Current Obsession: Pinterest

For the last week and a half, whenever I go on my computer I do three things. Check gmail, Check Facebook, and go on Pinterest for hours upon end. If you haven’t heard of Pinterest, it’s essentially the greatest thing to happen to the internet since I decided to start blogging (I kid, I kid…kind of).

So here is the deal on Pinterest. You request an invite and a few days later you can sign up for an account which then installs a tab on your book marks bar titles “Pin It!”. Whenever you see something online you like say, a recipe or DIY tip, you hit the “Pin It” button, and it automatically takes the image from the site and adds it and the link to one of your categorized boards. I know it sounds confusing but seriously, you’ll thank me later. Additionally, you can browse through other people’s boards and follow members and “repin” things that they put up.

For me, I like to use Pinterest to find new recipes to try, and new workouts to do after I try those new recipes. You can create your own board categories like Fitness, DIY, or Cheap Recipes to name a few. It’s a great way to organize your favorite things on the internet without having your bookmark bar look like a James Joyce novel.

If you want an invite, tell me! Or if you are already on Pinterest, follow me!
