Hello my name is Jennifer and I am a Pinterest addict.
I am sure you are aware that out there on the interwebs is a site so addictive it should be illegal.
It is called Pinterest.
The idea is that people go out on the internet
or post from their own blog, tumblr or whathaveyou
and find things that they like....
books, movies, clothing, art, animals Whatever
and they "pin it" onto these little boards.
It sort of takes the memory board or wish board or vision board
idea and makes it into virtual.
I waste a hell of a lot of time on there.
I am embarrassed to say.
BUT there is so much to look at.
Currently I have an addiction to the color blue.
it doesn't matter.
If its blue....I want it. I love it. I have got to have it. Or at least repin it.
There are also so many crafts to try unsuccessfully to make.
And I say unsuccessfully because hello this shit is legit.
It isn't easy to do stuff.
Even though they present it that way with their little tutorials.
So don't fall for it.
You will end up with a disaster that looks nothing like the lovely thing you saw.
Causing you to sink into a deep self deprecating depression.
Two of my most favorite things in the world are shoes and books.
So I fill my boards with those things.
Oh and zombies.
I have a zombies board.
If you are an author it is another way to market your book.
Get your friends, family, neighbors or blog fellows to "pin" your book on their page.
Then the people who follow their pins will see your book.
Click on it and buy it.
There are times when I am pretty sure that I have wasted valuable writing time on Pinterest.
And when all is said and done I get nothing from this site.
It does not make me more informed.
Or more creative.
A better Parent.
it isn't even entertaining.
but it is fun!
How about you?
Are you addicted to Pinterest?
