When I first heard of this site called Pinterest a few months ago, I was like, “Oh, I have to sign up to be apart of it… hummm… I’m not so sure.” But then I found myself coming back to it occasionally to browse the preview page and noticed that people where “Pinning” and “Re-Pinning” things from my site. I then finally signed up to see what all of the hype was about and instantly fell in love with it as a whole!
There are so many inspirational sites out there that open you up to so many new and creative things, but none of them allows you to keep log of all of your favorites like Pinterest does. I really love the idea of having a digital “cork board” if you will, where you keep all of your inspirations, recipes, tutorials and things that you love. I have two large cork boards in my studio, and that is where I generally pin things that I find in magazines or that I personally take photos of to stay inspired. The downfall to this is that, if I don’t print out what I find online, then I can’t pin it on my board. Pinterest solved this problem for me. I can still have my tangible cork board on my wall (because I love handling the items on it), and I can also have my digital “cork board” on my home computer, iPhone, iPod, etc. on Pinterest. It is where ever I am and that’s okay with me.
It’s great too, because if I want to go to the store and grab ingredients for one of my favorite recipes, I can just pull it up and get what I need. I don’t have to remember which website it was on, because Pinterest does that for me.
Tell me what you think of Pinterest and be sure to check out my boards too!
