How Pinteresting


Posted by Rebecca, April 19th, 2011

I just did it. I joined Pinterest. Wait, you don’t know what Pinterest is? It’s a site that allows you to take pictures from other sites, to share with others, categorize and just create inspiration overall. The best part? It immediately provides the source that you’ve taken the picture from. Genius!

So say you like a picture I posted, well you can “pin” it and it appears in your little Pinterest account and it lists that it came from me. This was particularly appealing to me since I often don’t share inspiration because I’m so nervous about not linking properly, asking for photo rights, etc. I often post as things pop in my head, so I usually don’t think out my posts far enough in advance to ask for permission to use photos. Pinterest has solved this problem for me, yay!

I literally just started this, so my account is looking quite sad…

I admit, I don’t really bookmark things. I don’t have an inspiration folder. I don’t clip magazines. I actually have an insane memory and I rarely forget things I like. So at least this takes some of the workload off of my noggin 🙂

I plan on spending some more time beefing up my pins so come visit me at!
