Virtual Recipe Box

Do you blog and have a ton of recipes you have posted to your blog that disappear into the archives?  Here is how I have made a virtual recipe box I added to the top of my blog to solve the problem.  First, go through your blog and pin all of your recipes to a board of your own.  I just labeled mine "My Recipes."  *Note:  What made it easy to go through and pin all of my recipes this morning was that I had them all under one label on the blog so, I went to that label and scrolled through every post pining as I went.
This is my virtual recipe box now for The Charm of Home.  Every recipe with a picture just a click away!

Now, go to the top of your blog and create a page that leads people to your recipes.  

Create the page and use the option of directing readers to a website.  Cut and paste your new virtual recipe box link from your Pinterest boards to this page set-up and that's it!

My page is labeled simply "My Recipes."  You now can click on this page and it takes you directly to the Pinterest page that is my virtual recipe box.  
Doesn't Pinterest just make your life easier!  I see no end to the uses for this virtual pin board!

Great idea, Sherry. Thanks for sharing. I'm enjoying the series you're doing about recession-era recipes. That is a timely topic, and they all look so good. :)

Have a great day!

Great Idea - now I'll have to figure out for Wordpress, but I am so glad you showed us how to do this.
