    Hello

    I am new to these forums. I have seen quite a bit online about using pinterest to generate traffic to your blog. Also some use an automated process which I'm not really keen on right now.

    My question is this. I would like to start a blog of just things from the web really, design type stuff that I like and I feel is worth a look. First of all is it ok to I guess showcase other peoples stuff on your own blog (linking back of course) but with out permission.

    Then the next question is, after this, to pin on pinterest, should I do this from my blog, then getting the link backs or is this wrong as it isn't really my content.. should I instead pin directly from the original works page. If this is the case then how do I generate traffic to my blog?

    Thanks for any help... Hope this all makes sense.

    Look man, if you are taking something out of somebody's site and posting it to your blog and then you back link to them..you are giving credit back to them....Now if the pic you use for the PINs are really copy righted stuff of those people ( only 10% chances) ...then you should not ideally do it...but in normal cases it wont be the case...so you can easily use them..Hope you get what I wanted to say!

    Thanks. I think I get that.

    I am still reading through these forums so sorry for the questions.

    I am uncertain about scraping rss feeds, especially if there will be adsense on my blog, I don't know the risks etc. Is there a way, to get me started to understand and start getting a few pennies from a blog. Generate some traffic, and get some clicks...

    Thanks
