Have you guys seen Pinterest? Apparently I’m not the first to know, but I know I’m not the last either. 🙂
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. The idea is that you “pin” things that you find interesting on the web. You can make and categorize multiple “boards” (like pinning on a cork board). It’s an easy way to share craft ideas and cool products that you find online. I have found that “Weddings” seem to be the hottest topic – and the ideas that are posted are quite amazing.
They make it fairly easy to post – you can install a “Pin It” button on your browser toolbar that allows you to pin while you are surfing the web. The sign up process is a bit odd, though. There is a link on the homepage where you can “request an invitation”, but I couldn’t get it to work. I said this on Twitter, and had another member send me an invitation.
I would love to be able to post things other than pictures. While it’s easy to do that in StumbleUpon, I really like Pinterest’s interface – who wouldn’t be? – look at all the pretty pictures! I wish I could have a combination of the two, though – to be able to post pictures, as well as sites, articles or videos that you have found on the web.
Join Pinterest and start pinning what inspires you. If you are a wedding planner, decorator or stylist – this is where you have to be!
