I’ve was a bit late getting on the Pinterest bandwagon and didn’t want to post about my account until I built up my boards enough to be worth while.
If you are not familiar with Pinterest, it is essentially a virtual pin board, where you pin ideas, craft projects, recipes, random thoughts, quotes, etc. The thing I particularly love about Pinterest is how visual a means of organization it is. In one since, it is a collection of bookmarks, but it is so much more as it is actually a collection of images of bookmarks. Plus, rather than than bookmark a site and then try to come back and find the project, recipe, or whatever you want, you just bookmark the thing you are interested in, with an image and description to remind you what the bookmark is for (in the event that you’re like me and forget why the heck you ever bookmarked something in the first place).
The main problem with Pinterest is that once you start getting followers and following people, and even before when Pinterest just randomly recommends things, you find yourself easily spending hours on the site.
To give you an idea about how Pinterest works/looks, this is a partial snip of my main “page” with some of my boards:
And her is a close-up of my painting board (from the boards page, you get the details when you click on the board).
Anyway, I have a found it to be a good way to organize all the recipes, crafts, and educational projects that I want to save or try. If you are interested in following me or just checking out my boards, click here:
I’ll try to follow you back, if I get notified that you’re following me (I’m still trying to work out the kinks about what notifications I actually want to receive as it can get to be a bit much when 20 people repin something I posted).
