Just to review, Pinterest is sort of a virtual corkboard. As you come across ideas or images online that you want to remember, you can pin them to your board. The advantage of pinning is that, unlike bookmarking, you can see a picture and write yourself a little note to remind yourself why you wanted to save that particular site. Plus? You can keyword search on Pinterest to see what other Pinners have deemed pin-worthy. Basically, you're gathering all of the best of the web, however "best of" is defined for you, into one easily accessible location.
So what made me take the plunge into pinnerhood? Well, I was busy preparing for our next theme for Camp Scarlet and came across a craft that I absolutely love. I knew that I would forget about it if I didn't do something to jog my memory. Bookmarking just wouldn't do.
Even if you're not a member, you can check out my boards here. I'll give you 3 guesses as to what our next theme will be. If you have been sucked in to the vortex of collaborative loveliness that is Pinterest, let me extend a kind invitation to follow me.
See ya there!
