In case one is inclined to share visual content particularly, Tumblr and Pinterest both are designed to offer best services to the users. Being the best social networks in terms of sharing pictures one can share content from one network to another. Although it’s a bit difficult to do that, there are some tricks to follow while doing it as it’s not something that both platforms are comfortable with.
If one wants to post pins from Pinterest to Tumblr, then it’s quite easy. You can use an automated method called IFTTT (If This Then That) this would automatically allow the Pins to post on Tumblr, with the help of RSS feed. If you are planning to do the same thing from Tumblr to Pinterest, it would be a bit tricky and difficult to achieve.
Pinning something from Tumblr to Pinterest won’t be possible through the same method as used while pinning from Pinterest to Tumblr. IFTTT won’t work from Tumblr to Pinterest as it works on the RSS channel, which is accessible only for Pinterest account and not for Tumblr. Therefore in order to do it, you have to go with the process of Pinterest Bookmarklet, which allows you to pin anything from Tumblr to the Pinterest board without any hassle.
The following is a detailed description and process of how to use this method as a convenient tool to pin images from Tumblr to Pinterest:
Drag and drop ‘Pin it’ to bookmark bar
It’s a simple procedure for those who already know about it, but for those who haven’t used it before. Anything on the web can be easily pinned to your Pinterest board, which is done by selecting the ‘Pin it’ button option. This can be found on the Pinterest Goodies page. You just have to click on the ‘Pin it’ button and drag it till you drop it to the bookmarks bar of the browser. Alphabet ‘P’ would automatically flash, if your attempt is successful.
