Addicted to Pinterest

Gah, yet another social media site to drag me away from writing. If you’ve haven’t visited this site, you might be frustrated when you do. It’s by invitation only. Granted, you simply apply and a few days later get the invite in the mail. The site will give you a sample, but, the waiting is hard to deal with.

Once you’re in, kiss at least three or four hours of life goodbye. (I was fortunate enough to have this happen while holed up in a cabin in the woods, so the time drain wasn’t nearly as detrimental.) The idea is this: remember all those amazing pictures you download from the internet and then stick in a file and forget? Pinterest lets you post and share them. You can comment and repin pics you see from friends. The topics are endless.

Most of the pinners seemed to concentrate on products and people. I guess folks find that time worthy. Me, I went to all the amazing art I’ve always loved, yet could never find a way to catalog. Illustrators, steampunk artists, comic book art, you name it. I also plan to add all those spelling and grammar goofs I constantly see, yet seems wasted when seen individually.

I suggest you check this site out, but be warned, you may never return the same.

  1. It can be highly addictive, especially if you are a crafter or a foody. There are tons of DIY ideas, craft ideas and recipes. A friend told me about the site and I was instantly hooked. I make homemade greeting cards and love to see what others have created. It gives me ideas for my own cards. The same with scrapbook page layouts. I have to limit my surfing to only one day during the weekend, or I’d never get anything done!

  2. Pretty! This was a realloy wonderful post. Thanks foor supplying this info.
