Pinterest is so very awesome because it is basically a digital bulletin board, so to speak. It's digital idea book where you can "pin" your finds (similar to thumbtacking something to said bulletin board), and a thumbnail picture of what you have found is stored on various boards that you create by theme. It's so fun. And there are so many great pins already made that you could spend a lot of time pinning things other people have found and not even need to pin your own original finds (but what fun would that be?).
It has become my newest web addiction, even though I swore I was not going to be wasting time on the Internet anymore. Remember that? I'm trying to be good about it, though. I'll go on and spend a lot of time looking around one day and pin some things, and then I won't go back on for awhile. It also comes equipped with this little pinning bookmark tool so that if you find something cool while you are doing your general web-browsing, you can click the tool and it gives you the option of pinning any of the photos on that page. It's so easy!
I had heard about Pinterest before but hadn't signed up for it, and then Paige over at Final Clothes-Out did a blog post about the site and offered a few of her invitations out to readers who were interested, so I jumped at the chance. You can sign up on your own, but it can take up to a week or two to get started, and if you have an invitation you can pretty much get on there right away. Plus, if you have friends who are on, you can follow their boards and see what they pin. It's definitely worth checking out. Like Paige, I have a couple of invitations left if anyone is interested in signing up- first come, first served!
Who's on Pinterest? Do you just love it?
