Posts Tagged ‘Guilty Pleaseure’

I have a confession. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately with my latest obsession. No, I’m not having an affair or curled up with my new iPad (although that is a close second!) but I’ve been spending a ton of time on Pinterest.

For those not familiar, Pinterest is a website where you can create inspiration boards, grouped by theme or by no rhyme or reason whatsoever. It’s your choice because you’re the curator.  The best part? There’s a nifty little bookmarklet which allows you to ‘pin’ any web image to your pinboards and it also maintains the link to the image source,  which as a blogger is invaluable.  I have a ton of images that I’ve collected over the years BB (before blogging) that I have no clue where they came from. 

You can also follow other people and they can follow you.   Some of my favourite bloggers have the most amazing Pinterest boards.  There is so much great inspiration out there, it’s hard to know where to find it.   This keeps it all contained in a very pretty and easy to use little package.

 Pinning is strangely addictive.  It’s also time consuming (like I need anything else to keep me online!).  Hubby complains now that he only sees me behind my laptop.   What can I say, a girl’s got to blog and shop and read other blogs and keep up on Twitter!


Also, this week, Pinterest launched a new iPhone app for pinning on the go.  It’s a great little tool that also allows you to take and upload your own photos for even more pinning fabulousity.   Available here

So, if you’re interested to see what I’m loving lately or maybe what the next blog post will be about, then please head over to Pinterest and see where I’ve been wasting spending my time.
