Welcome to the second half of the alphabet! This year's theme for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge is things you're likely to see on Pinterest. For each letter, I've been highlighting a subject and giving a few follow recommendations.

Although Pinterest isn't the best source for important breaking news, there are some users who enjoy pinning images that link to news stories. The topics and sources vary; the best way to find news pins is to search for boards with the word "news" in the title.

A more roundabout way to find news-related pins is to think of a news source you're interested in and then find out who has pins from that source. The way to find a source is to type and then add a domain name followed by a slash. You can also start with this link to the Weather Channel as a source and then substitute your preferred source.

With most topics, it would be beneficial to search on the word itself, but in this case, results would probably reveal far too many pins that have nothing to do with what you're actually trying to find.

Here are a few Pinterest users who have news-related boards:

Official Lady Haven Magallanes - In the NEWS

Techno Spunky - News

Brenda Moxon - Newsworthy

Eryl Shields - Breaking News

I had no idea anyone pinned news. All of my Pinterest friends pin recipes, decorating ideas, workout routines, or fashion. I'll have to explore some of the links you've suggested. Expand my horizons a bit!

I hope you find some cool new boards to follow. I was surprised by some of the things I've found there.

Mmmm. News! Something I try to avoid rather than deliberately finding the latest. Blog on!
