Found something disturbing

I'm sure I'm like millions of others who love to look at Pinterest and get great ideas and some great recipes from around the world.  Today I was on there and came across a picture of one of my finished items.  I don't remember posting this picture to Pinterest but I did post it to my blog.  It was the Victoria Sampler Ort Bag that I had made for Rhonda.  I clicked on the picture and this is where it took me....

Now you could of knocked me over with a slight nudge when I saw this.  I don't know how to back track it to the original person who set this page up but I'd sure like to know where it came from.  I now know how a designer feels about copying patterns.  In a sense, you feel violated.  Let me know what you think about this....I'm just curious.

Blessings, Barbara

I have been through this and here's how I reported a PIN and a USER:

Click on the picture in question--it should make pic larger next
at the bottom of the enlarged pic will be a small dark flag--click on it
and click on what you're reporting.

I hope it works for you.....took awhile to get my pictures removed. GOOD LUCK!!

It has your blog listed - like free advertising. Marly pinned one of my pictures once and I told my family I was famous! I love having someone brag on my finished work!

What's the big deal? That's how Pinterest works... people pin pictures they find on the web. If they link back to the source, it brings traffic to your blog. If you don't like it, you get some HTML code from Pinterest so that one can't pin directly from your blog, but then someone can still take a screen shot and show it without any attribution. It's the internet and your blog is public.

I've had my work pinned from my blog and posted to Pinterest. I didn't mind. I looked at it like I was famous or something... lol.

Seems like the picture has your blog name on it so it seems OK. That's how Pinterest works. Consider yourself lucky that they credit you on the pic!
