Pinterest, I was like...what the hell is this? How is this supposed to be interesting? What's the point? Who came up with this?
I just could not see the point. But after using it for a while, I have seen the point.
Pinterest is like an online/digital scrapbook, where you can "pin" things that interest you - hence the name. Duh. However, I would describe it as a great resource where I can put together things according to lists so I can go back to them, without having to bookmark them on my toolbar. And my mind is like a sieve these days - I often take a list to the supermarket to avoid catastrophe, like forgetting the macaroni when the plan was to make macaroni pie! This is perfect for me.
So for example, being a broke superstar, there are a lot of things I lust after at the moment that I simply am not in the position to buy right now. So I pin them. God help the retailers when I get a job! Beware!
|My Style Pinboard on Pinterest|
I have this burning desire to have my own home and make it so me, and while I am not actively looking for ideas, sometimes you just come across things that you find interesting or "you". I say, pin 'em, suckers.
- Home makeover ideas - pin those ideas.
- Baby stuff or ideas for nursery - pin those ideas.
- Books you simply must read one day - pin them.
- Places you want to visit - pin them.
- Hairstyle or complete MILF makeover ideas - pin them.
- Recipes - pin them
- Clever quotes you want to keep for posterity - pin 'em.
- Party ideas - pin them
- Carnival costume choices - pin them
- Diets to fit into said skimpy Carnival costumes - pin them. lol.
- Men you wanna date or marry - lol...well, maybe not so much. But hey, don't let me stop you!
As far as I see, if you have something that really rocks your world, and you want one place where you can keep it all together, then why not pin it?
I am not addicted but it can be addictive especially if you are indeed working on a personal project, and you can meet "pinners" with the same interests who may also have fabbo ideas that you can then "re-pin" to your own scrapbook. So there you go! Pinterest, in a few words.
