Who loves Pinterest!?!? (Are you waving your arms wildly in the air like I am?) If you do, then you will love this new-to-me tool that you can use to schedule your pins. Some of you may know of my love for Buffer from Healthy Living Summit and using it to schedule tweets and Facebook updates, but we should schedule out pins as well. Just like you don’t want to bombard a Twitter feed with update after update in a short period of times, you should space out your pinning as well. I know it’s hard, because if you are like me, I get on there and see a ton of cute things I want to repin and I go to town! This is fun, but not getting your blog or pins a lot of exposure since it’s condensed into such a short period of time. So, what’s a social media junkie to do?
Enter Pingraphy. If you are familiar with other scheduling platforms, this will be a breeze. Simply sign up using the same email and password you used when you signed up for Pinterest. Them be sure to drag the pingraphy button into your toolbar up top below your address bar for easy scheduled pinning, and you are ready to go!
Ok, so say you are on my blog and you really want to pin a sweet photo of my awesome new pink running shoes.
Simply click the Pingraphy button in your toolbar and all the photos from my post appear—with checkmarks.
Click the “uncheck all” button unless you want to pin eeevveerrryyy image, and just click the one or two you want to schedule. Hit next, then a box will pop up asking you to schedule the time/date and what board it should be pinned to, or upload it to Pinterest right now. After you schedule, click confirm and you are done! So simple.
Not only is this tool important for spacing out pins, but it’s also a time saver. Say you know tomorrow you are super busy but you want to get pins up, you can schedule a bunch for the next couple of days, and then not worry about it tomorrow when you are too busy to pin, are on vacation, etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions!

I love to look for recipes on Pinterest. Thanks for this tip this will be helpful. Also, I’ve been using Buffer since you recommended it at the HLS. It’s a great tool. 🙂
Oh wow!!! That is a fantastic tool!!!
You are so savvy lady. I miss you and your accent!!
Oh wow, I had no idea you could do this. I’m pretty sure my friends would’ve appreciated it if I’d done this one day when I went on a crazy recipe pinning craze and pinned like 60 in a row, haha!
