Wow. I love this site. Down to my toes love. I can spend hours on it. I DO spend hours on it. It is by far the best thing ever created to get through long lines, airport layovers, and boredom in general. Here’s the low down:
“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.”
It essentially is an internet-blog reading-picture loving person’s dream. When I was hunting for wedding ideas I had a Word document with random pictures and ideas that I copy and pasted from the internet. It was a disaster. I never remembered where I found the pictures and it was so disorganized that it looked like a 5th grade collage.
Pinterest is inspiration boards on crack.
You can have as many boards as you want, thousands of pins, and enough eye candy to make anyone waste hours of time. Its epic.
Here’s a tip: Its an “invite” site that you have to signup for in order to create a log-in. When I requested an invite from the site via my computer I was put on some ridiculous waiting list. I hate waiting. I hate waiting without Pinterest to help pass the time. The trick is to download the Pinterest App onto your phone, and apparently your phone is the golden ticket to get into the Pinterest club. Wham, you’re part of the most addicting website ever. Suck it Facebook.
