We're (back) Co-Hosting the PINcentive Blog Hop #18

Three times in six week...oh yes we did!  Two it Yourself has once again been featured on the PINcentive blog hop (this time it was our Dollar Store DIY Chalkboard Tray that caught the eye of the lovely hosts) and so once again we're thrilled to be co-hosting this week's link party!  I'll let Elena from Cropped Stories take it from here...
Welcome to the 18th week of the blog hop!  This week, I thought it might be fun to let you in on the numbers.  You know the numbers I’m talking about right?

The winners of our hop get some major Pinterest exposure when their content gets pinned by my team of pinners (below) and by, YOU, the blog hop participant!  I’m happy to report that the number of times our winner’s content gets pinned has been averaging around 60-70 times!  As fantastic as this number already is, there are many instances our winner’s posts are pinned well over 100 times!  Take a look for yourself at, what I’m calling, Our PINcentive Blog Hop Pinterest All-stars!

 Oh, and if you’d like to pin these fabulous posts (if you haven’t already), feel free! 
As always, a BIG THANK YOU is in order to everyone that has been linking up.  More so for making it EXTREMELY difficult for our co-hosts to choose winners each week and providing us with such great recipes, crafts, tips, parenting advice, tutorials, (you name it)!  Your content has truly been a pleasure to read, and it keeps getting better each week!
If this is your first time linking up; WELCOME!  I am extremely excited to provide this link up for you today and the opportunity for you to increase your traffic, followers, and improve your page rank! 


Each week, 3 winners will be chosen by our co-hosts!  As a winner, you will have the opportunity to:
  • have your post featured,
  • co-host our next hop and choose our winner (a great way to make new friends and increase your following),
  • priority seating (which means I’ll add your post to our link up manually), and
  • have your content pinned a minimum of 31 times by my Pinterest Incentive Program (PIP) team members below. 
Additionally your content will be pinned by the each blog hop participant!  That’s right!  Blog hop participants will be required to pin the winner’s content.  The number of link ups we have will determine the total number of times your content gets pinned so, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SPREAD THE WORD!  It will only benefit you in the long run! 
Now, according to proper blog commenting etiquette, REQUESTS TO FOLLOW BACK are in poor taste.  For this Blog Hop, HOWEVER, let’s rid ourselves of this rule (that’s right; throw it right out the window)!  For this PARTY, they are ENCOURAGED and ENTIRELY APPROPRIATE!
