Do you pin?

A month or two ago, I discovered Pinterest.  I'm coming to this party a little late, I know.  I was immediately addicted and found myself scrolling through recent "pins" using their app in the evenings when I should have gone to bed and in the wee hours of the morning when I should have gone back to sleep.

For the uninitiated,  I thought I was the last to join, Pinterest is, to quote their website, "a virtual pinboard."  Basically you can catalog and organize all of the cool, inspiring, funny, or just plain weird stuff that you find all over the Interwebs.  You can share your "pins" with others, and they can "repin" to their own boards.  The bottom line is that I've found so many cool crafty projects, ways to organize my house, clothes that I need to find in my quest to dress better, and recipes that I need to make.  You can also "follow" others with similar tastes so you can watch what they are pinning.  It's kind of hard to explain, so my advice is to give it a try...

If you want to join, you need to email them from the website and request an invite.  They will send it in a day or so (note: check your spam filter).  Then start pinning.  And follow me.  I'm warning you now that this can be addictive.

You can find the Pinterest buttons on their Goodies page:

I still don't get the Pinterest.... it's just pictures, right? I think I have enough addictive online things going on right now though. :)

@Aleta: It's pictures, but the pictures are links to the original source on the Internet. So, if I pin a recipe, when I click on the picture it will take me to the blog/ website where I can find the recipe.

Definitely addicting! Visiting from SITS & following your pins now!

I'm celebrating my 1st blog birthday & hosting a giveaway (HERE) for custom social media icon design. I thought you might be interested in it for your "I'm on the interwebs" section.
