I first took notice of Pinterest a few months ago, when I noticed that quite a few people were reaching my blog from that site. I knew a few people who had joined, but, as with Twitter and the iPhone, I thought it sounded like a complete time suck and avoided it like the plague.
Then, I was at a party where some of my friends were discussing it, and decided it might be worth a try. I requested an invitation, and within a week or so, I was granted access to set up my account.
For those of you who do not know, (first off, how do you not know), Pinterest is a site where you create virtual pin or vision boards. When you first set up your account, they have some preset suggested boards, like "For the Home", and "Recipes" but you can delete or rename these. In addition, you can create boards with any theme you want. For example, I have a board for general crafty or DIY stuff, but then I have specific boards set up as inspiration for redecorating our living room and spare room.
I absolutely love this site, and the iPhone app. I have gotten so many great ideas from here. Hubby was annoyed at first, until I made several recipes I found on Pinterest. Now he is a big fan as well. I not only re-pin things I find on there or the web, but I have pinned a lot of my own original content as well, including entries from my blogs. My most popular pins are some of Hubby's cartoons.
If any of you are interested in Pinterest, I do have available invitations, so find me on Facebook or Twitter and let me know you would like one. If you are already on Pinterest, be sure to follow me and my boards by clicking the button in my sidebar.
Happy Pinning Ya'll!
