Pinterest


Posted on January 12th, by Amy in Inspiration. 12 comments

I don’t get out much, but when I do, a beautiful place to visit is Pinterest!  Pinterest at it’s core, is visual bookmarks.  I can pin an image to a categorized board, then I will always know where to find it!

I took a few screen shots –

This is my profile and my most recent pins.  When on the site you can click the picture and it will take you to the original url, where it was pinned.  So, if I pin a super cute tutorial, that I want to try later…i just pin it!

Another fun aspect of Pinterest, is that it’s social too!  You can comment on other pins posted by others too, or repin a beautiful image that they pinned.  Sound confusing?  It’s not!  Once you get on the page it’s quite simple.

These are all images that have been pinned by myself or someone that I’m following.

Pinterest is in beta at the moment, but if you request an invitation they usually are able to add you to the network within a day or two.  No credentials required!  Here’s my profile if you are on there already.  If not join up and then follow me!

Enjoy ~

Amy

    Note to self: Go check out pinterest! Now!
    So far my “to-do” list of tutorials that I like and want to go back to are on a spreadsheet. That would be so nice to just be able to SEE it right there all together!
    Thanks for sharing!
