Welcome to the first ever Monday Parenting Pin-It Party, an all new, pin-tastic linky.
This linky is all about sharing your parenting posts and finding lots of other cool stuff to pin and boards to follow on Pinterest, whilst gaining some new followers yourself to share more of your own awesome stuff with.
So, how does it work?
Here are the rules people, the rules…
1. Pin up one, or more, of your own parenting/family posts. This can be anything you like but below are some examples:
- A family friendly recipe
- A child friendy craft
- Parenting tips or advice
- A post about a recent family experience
- A review of a child’s book/product
- A tale of the latest tantrum trauma
Really, anything you like. The more variety the better and there is sure to be something for everyone. Each entry will then be pinned by the host to the Monday Parenting Pin-It Party board on Pinterest, see below.
2. Follow the Monday Parenting Pin-It Party board on pinterest, featured below.
3. Visit two other entries on the list that you like the look of, pin to one of your own boards, and leave them a comment letting them know you came from here and leave your pinterest ID.
4. For those Pin-It Party members that comment on your post, visit on pinterest and follow at least one of their boards.
This way everyone should hopefully gain some new followers themselves whilst discovering lots more cool stuff to pin and like-minded pinners to follow. It is all about sharing the pin-tastic-love people!
It would also be super lovely if you would like to link your post back to the host by either a text-link or by grabbing the badge.

Each entry will be pinned to the Parenting Pin It Party board by the host. The following weeks host will then feature their two favourite pins from that week in the next Monday Parenting Pin-It Party post, so don’t forget to follow the blog of each host so that you don’t miss out. It might be you.
So who are the hosts?
Little old me
Helen from Kiddycharts Blog: Mummys Little Stars
So, on with the linky. Please enter as many posts as you wish. Maybe dust off a few old blog gems and show them some love?
Next week Annie will be sharing her favourite two entries and hosting the next Parenting Pin-It Party over at Mammasaurus. You would be mad to miss it.
Happy pinning peeps!
great linky idea, i’ve replied them and pinned a few, my pinterest is @ummziyad i forgot to write it on the blog comments!! first time ive joined this linky, and i am easily confused :p sure i will get it right next time!
Thanks so much for joining in and yes you did it right 🙂 Am following you on pinterest now too!
I’ve linked up my pins, was that right? I found it so hard to go to blog posts and then try and find where pinners have put their pins on their boards. So I linked my pins instead. I hope that’s right.
Yes entirely up to you Sara-Jayne. We don’t mind if you link up the pin or the post itself. Thanks so much for joining in. I did try and leave you a comment but I couldn’t find a name/url option so blogger wouldn’t let me. Feel free to drop your pinterest ID here and will make sure am following you 🙂
I think I’ve done it! I’m sarajaynejones on Pinterest though 🙂
Ah great! Found you and am following 🙂
Great idea Jennifer and I’m really excited to be on board with it! Off to search me blog for parenting posts!
Oh how exciting – and lots of link ups – off to have a good look.
There is some really awesome stuff, and such a great variety. I have found some great new blogs to follow too. Am so delighted. Thanks for linking up 🙂
It has been amazing – still playing catch up – fantastic idea :O)
I have just entered mine and now off to check out some of the other posts over on Pinterest – got to work out how to use it properly first!!
Hee hee. This will give you some great stuff to start with. I warn you, it is a bit addictive! Thanks so much for joining in 🙂

Such a good idea, and I’ve found some great new pins by being forced over there!
Hee hee, nothing like a bit of strong-arming to get the blog-love flowing 😉 I have found some great new blogs too and am so impressed by the stuff that has been linked up!

Thanks for the opportunity 🙂
I linked with one of our “tricks” to handle difficult situations with our 3 kids (#65-wow many links!).
My pinterest profile is: http://pinterest.com/outnumberedbe/ , and i also found some nice ideas to pin.
Thanks, i hope you like my pins also 😉
I LOVE your post and have no doubt that the counting tip will come in extremely handy in a year or tow when number two has made his/her appearance! Thanks so much for joining in.

Thanks for doing this, it’s a great idea for a linky party – I brought some wine! 🙂 I could spend all day checking out these blogs but I better give my daughter some attention 😉
