Am I the only one that is super happy and obsessed with Pinterest? By the looks at how it is gaining poularity so fast, I don’t think so. It’s become an obsession of mine and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
When I first heard of Pinterest months ago, of course like many, it was through Facebook. I went to the link and it asked me to fill out a form so I could be “invited”. I thought it was pretty dumb at first, to be honest. Then once I was in, I couldn’t figure out how to work the darn thing. Boards? What are boards and why would I want one? What does “pinning” actually mean? Are these just pictures of stuff or was there more?
I did my famous Google search and started reading about Pinterest and how to use it. I slowly started to add recipes to a “board” of mine, thinking it was a great way to organize recipes that I might want to refer to later. One board turned into two, three…and so forth…a monster was born.
Now I have 41 boards and over 1100 pins (as of 1pm today…check me back later for a new total). I love discovering new recipes, travel ideas, books, yoga positions, people etc. I also love my “show off” boards, as I call them….just letting the world know of my many other obsessions such as Adam Levine, Harry Potter, Real Housewives, Asian architecture and more. It’s also a place where I can go back and look at them over and over when I’m bored as hell.
Statistics show that since it’s inception in 2009, Pinterest has seen a growth of 900 percent. Yes, folks…that is 900 percent! Its currently in third in popularity to Facebook and Twitter and before long will surpass them I am sure. Am I crazy? I’m relieved to say definitely not!
