I Have a Confession
Hello. My name is Michele, and I am addicted to Pinterest! Anyone out there hooked, too?
A few short months ago I had no idea what Pinterest was. Of course I had seen the icon on various blogs and websites, but paid no attention to it. It wasn't until I received an invitation from my son to join this social sharing website that I found out what Pinterest was.
According to Wikipedia, Pinterest is a"visionboard-styled social photo sharing website where users can create and manage theme-based image collections." The Apple App store describes Pinterest as a virtual pinboard to "organize and share beautiful things in your life."
Since I have never been a scrapbooker or visionboard maker, I wondered why my son thought that I would be interested. But join I did and went to his boards to see what this was all about. Evidently he joined, but never pinned anything! Typical. So I tried to find my way, none of it making sense to me at first.
But I eventually got the hang of it, and now if I'm not careful I can get lost on Pinterest and lose large chunks of time! One the the advantages for me has been finding great bloggers and photographers previously unknown to me. And this week I cooked a great meal from someone I found on Pinterest.
Pinterest is an invitation-only site, so if you are interested, just drop me an e-mail at cookingathome(at)yahoo(dot)com, and I will be happy to send you an invitation. Happy pinning.
