Have You Heard of Pinterest?


A couple of weeks ago two of my co-workers were kidding me about finally joining Facebook.  One of then said “now we just have to get you  signed up for Pinterest.”  Of course I had never heard about the site, but then I am typically way behind the times. 

If you are not familar with it, then let me explain. Or better yet let  me just post the site’s definition of what it is.

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

First  there are tons of ideas already posted on the general boards in numerous subjects like fitness, cooking, gardening, sewing, crafts, and decorating.  If you see something you like there you can then re-pin  it to your personal board.  If you find something on the web you can post that on your board too.  People or friends who follow you can now see all your favorite items in one place without you having to send them separate link codes. It is a perfect way to plan a party or a wedding since friends and family can view your ideas and comment on them. 

For my friends it has taken the place of magazines.  They find ideas for meals, desserts, decorating, beauty and more all on one site.

I am not re-decorating or planning a wedding or a party but I do like looking at the recipes.  Like this one for

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes 


Dulce de Leche Vanilla Cake – I Adore Food!

or a new hairstyle tutorial:


Are you a member of Pinterest?  If so what do you pin to your board?  If you are not then check it out.

    I am not. I don’t do social networking sites that much. I just know I wouldn’t keep up with my bulletin board ;-) I am amazed at how much people are willing to post about themselves on the web. Guess I’ve watched too many crime shows to be comfortable doing that.

    I try to make sure that all my information is just between friends. Pinterest doesn’t bother me that much because you are just saying oh, I like this recipe, or isn’t this dress pretty.

    I joined about 2 weeks ago and I’m a touch lost but there are really no ‘help’ features but I need to watch the vid at the top of the post.

    It asked me what I was interested in at the very beginning and then suggested boards I should follow but now that I understand what I’m looking for I would like to revisit that page but I don’t know how. And I’m not sure why I have a ton of kid activities that come up on potential boards but I don’t have kids!

    Other than that I love the visual of all inspiration pics in one place – it’s very pretty and soothing. And really, there is no info about myself except my name – no age or where you live – just visually stunning pics and inspiration – Leeb – you should join and post your pics as I know there are lots of people who love to see them.

    Also I have discovered businesses on it also – people who do interior design have inspiration pics and pics of their work.

    Basically, I love it!

    I have seen that clever real estate agents everywhere you go are getting set to FSBO Promotion. They are seeing that it’s in addition to placing a poster in the front area. It’s really concerning building human relationships with these traders who someday will become buyers. So, when you give your time and effort to serving these dealers go it alone – the “Law connected with Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.

    Thanks for your concepts. One thing really noticed is the fact banks as well as financial institutions are aware of the spending behaviors of consumers and also understand that the majority of people max away their real credit cards around the holiday seasons. They smartly take advantage of this fact and commence flooding a person’s inbox as well as snail-mail box using hundreds of no interest APR credit card offers right after the holiday season ends. Knowing that if you are like 98% in the American general public, you’ll jump at the possible opportunity to consolidate personal credit card debt and move balances to 0 rate credit cards.aiyi9527$$$$$

    This is the fitting blog for anyone who wants to seek out out about this topic. You realize a lot its nearly exhausting to argue with you (not that I truly would want…HaHa). You positively put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just great!
