A very dear friend of mine, Alea from Premeditated Leftovers asked me if I would create a “Pinterest” button for her and add a “Pin this” button to her posts. I had no clue what she was talking about, so I told her she was going to have to give me more than just a website name.
When she heard that I had no clue what Pinterest was, she sent me an invitation and told me that I had to get in on this.
I joined, got the info I needed to create her a button, and let it sit there for a few days. Last night, hubby had to work late, and I decided to poke around on Pinterest.
Where has this been all my life? Seriously. The OCD Organizational Freak inside me is screaming with glee right now. This site is amazing.
You find things online that you want to bookmark, and you “pin” them to your boards. (You create the boards, and they can be regarding anything you want: style, fashion, jewelry, for the kids, for the home… I even have a board that has party ideas for the Phineas & Ferb party I’m throwing next week.) You can also “repin” something that someone else has pinned. (That’s how I’ve found most of my pins – people are finding really great stuff all over the web and pinning it for me to find!)
It’s invitation only, so if you want in, you have to find someone that can send you an invite. (I can, I can! Just leave a comment and let me know you want in.)
If you’re already on Pinterest, look me up. I’d love to follow you and see what great stuff you’re finding online!
