understand it. Can you explain it to me and how it works. Thanks a lot I appreciate it. Jule

    1. Hi Julie! Hope this helps - If you don't have "I don't want the frame" selected you won't be able to pin a photo to Pinterest. I pin lots of images from blogs to Pinterest for future reference. If you haven't been introduced to Pinterest yet you are going to love it! Here's a link to my Pinterest boards - http://pinterest.com/jlsumruld/boards/

      If you have any other questions or need more help, please email me at jeanette@craftyincrosby.com and I'll try and help you figure it out. I know how overwhelming it is to figure all this stuff out!

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Bloglovin is a great alternative and I've heard that Feedly is good too.

      Hope you have a Happy Easter!
