Pinterest. Get Inspired.

February 22, 2012 - Theresa Proudfit
"Have you heard of Pinterest?" my friend Wanda asked. Have I heard of what? "You need and invitation. I'll send you one right now." she said. Oh for crying out loud, now what was developed to suck up the little time I have left each day? I love my good friend Wanda, and she can sometimes be pushy, but I reluctantly accept the invite anyway. Two weeks later and I am addicted. I absolutely love this site. Thanks Wanna.

What is Pinterest you ask? Well let me tell you. Pinterest is a social network comparable to having a giant cork board on your computer. You pin up things you like, things you want to try and things you find interesting and then you can share with all your friends. It is inspiring, its mostly drama free, and its very helpful.

Looking for something to make for dinner but don't want to "join" a cooking website that wants your email address? Want to browse for a wedding dress but don't feel like dodging pop ups or looking at advertisements? Need ideas on how to help your child do better in math? Are you repainting? Looking for a better way to organize your space? Do it yourself projects galore are pinned everyday. The ideas are there and many of them are fantastic.

Do you have a great idea or perfect recipe you've been wanting to share? Pin it up. I want to see it. Do you have artwork to share? It is also an online gallery. Are you crafty? Lets see your goods. Maybe I'll visit your website and buy something.

If your thinking you really don't need another social network you are wrong. This one is different. No advertising or pop ups, no game invites, no requests from organizations looking for money, no drama. Just good ideas and a place to store them. Hope you're inspired, I'll be looking for your interesting pins.
