Duh, Pinning!

If you've had the unfortunate experience of speaking with me in person lately, I've probably told you how awesome Pinterest is.

Oh, what's that?  I haven't told you how awesome it is yet?  Well, then.  Let me explain!

Here's my best spiel...

Is this you?  Are you constantly bookmarking pages with DIY ideas, printing dozens of recipes, clipping articles and inspiration photos from magazines?  Have long wish lists on Amazon, and are constantly hearting items on etsy?

There's got to be a better way!


There is!  Behold - Pinterest!  The coolest website you never knew you needed.  Instead of those dozens of bookmarks and half ideas from blogs floating around in a mishmash, you can now collect all those links, photos and ideas in one place with the click of a button.

You can pin your own ideas onto categorized boards (For the Home!  Stuff for Kids!  Recipes!  Style!) and repin other people's items to create your own personalized inspiration board.

Never forget what blog you read that cool idea on again!  Pinning automatically saves the link for the original picture, so you can always go back to the source!

Follow other people's boards for more ideas, and become terribly flattered when people follow your boards.  Waste more time than anyone needs to waste over the course of a day!  Become horribly, horribly addicted to a website that you compulsively check almost as much as Facebook!  Get crazy inspired to do all kinds of wacky DIY projects, but then have no time to complete any of them because you're too busy pinning new things on Pinterest!

It's awesome.  You should check it out.

You can follow me on Pinterest here.  If you want to join, send me your email address and I can send you an invitation.  (Yes, you need to be invited.  It's just that cool.)

So check out Pinterest - it's what all the cool kids are doing.
