How to Pin Quotes on Pinterest

Web strategist Adam Rotman built a simple and free tool called Pin A Quote that will let you turn your favorite quote on the web into a Pinterest post.

The tool captures both the quote and the original URL of the quote–a great way to share your favorite book, site or author page. Below, we’ve embedded a sample screen-shot of a quote.

Our sibling blog Social Times explained how it works: “Head over to pinaquote.com and drag the ‘Pin A Quote’ bookmarklet to your bookmarks bar.  Once it’s there, you can highlight text on any website and then click the bookmarklet button to pin it.  Pin A Quote creates an image from the text and you can share it on any of your Pinterest boards and send it to Twitter or Facebook.” (Via Kathleen Schmidt)
