I put this in the combox below, but I'm going to put it here. If you pin something and it links back to a blog post or website, that is considered citing the original source. Jessica showed me how you can do a source search on Pinterest and see everything that has been pinned and credited back to your post. (Do a google search for pinterest.com/source/tiredtwang.com or the address of your blog instead without all the html stuff.)
But, if you pin a picture and only pin back to the location of the picture as it is stored on Blogger, then when someone clicks through, they get taken to here. And from there, there is no attribution or links back to the original post.
By the way, this is one of my pictures that right now is floating around unattributed. If you happen to see it on your pinboard or a friend's could you ask them to change the link so that it points back to this original post? I know the Catholic Pinterest board has it on their board, but I don't know who is in charge of that group board to ask them to change it. I tried to leave comments where I could, but Pinterest must have thought I was a spammer and wouldn't let me comment anymore. Comments don't get repinned so I was trying to leave a comment on each one separately.
I'm hearing lots of people say that repinning seems to be one of the biggest problems. It never occurred to me. I always that it was a matter of courtesy to repin something you liked that someone else posted. Kind of like giving them the hat tip for finding it, but I see now that pinning from the original source only is the way to go!
Also, FYI, if any of your pins link back to an address that starts with a number followed by.bp.blogspot, then you've probably pinned only a picture and not the original post.
