What is Pinterest ?


Oh I am totally & utterly addicted to Pinterest. I love it. So what is it ?? The official blurb is that Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos. It has had some bad press particularly men saying its all about young women and fashion but as a mum & a creative person I love that I can pin an article I find on the net to a themed board with a picture. I get a visual bookmark that I can go back to at any time to actually read that item or just to remember where it is. I pin recipes, sewing patterns, kids activities, other websites I want to remember, all sorts and any sort of thing. You create your own themed boards. I have lots of boards like my Rainy Day Craft Activities for Kids Board which speaks for itself or my Yummy Yummy cake recipes ideas but I also have lots of sewing boards like Sewing projects for Kids or Sewing projects for me 🙂 If you want you can browse & repin someone elses pin or you can pin a webpage you are looking at by adding a pinit link to your toolbar. If you havn’t added an account yet you can login using your fb (facebook) details so it couldnt be easier & there is a handy phone app. I have a board for my sock monkeys & friends and one for my hand made sewing TOTZ creations too & now I can link them back to my very own blog. Is it sad that I am actually quite excited by that prospect. Ok so I am a creative nerd after all !
