|Two Pinterest boards I've created so far.|
It's not that easy ... you have to be invited ... what's that all about? But, an artist friend sent me an invitation so I stuck my toe in and a whirlwind sucked me in and still hasn't let go.
Pinterest is billed as an electronic pinboard. That seems innocent enough ... until you start pinning things on boards and then it's like eating popcorn ... you just keep taking handfuls until suddenly the bowl is empty ... or hours have slipped by unnoticed. Pinterest puts this simple little button on your web browser that says "Pin it." If you see something you like, you pin it to a board you've created. For some reason, that action is like playing a game and creates a pull to keep on pinning.
Sometimes someone else will like something you've pinned and they'll repin it and that adds to the energy to keep going. It's very visual and fun to see what other people are pinning.
Check it out at your own risk.
