How to Optimize Your Pins for the Pinterest Smart Feed Have you heard about the Pinterest smart feed and how it impacts your exposure? Are you wondering what it means for your pins? With its new smart feed, Pinterest enhanced key features, which means you need to do things differently to make your pins stand out. In this article I’ll explain the Pinterest smart feed and how to use Pinterest’s changes to your advantage. Find out how to optimize for Pinterest’s smart feed. What’s Pinterest’s Smart Feed? Pinterest’s smart feed is a complex new algorithm based on the following elements: quality of your pin, quality of the source (blog or website) that the pin leads to and a rating assigned by Pinterest. Pin Quality: The highest-quality pins get moved to the top of the queue and stay there as long as the pin receives quality interaction (repins). Source Quality: The quality of the source is determined by how often people pin and repin content from a website or blog. Check the source of everything before you repin to make sure it matches the content.

Terry Irwin: Designer & Educator Can you give us a quick background on your work, how you became a designer, and ultimately landed in education as a Professor at Carnegie Mellon? Two things led to me to become a designer and educator: 1) My father was a typesetter at the newspaper in my home town, so I grew up around letterforms and printing, and 2) I love to learn and would stay in school for the rest of my life if I could. During my 40 years career I’ve tried to maintain a balance between practicing, teaching and studying design. This wasn’t easy or lucrative, but it’s been incredibly challenging and rewarding. In my early career I worked for large corporate identity firms such as Landor Associates servicing clients like Sony, Nike, Hewlett-Packard, Apple Computer, Asiana Airlines and Hyatt Hotels. Since 1986 I’ve also been an educator. In 2007, while my husband and I were living in Scotland, I was contacted by the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University and was invited to apply for the job as Head of School.

Bio Reaching into the freshly cut trench, I pulled out a handful of purple-gray clay and began making a place setting for the scheduled afternoon tea. The sun was warm against my skin on this lazy summer day with a gentle breeze to move the grass and keep us cool. Seated on the ground nearby, my companions were busy shaping their own bowls, cups and teapots. Amid this collaborative adventure rose an aroma that kept our parents away and for which we dubbed the clay “sewer mud.” And thus began a tradition that lasted many a summer day. This was one of my early childhood experiences with the multifaceted material called clay. A couple of semesters into my Bachelor of Arts degree I enrolled in the introductory level ceramics class with professor Joe Hawley. That first piece of clay sculpture launched my career. The following thoughts were part of our many conversations: Clay is alive.

LYNNETTE MILLER: Cyanotypes At Last After several years of thinking about it I have finally made some Cyanotypes. One of my students kindly gave me some of the chemicals required and now there is no stopping me (except that I have now run out of said chemicals). I need to get some more, as each time we have a sunny day I am itching to get outside and make more sun prints. I printed a negative version of the photos onto acetate, in black and white, and placed them onto the pre coated paper. In this case it was tea stained squared paper. It is possible that the blotchy effect on this one is due to the chemicals not being coated or dried evenly, or it could be that they were not dry when the acetate was placed on the paper. Cyanotype gift tags with indigo dyed thread. This image was printed onto thick brown paper. Ferns placed between the paper and the glass.

Help Center Using Pinterest for Education Pinterest is a social network which allows you to share and comment on visual material, which could be photographs, sketches, videos or web pages. Like a virtual scrapbook, but very public, you can collate the items that you love. There is no copyright in the world of Pinterest: you can attach images from other people’s web pages, or repin content from other people’s boards (see this article from JPC Law). In fact sharing content from other people is actively encouraged - this is about the social activity of interaction and sharing and gaining followers, rather than keeping ownership of your work. When the Pin It button is used to select pins from a web page, the pin automatically includes a link to the source web page, so you can remember where you found it, and other people can go to the source for more information. Pinterest has taken the social media world by storm in the past 12 months. Content is organised around boards, which are split into themes. Alternatively: Then Pin It!
