    Loved the video Michelle!

    I loved the way you explained everything so very well. :)

    I have however wondered whether we could use for images and add our own blog’s name at the end, just as you added. (I understand this is possible for public domain images, but is it so even for images from MorgueFile and other such sites like FreedigitaI,, etc.)

    I do know that we need to give credit to the photographer when we use images from such sites, if we use an image on our blog. If that is the case, don’t we have to credit the image like the one you used here also? I ask as I’m not very clear about this.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful video and explaining things so well. :)

    Hey there, talented lady! Oh, my stars! This rocks so much! I highly appreciate it! I was talking with my hubby the other day about how to do this. This saves us so much time (and, well, for me, a headache using GIMP, ha ha ha!). This seems simple to do and I’m feeling so confident and inspired now! Thank you! I’ve really found that people share my stuff more when there’s an image, which builds my Facebook following on my fan page so much quicker. Oh, Michelle, you rock, you’re a tech goddess! Thanks for sharing your knowledge so freely with us. xoxo

    You can add mind reader to your resume. :-)

    I have 216 followers on Pinterest and have yet to start a board. I’ve been having this nagging thought to create my own motivational quotes for my first board. I was prepared to someday research Google to find the “how.” And voilà my need has been fulfilled.

    Hmmm, I hope this is the beginning of all my other needs and wants materializing.

    I’m taking action and ready to receive.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Wow Michelle. I continue to be impressed with everything you know. I’ll put pinterest at the top of my list of things to do once this challenge is over and I can concentrate on it. I can pull out quotes and start promotion of my ebook.

    Thank you for always pointing us in the direction of such fabulous tools.

    Awesome I have been wanting to know how to make my own quotes, tired of sharing others so this is so timely. Especially since we now have our full website up (rather than our tumblr blog that i had in the last challenge) Thanks lovely, you are always so clear

    Thanks for the quote tip. I didn’t know about Quote Garden. Thanks. I love Pinterest. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. It is really great news that even those without an invite can just sign-up for Pinterest now. I didn’t get an invite, but I just applied to register and Pinterest sent me an invitation a couple of days later. So, it wasn’t hard to get an account. Do you like pets? If so try my site: for some animal images to pin.

    Hi Michelle, I love your website and you have lots of good information. Whenever I start to go round in circles on the Internet wondering what to do next I look at your list of 51 things or come here. I like this article, but I was really looking for an easier way to put quotes into my personal photos. There should be some little app around that does it. The quest continues. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    Thanks Michelle. This is excellent! I was just thinking the other day as I scanned through my Facebook page is that I always look at the picture posts over just the written!

    Brilliant explanation

    Thank you
    Shelley :-)

    I have a question for you, Michelle. It’s a great idea creating pinnable quote pictures. But how do you get people to share them?

    I’ve been trying this technique on Facebook for some months now. I’m getting Likes but no shares. I’m just wondering if you know of/use any specific techniques that will encourage or motivate your audience to share your pinnables?
