Pinterest

Ok, so I might be behind, but have you heard of Pinterest?

Pin·terest (pĭn'trĭst): n. a social catalog to collect and share things you love
Pin·board (pĭn·bôrd): n. a visual collection of things you love
I've seen some links popping up in my sitemeter from pinterest and am glad to have discovered it! It's like a virtual pinboard/pegboard/inspiration board, if you will. You have a little button up in your tool bar and every time you come across something inspiring to you or that you want to save to see later, you click the little button, add it to a pinboard and voila! Boards of inspiration and ideas that link the picture back to the website where you found it. No more bookmarking and having to scroll back through a long list to find that fun idea I saved months ago :) What a fabulous idea. You can also look through other people's pinboards and "repin" pictures (links) to your boards - there are tons of fabulous boards out there!

You have to request an invite since they are still in the beta stage, but it only took me 24-48 hours to receive my invite. :)


*Edited: Here's a link to my "Pinboards" if you're interested - a little sparse, just getting started :)

  4. I love that idea! I always despise my ever growing bookmark section. I never know which subcategory I put my ideas in...
    I wish I could come up with these sites that people come up with!

  8. I'm a brand new follower, and I'm new to Pinterest as well. I wish I could figure out how to save a snapshot of a board like that -- how did you do it?!

    I'm loving looking though your blog.
