The time has come for a new Pintester Movement, and the time has also come for pine cones, peppermint, Santas, angels, snowmen, and all things Christmas! (I know it seems early, but hold down your gag reflexes and stick with me for a minute here.)
This time, we’re doing a Christmas-themed movement! We’re all making Christmas tree ornaments! I know some of you don’t celebrate Christmas, but come on– buy in, here. Also, if you don’t want to keep your ornament, I have a solution for you…
As an added bonus for this Pintester Movement (and if you don’t want to keep the beautiful piece of Christmas art you create), Jodee from the Cheeseblarg is collecting ornaments for her very first Christmas tree! She invites you to send them to her for arrival ON OR BEFORE November 21. (That means Jodee needs to have it in her mailbox by the 21st.) If you send your ornament to her with a note of your Etsy store, blog address, or whatever, she will put your ornament and a link to your site in a Cheeseblarg post to go up around Thanksgiving! Double blog links for you– boom. Incidentally, this is Jodee’s first Christmas tree because she’s Jewish, so maybe don’t send, like, Jesus in a manger or a sequinned swastika, ok?
You can mail your ornament to:
PO Box 1078
Helena, MT 59624
The Pintester Movement is open to all bloggers, no matter which platform you’re on. (GoMighty works, too, or whatever you’ve got, as long as you can get a link to your post!)
Here’s how it works:
1. Pick any ornament tutorial pin from Pinterest and try it out! (If you’re in need of ideas, Jodee has a Pinterest board dedicated to the ones she likes.)
2. Write up a blog post about the test! Your blog post must include:
- A link to the original blog where the pin tutorial came from
- A link to the Pintester Movement post on my blog: http://pintester.com/2013/11/pintester-movement-ho-ho-ho/ (which won’t be live until 12 a.m. EST on November 15)
- If you’re going to send the ornament to Jodee, she’d probably appreciate a link to her Cheeseblarg, too!
3. POST ON NOVEMBER 15, 2013!
I’m trying to make it easier this time, guys– for everybody… Just go to this post (which won’t be live until 12 a.m. EST on November 15) and link to your post! Only rule? Don’t be a vagina. I’ll be checking the links to make sure you’re including the links I asked for, so just do it, dudes.
Lastly, I’ve made some graphics for you if you’d like to include them in your post or your sidebar! This is totally optional, but thought you might like them!
That’s it! Easy peasy. So go ahead and get started on writing up your fantastic pin test! Remember, the point of this is not to be perfect. We strive for mediocrity around here, with a dash of funny if it suits you, so don’t feel pressure to perform, ok? No anxiety. I won’t have it.
I can’t wait to read what you come up with!
