Tuesday Turn About Link Party 51

Welcome to June and to Tuesday Turn About Link Party 51.

I love June. It’s my birthday month and my son’s birthday month. In fact, he is the best birthday present I ever received.

June signals the beginning of summer with warm weather, blooming gardens, and outdoor activities. We may not be gathering like normal, but we can still enjoy the beauty of summer. From many of the posts you have shared, backyard sprucing up is on the minds of many. It’s a fun time to share those summer ideas. Here’s TTA 50 for you to peruse.

Are you still loving our tips?

Carol’s Blogger Tip

One of my favorite WordPress plugins is Tasty Pins from the team at Food Blogger Pro. (Julie has mentioned this plugin before.) I thought I’d dive deeper into the WHY every blogger should invest in Tasty Pins (it’s $29 a year ~ that’s $2.42 a month or 8¢ a day).

First, Tasty Pins creates boxes in your Media Library post dashboard for both Pinterest Title and Pinterest Description ~ which Pinterest really wants because Pinners want them. This information is very good for Google and SEO. Those boxes help you remember to include that information on every Pin.

Secondly, Tasty Pins includes a checkbox to disable a Pin. That means that your PIN button doesn’t work on these images. I love that I can steer Pinners to Pins that really show what my post is about. Why do you want to disable a Pin?

  • allows you to focus on images that clearly show what your Pin (post) is about
  • focuses on images that add to your content
  • keeps horizontal images from being Pinned
  • keeps random images (sidebar graphics or photos that don’t clearly demonstrate what the Pin is about) from being Pinned

The disable Pinning button has to be checked in the image details within your post, not in the Media Library dashboard. If you want to check out Tasty Pins for yourself, here is a link to the plugin. Just FYI, this is an affiliate link. Tuesday Turn About Link Party 51

With everyone thinking about outdoor spaces, Paula of Sweet Pea showed just how to make a patio space more inviting and comfortable. I’d love to sit on Paula’s patio and enjoy the lake views.

I go gaga over blues and Coco of The Crowned Goat has created a lovely blue and white comfy front porch setting. The check pillows, flowers, and books to read make this the perfect spot for relaxing on a summer afternoon.

I remember pressing flowers in books as a kid, but nothing so pretty and sophisticated as these framed flowers by Candace of Unfolding Beautiful.

  1. Wow – fabulous features Carol! And thanks for the Tasty Pins tip! I’ve been thinking about getting it. Does it work with Tailwind?

    I so appreciate you hosting this great party! Thanks as always, and Happy Birthday Month to you AND your boy! 🙂 Hope you have a good week!

    1. Barbara, I’m so glad you found the tip helpful. Tasty Pins works with Tailwind in that the Pin description you include in Tasty Pins is where Tailwind pulls your description from. Definitely try it!!

  2. Happy Birthday month Carol! I agree, children make the best gifts, my son was born on Valentine’s Day! Thank you for the party 😘
