Host Becca from Southern Mess Moms is also featured on Fan Friday today!

Here is your week long challenge. . .with a prize!

Your challenge is a Pinterest Scavenger Hunt! The ABCs of blogging

If you don’t have a Pinterest account, get one! You’ll be addicted in no time. It’s like an online bulletin board.
If you really don’t want one, don’t freak out. . .there’s another option!

Pinterest Scavenger Hunt Rules/Guidelines

1.Create a Pinteresting Bloggers board on your Pinterest account. Pin the badge above and make it your cover photo!
2. Pin pictures to the board that represent the things on the list below.
3. Be sure to follow all boards for all three of your Hosts (we will follow you back)
4. I would love it if you could look at each of the three hosts blogs and find at least one thing to pin for your list!
5. Use a VERY CLEAR description for every pin! YOU MUST LINK IT BACK TO THE BLOG YOU FOUND IT ON!
6. Link up to the Pinteresting Bloggers at the end of this post. Be sure that the link goes to your Pinterest Board!!
7. Bite your nails nervously as other members of this Hunt view and judge your pins! Be sure to comment which ones are your favorites!
8. Please, post your entry by midnight August 2, 2013! August 11, 2013!

Please check out your hosts blogs for Pin ideas:

ABCs of Blogging
The object of this Scavenger Hunt is to obtain a variety of helpful posts, tips and tricks for bloggers to help make blogs better (one for each letter of the alphabet)! You can pin from anywhere and everywhere! The more variety the better! 

Here are some examples. . .

(Look at my board and see the Pins)

Okay, for all of you Non-Pinterest users:

You can simply create a post/page and add all of the links you find there. Then share a link to that page in the comments. (See..you can participate…it just isn’t as fun as digging through Pinterest…you really don’t know what you are missing out on as a blogger!)


One winner will be chosen, from all boards who have a complete list, via random selection by Inlinkz!


The winner will receive the awesome, amazing, EPIC prize of having their button/ad run on each of the three hosts pages for 1 month for FREE! THAT IS A $50 VALUE!

I  cannot wait to see what all of you guys come up with! Just think of all of the informative posts we are ALL about to read! That is a prize in itself in my opinion! I mean really, we have a ton of people doing research on how to make our blogs better! This is going to be amazing!

Want to keep up with what the Host and Co-hosts are posting to their ABCs? Be sure to check out the Pinteresting Bloggers – ABCs of Blogging board! Once this hunt is over I will open the board to anyone and everyone, just ask for an invite 🙂

Don’t forget to share this Hunt with your friends! Tweet about it, share it on Facebook…and of course PIN IT! 🙂

    Hi! As I told Southern Mess Mom, I’ll admire your pinning from afar. 🙂 Twitter I get and use all the time; I’m crap at Pinterest!
