"It's fun!""Like window shopping. You see some fabulous things."
"It's addicting!" (I was a little fearful of this one)
"It's a great place to find recipes!" (This last one from a long-time friend who knows me well. It was the one that tipped me over the edge.)
I have now been an official Pinterest member for two whole days and, in that time, I've discovered that, yes, it can consume your time...if you let it. But I've discovered a flip side. It can also save time! No more searching through closets and drawers looking for that elusive recipe I wrote on the back of an envelope. I just pin it to my Food board and it's right there waiting for me anytime I'm in the mood to make that particular dish. It's a great place to house all those interesting photos I see on the internet (so many cute dogs!) that I might want to use in a blog someday (but can never find again when I need them). I'm redecorating my bedroom and looking at oodles of curtains, comforters, rugs and other accessories. How convenient to have photos of all of them on my Home board to help me make decisions!
All in all, I think I like this new neighborhood. The residents seem friendly, it's easy to find my way around and exploring the diverse and fascinating boards makes me happy. Click here to see my page, but remember, it's still a work in progress! :)
Are you on Pinterest? What boards do you have (or would you put) on your page? I have a "Books Worth Reading" board on my page. If you had one of those, what books would you put on it?
Let's dish about "Pinning" on Pinterest. I have a book from my prize stash for one random person who leaves a comment on today's blog!
