Anyone else us Pinterest?

Post  sfg4uKim on 1/30/2012, 10:13 pm

I hadn't even heard of Pinterest a few days ago, but I really like it.

From pinterest.com: 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.

So, once you set up an account (you have to request an invitation) you get a little "Pin It" button on your toolbar. When you see a picture you like on the Internet, all you have to do is hit "Pin It", then the pictures on that page pop up on a separate screen & you "Pin" whatever photo(s) you want and put them on a specific board. Some programs like Facebook do not allow you to "Pin" photos directly.

I have Boards for Home, Food, Gardening Ideas, SFG Business Ideas, etc. People use Pinterest to plan their wedding, books they like, dream of travel destinations and so much more. You can even "follow" friends.

Anyway thought some of you might find it useful for collecting SFG ideas.

a little off topic but my neighbor, who happens to lurk here, built the coffee table built out of pallets. Looks really cool.

I'm gonna have to check this out! I hear about it from everyone! Any chance I could get an invite? Doesn't it have to be through people who are already members?

They may be changing their policy. They didn't want to get "too big too fast" so they were initially making this "invitation only". Maybe they have their stuff together now.

newstart: they have pretty good instructions on the site. Click on "About" and they will show you how to put a "Pin It" button on your browser's tool bar. You can also click on "Help" (also under "About") and they will show you how to do everything on the site.

If any of the SFG pins are from Kim Roman . . . that's me. You can "Follow" me.
