If you don’t know what I’m referring to when I say the word Pinterest, then I must ask you a very important question….where have you been?!?
Pinterest is sweeping the nation or at least I assume it is, I have no real proof 😉
It’s a place for everyone – men, women, children, cats, dogs…you get the picture. In simplest terms, Pinterest is a virtual corkboard. It’s a place where you can store all those really cool things you find on the internet – without having to save them to your computer. Cool right? Save space on your hard drive! It allows you to create boards and ‘pin’ items to them based on the categories that you create. It also has a really cool section for secret boards so you can pin all those really naughty things you don’t want you mom looking at. Just kidding mom!
There’s a social aspect too because let’s face it, social media is sweeping the nation! 😉 You can follow other people’s boards and comment on their pins. You can ‘like’ pins and ‘repin’ them to your own board.
Have I sold you on it yet? Are you running right now to sign up? No? Okay try this on for size. Pinterest is the best way to enhance your creativity. SERIOUSLY! Imagine being able to get into the creative minds of people from all over the world. BOOM – Pinterest. I know, blew your mind right?
Every time I log in to Pinterest I can feel my creative juices flowing. I see something that sparks my interest, I pin it and then I try it OR even better, I make it more awesome!
It’s a great place for tutorials, recipes, ideas and pretty much anything else you can (or can’t) imagine. I’ve found cool new ways to do my hair, how to make a scarf from up-cycled t-shirts, ideas on Christmas decorating, inspirational quotes, fashion trends, jewelry making tips and a whack load of pretty things. Yeah…WHACK LOAD!
And now, for my challenge. Muhahahahaha. I challenge all of you to log in to Pinterest and NOT have an awesome time. I challenge you to throw off the shackles of “I’m not creative!” and fill your mind with all the wonderful ideas that the world has to offer. I challenge you to find something really cool and make it your own.
So go – right now – check it out, sign up and visit my boards. Don’t forget to add me as a friend so we can share pins too!
