After this, your article Pin will look like this.
Pinterest has Ideal Image size for the graphic is 735 px*1102 px. and your blog banner size is 560 px*315 px.
So there is a big difference in their dimensions so if you direct share your blog banner to Pinterest it will be a very small image there and you don’t get any advantage of this sharing and you should make a new Pinterest graphic.
Here I have added some best tools for making Pinterest Graphics.
If you don’t have time for making Pinterest Graphics share your blog with Blog default Banner Because Sharing is more important.

To create a Group Board go to profiles >> boards and click on create board. Give a name to this board.
After that, there are some options to edit this board and allow more Pinterest users to collaborate with this group. here’s you can also share your new boards on other social media.
Give a name to this Group Board and edit this by point:
It’s time to upload your first Pin on Pinterest for this click on add Pin and upload your Pin, On the website field enter your blog post URL or website link. Don’t forget to add the description of this Pin with relevant #hashtags. #hashtags gives more attention toward this pin.
After creating your group board, there is also an option to join other’s group board.
Why should you join other’s group board while I have my own?
Yes! you have your own group board, but what about followers or audience and why keep reach of your Pin up to your followers.
On Pinterest there are 200+million monthly users, you should try to reach out as you can.
If you add a Pin to your group board then it is visible only for your followers or board followers, but if you also add this pin to other’s group boards then it will be seen by other Pinterest users who follow that board.
That’s the reason why you should join other’s group board.
Pingroupie is the best tool to find new group boards that are relevant to your niche, there is huge option to filter board list and select them.
If you are a blogger then definitely you need more boards to share your blog Pin due to a huge amount of different followers on other board.
For this, I have created some Group Board where new bloggers can share their blog post Pins.
