PINTEREST

Have you checked out Pinterest yet?  My friend Paige from Arkansas invited me to join Pinterest a couple of months ago.  She told me "Oh my gosh, you will love it!"  I was busy and didn't get around to answering  her invite, then my email was hacked and I lost her invite.   Finally someone else (sorry, I can't remember who) invited me and I joined.  At first I didn't get it and it took me a couple of visits to catch on.  I know, I'm a slow learner, especially when it comes to technology.  But by golly, I think I've got it figured out!  I'll have to say it isn't the most user friendly site but it is sooo neat and sooo addictive!  Of course, you can always go to the help menu and low and behold, it "helps" you out!  (I didn't do this until I was blogging about this and had already figured everything out.... I think!)

Basically it is like a virtual bulletin board.  You create your profile and the bulletin boards you want and then you "pin" things you find on the web to the appropriate bulletin board.  I am forever finding something on the web and thinking "someday I'd like to do that or refer back to that" and then of course it's gone and I don't remember where I saw it.  Now I can organize them on my boards and refer back to them anytime I want.  Isn't the Internet awesome.  If you haven' checked out Pinterest, you really need to.... if you dare !  Remember, I warned you that it is addictive!

  1. I've been on a waiting list to get to join. Is the secret to get someone to invite you?

  2. Judy, I sent you in invite. I think it goes faster if you have an invite but I'm not sure.
