Pinterest-ing!

So I have just discovered Pinterest.com

So the way it works is –¬† You ask to be signed up. They send you an acceptance email then you set up your page. It is linked to Facebook and/or twitter but I don’t know if you have to have an account at one of these sites to participate.

Your page is divided into subjects – such as great quilts, funny stuff, food, etc.. and the premise behind the site is to post inspiring/interesting pics you have found on the net to your page to share. If you post them correctly, the photos are linked to where you found them so credit is always given to the right person. And when you look at the posted photo, a side bar comes up with other pictures from the website from which it was obtained. If you click on the pic, it will take you to its home website too.

Unfortunately some people are obtaining their pics from such places as google images  Рwe are all out there in some form or fashion so are pics can be found there too with no link back to the home website.

People will began to follow your posts on Pinterest.¬† And you can follow other people’s posts too – its a wealth of inspiration.¬† Be careful though, just like any other social media site, you are apt to fall down the rabbit hole, get lost in the maze of links and photos and loose a lot of productive time getting “inspired”!

Why don’t you give it a try?¬† Follow me down the Rabbit Hole!
