I signed up for Pinterest a while ago. Or rather, I requested an invitation after seeing a couple of photographer friends using it and I was very quickly hooked.
That said Pinterest doesn’t suck everyone in appeal to everyone, but I love it!
What is Pinterest? Well, you know how some people have scrapbooks or notice boards into or onto which they glue and stick things they find pretty and interesting- or things related to something they are planning, like a wedding or a birthday party? Pinterest is an electronic version of those scrapbooks.
What I love about it is that I can see a recipe, or a cupcake decorating idea, or a pair of shoes, or something that I would love to have in or on my dream home one day- and rather than save it to my bookmarks I can “pin it” to one of my Pinterest boards and — wait for it — I can find it again easily because the “pin” links straight back to the URL where I found it in the first place! You can also “follow” other people’s boards and repin the links they pin to their boards if they happen to find something you like.
