Recently I have been reading lots of great articles about Pinterest and it's rise in the world of social media. Just yesterday a friend sent me this article from the Chicago Tribune. So I am interested in knowing....
Are you on Pinterest?
What do you like about it?
What do you wish was better or different?
How do you use it?
I have been on Pinterest since last Spring and love the way it helps me visually keep track of images,
I use Pinterest to search, surf and be inspired, but mostly I use it to "pin" the things I see that resonate with me for one reason or another. Previously I had bookmarked those things on my computer and had a list so long it was often difficult to find something when I needed it.
Personally, I worry a bit about about how watered down the original image source often becomes on Pinterest. I try to find that original source when posting and sharing images here, but it is not always possible. In fact as I was creating this post, I had a couple of images that I wanted to use, but could not get past Google to find where they originated, so I decided not to use them.
I am sure I am not utilizing this resource to it's full capacity.... I plan to add the "pin it" button to my blog, and a group of social media buttons to my sidebar including a Pinterest button, I probably should be pinning my own images and content and more, but it all takes time and lately my time has been spent like this....
Yes, we successfully dropped off our son at Conserve School this past Saturday! The day was stunning and the Northwoods location amazing. There are 60 impressive kids attending this semester from all over the country (and even one from Germany) and I'm sure the experience will be nothing short of transformative. Thanks for all of your well wishes, they meant so much to me! I'll keep you posted on how it all goes!
I would love to hear your thoughts on Pinterest and please, if you are interested, feel free to
