Pinterest. Move over Facebook and iGoogle (the only other sites I visit on a daily basis)! That's right. I have a new love thanks to my friend, Anna, who introduced me to this AMAZING website. It allows me to organize all my creative musings in one place until I'm ready to actually implement them.
Have you ever read a blog post or looked at a website and thought, "Oh! I totally want to make that...But I don't have time right now...," or "That recipe looks amzingly delish. I wanna try it, for my next cooking adventure," and then when you go to find said post or site again, it's missing?
It's the greatest.
It's a site that keeps track of all those past posts/sites that you want to have access to later. Anna explained it as a "virtual cork board" and I couldn't agree more. Similar to Facebook or Blogger, you can "follow" people who are either your friends or have similar interests/style tastes you do. Thus, giving you access to even MORE great ideas rather than just the ones you find on your own!
To "pin" something, you just have to add the Pinterest Bookmark to your task bar (It says, "Pin It") and click on it whenever you encounter something worth pinning. That's it. Pretty simple. As a heads-up, you do have to request an invite to Pinterest (which takes a few days), but it's totally worth it. Promise.
To give you an idea, here's a screenshot of my recent pins. Pinterest allows you to sort them into categories you name yourself as well. If this is something you're interested in, you can view my profile HERE (I currently have eleven boards you can check out). If you're already a member, feel free to follow my pins. Leave a comment and I'll follow you back! Happy pinning, people!
***UPDATE*** If you're interested, you can request and invite by going to their website, OR, if you leave your e-mail address in the comments below, I'll send you an invite myself. :)
