I am 100% obsessed with Pinterest!
Pinterest is an online pinboard to collect and share what inspires you. Pin your favorite images and videos from anywhere. Discover new things hand-picked by people who share your interests.
I signed up (free, of course, and yes, there’s an app for that) a couple of weeks ago. There are a bunch of boards to get you started but over time, I’ve deleted most of those & created my own. (Oh yeah, you’ll definitely notice my “theme”, to no one’s surprise!)
Art that Makes You Say Wow
Recycling at its Finest
One of my most favoritest things about the Internet is finding cool art – and my favorite kind of art is “extreme” art – where unusual materials are used to create amazing works. Pinterest has been ideal for saving those images (posting them to Facebook is optional and I’ve been trying not to abuse that, but it’s hard because I want to share everything).
(Here’s a tutorial I stumbled upon a few minutes ago, to get you started.)
I guess it’s a little bit like Flickr, which I also love, but somehow this seems better. There’s a bookmarklet available on the site, that you can drag to your bookmark bar which makes it super easy to add pins to your boards. (If anyone knows how I can do this with Safari on my iPad, please tell me!)
I’ve connected with a bunch of people through my Facebook list, but every day more people are “following me” – and I them, because we have similar interests. The front page shows the most recent postings. Mostly I’m finding all these cool images from the boards of people who are following me
I suppose a large part of the appeal of Pinterest is the neat organization of your pinned images. You know I’m a fanatic over anything that’s lined up nice & neat.
See you online – start pinning!
