The Pinterest Craze

OK, I signed up for Pinterest several months ago and then quickly forgot about the whole thing. Sure, I would see people posting about it from time to time and “pinning” things here and there but I never clicked back over to view any of it, until today.

(By the way, I did this with Facebook too. I signed up when it was brand spankin’ new but never knew how to use it or what to do in it so I left and didn’t return until years later).

Well, I’m glad I didn’t wait years to return to Pinterest!

For whatever reason, I clicked over there this afternoon and ended up being mesmerized. It didn’t take me long to figure out how it all worked, this time – which just goes to show you that it’s all about the timing. What’s that saying, “When the student is ready the master will appear.” Or something like that?

What is Pinterest? Here is a quote from their About Page:

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.

Whether you are planning a trip, organizing an event, into crafting, or like to collect recipes, Pinterest is a cool way to keep it all together in one place, share with others, and keep up with your friends and find new cool things to pin.

Here are the names of my Pin Boards so far:

  • Products I Love (it’s empty right now)
  • Books Worth Reading
  • Favorite Places & Spaces
  • My Style
  • For The Home
  • Writing
  • Literature
  • The Coveted
  • Rocket City Bloggers
  • Foodie
  • Rome, Italy (I’m planning another trip even if it is just a fantasy)
  • I have been having way too much fun over there at Pinterest. I have found so many cute and new ideas I want to do for myself, family, and home.

    There are some very talented people out there in this big ole world.

    Find me on Pinterest.

    1. I love Pinterest. It’s really a format that works for my own mental organization. I love the visual aspect of it, it reminds me of my office where I just pin stuff to walls.

      1. Yes, that’s right! I’ve seen the photos of your rooms. Very nice! I found something the other day that I am going to start using, it’s like a real pin board. Just get a large artist canvas and cute pin tacks. You can see it in action at See Jane Work.

    2. Thanks, Carol.
      This is a great tool. I can use this to help clients ‘visualize’ goals and situations. Some of my clients are much more visual than others.
      And of course, it’s just great fun!
