Tuesday's {Tip} Pinterest, Etc.


Okay, I have finally jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon. I have seen it explode this year but never joined. Thanks to my friend Roben-Marie for inviting me! If you don't know what Pinterest is, here is a quote from their "about page":

"Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests."

Oh my word, I am finding I LOVE it! It's like one big gallery for me instead of having to go to so many different sites to find what I had "liked" previously. It bookmarks the site for me, and I can visually see what I was looking for. I have currently created 11 boards (or folders) thus far which makes it even easier to find what I love. If you want to see how it works, you can see my page here. It is my understanding that there is a long wait-list to join unless you have an invitation. I can certainly give you an invitation but I don't know if there is a limit on how many people I can invite. If you want a board of your own and an invite, just e-mail me your e-mail address and put "Pinterest" in the title so your message doesn't get lost amongst the thousands of others. :) If I have an "invitation limit," I will let you know.

Now onto the "Etc." :)

Twitter
If you haven't noticed, I have also joined Twitter. Now Facebook is one place I am still avoiding like the plague. LOL! Anyway, I will try to update it with important posts, etc. You can find my Twitter info on the top, left-hand portion of my blog. My family has laughed at me and can't believe I will be "tweeting." LOL!

Hey Patter - I just had a friend show me how to use it today and am like you, I LOVE IT - it is going to help so much with keeping things I like organized !! I'll have to find you and follow you - if I have problems, I'll send you an email. Hope you are well !! It is cooling off here in SC and feels great - we are gearing up for the football game this weekend and can't wait for it to start.
