    My friend and I want to build a site like Pinterest. When I say like Pinterest I don’t mean exactly the same, but with a layout like that and if possible to build a community with all those sharing options, likes, re-post for images and profile pages for users. We also want to have videos and infographics in content so what do you recommend we should do?

    We’re also searching for a cost-effective option because we are low on budget.

    When I post pictures on Pinterest do I use hashtags to have people see my pictures in the description so that they can repin them or like them? Or what do I do? I want people to be able to see my posts when they search. I just started using pinterest so I’m not familiar with it.

    I often see things on Pinterest that are from google and there are some things on google that I want to pin on my boards on Pinterest and I was wondering how to do it or if you even could when there was no “pin it” button on the website. I’ve seen the captions under a post say google images as a reference from where the picture came. Is it possible?

  11. What i want todo is put one of my pinterest boards on a full wordpress.org page and call it ‘blog’.
    I want it to still be live so people can see newly updated pins but on a singular wordpress page (that is part of my site)
    I know some basic understanding of wordpress coding but not much.
