I did notice some "off" things popping up in my feed, now I know why! Thanks for the info, +Elaina Newton 
 
If you've noticed a change in your Pinterest stream lately or the number of repins/views to your blog, here's why (re-posted from my Facebook page): 

"PSA: For everyone who uses Pinterest, they recently started incorporating sponsored pins into the stream and very quietly (they sent an email, but you might have missed it) switched everyone's account to different settings to accommodate it. 

What this means is that your Pinterest stream is no longer organic (based on who you follow and when they pin), but on "web cookies" that track your recent browser history. They use this info to deliver the pins they think you want to see, plus sponsored pins that are tailored to you based on the sites you've previously visited. 

I don't know about you...but I don't like sites telling me what I want to see. I'd rather choose for myself and see the results organically. 

GOOD NEWS: You can shut these settings off and switch back to the original stream.

Here's how:
1) Go to your pinterest profile and click on the gear icon at the top right of your main profile box. A box will drop down.
2) Choose "Account Settings".
3) Scroll down to the section labeled "Personalization" and choose NO for both options.
4) Make sure to hit the "save changes" button at the bottom, so it goes through!" 

Most people DO NOT like the new stream (and the changes), so feel free to spread this message far and wide. It will benefit us all!

Story
Tagline
Food Blogger / Photographer / Sports Nut / Dog Lover / Pittsburgh Girl
Introduction
My name is Michelle Lettrich and I am the voice behind the food blog Brown Eyed Baker (i.e. BEB). I am a Food Blogger, photographer, a hockey fanatic, sports nut, mom to two Golden Retrievers (Einstein & Duke), and a Pittsburgh girl at heart.

Back in February of 2007, I was living a couple of hours away from friends and family, and winter claustrophobia had begun to set in when I stumbled across a food blog online. I had always loved to bake (a gene my mom claims skipped a generation and went straight from my grandma to me) and enjoyed writing, so this seemed like a perfect way to escape the grey winter days. I figured it would be a creative outlet, perhaps nudge me to try some new, more challenging recipes, and my mom and sister could check out what I was making. That was nearly seven years ago and the rest, as they say, is history. 

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, home of the famed Primanti Bros. sandwich. In a previous life, I worked as a marketing analyst in a few different cube farms. I am entirely self-taught when it comes to the kitchen, learning as I go through cookbooks, magazines, television shows, the Internet, and a tremendous amount of trial and error. My grandma baked by feel; her hands knew when dough was ready and she never second-guessed herself. I try to channel her confidence when I’m in the kitchen, and hope to pass it along to my readers, too!

When I’m not in the kitchen covered in flour, you can usually find me watching sports, lacing up my ice hockey skates, obsessing over my fantasy football team, playing a rousing game of 500 Bid, or spending time with my husband at our home in Pittsburgh with our two Golden Retrievers, Einstein and Duke.
