I try a lot of social media sites. Some stick (Twitter) and some don't (Plurk). Every once in awhile one comes along that totally fill a need. Right now I am completely obsessed with Pinterest.
My blog is made up mostly of my own content. I don't highlight stuff from others very often. But I find soooo much cool stuff! I can tweet it but the visual aspect of twitter isn't all there. I could post it to Facebook, but only my FB contacts would see it. I have been bookmarking them in my Google Reader and then that is where they stay, for my eyes only. But now with Pinterest, they are all there for sharing. I love the visual impact of the site, you can skim over the thumbnails and feast your eyes on all the goodness.
The idea is you create "boards" into which you "pin" cool stuff you like online. The organizing freak in me just loves dividing things into categories like crafts and recipies.
I love it! I just love it! I love pinning up things and I love seeing what others have posted. I have a few invites if anyone is interested, just leave me a comment.
NOTE: if you leave a comment wanting an invite and you don't have your email address on your blogger profile you have to email it to me - my email address is on the right side of my blog.
