For The Love Of Pinterest

I tried to resist, I really did.

I thought, "I don't need another place to mess around online."

And maybe I still don't really need another place to visit online, but Pinterest is really serving a purpose.

The purpose is inspiration.

Color inspiration. Type inspiration. Memory keeping inspiration. Cooking inspiration. Clothing inspiration. Home inspiration. Inspiring words. And stuff I just love.

It's a site to categorize and keep all those inspiring ideas in one place.

I see things online I want to remember and I "pin" them to my "boards." This is my favorite way to use it - as a home for things I'd like to remember or revisit all in one place.

I also see other cool things people are "pinning" and "re-pin" them to my own boards for safe keeping.

My collection of inspiration is growing. And just like many things, I've already gone through a couple phases. Right now I'm in the "this is super great" phase especially as we head into the holiday season. A quick search for Fall or Halloween or Christmas brings up so many fun ideas and eye-candy.

Are you on Pinterest?


A really big thank you for your kindness and support on my What Is Real Now post.

    I haven't given in to it yet!! I just keep bookmarking the pages that inspire me. I do like the idea of Pinterest though so that it would be organized for me. Love love all the holiday ideas out there at the moment.

    I have to say it...
    It's a SCRAPBOOK of sorts, isn't it? I tried to stay away too, and that didn't work. But I do store ideas there! Love it!

    Oh my gosh yes... I LOVE Pinterest. It's just blimmin interesting :) And fun. Wow the things you can find on there, the crafty stuff that you can do, the colours... just wow.

    It's also a nice way to find out who of your friends have similar interests to you. AND you can cross post really excellent finds to Facebook :)

    I too tried to resist... but I'm glad I didn't. What I find is that I can pop onto Pinterest for just a minute or two and get a giant burst of inspiration. In many ways, I think I will spend less time online because it is now so easy to find inspiration all in one place.

    I'm on Pinterest too (nicolereaves) and have been following you. I LOVE it! I had many of the same feelings as you in the beginning but now I find it to be the absolute best way to bookmark ideas on the internet. I love that you can catergorize pins too! Now I'm looking for a happy balance of pinning original ideas and repinning. :) It's so much fun!

    Of course I am. I have wanted Pinterest for years, and it is finally here. I process visually, so pictures are the best way for me to remember sites and ideas. Love it!

    I've resisted because I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account,one of which is required for opening a Pinterest account. I've asked Pinterest if this is absolutely necessary and they said yes. So, we'll see how long I resist Pinterest and Facebook/Twitter.

    I LOVE Pinterest. Once I pin something I then bookmark the site it came from so I can go in later and really look and LIFT it for later!!! Ali I also wanted to share this video about a sister and her brother with Down's and Autism. I think you might like it.

    How funny! Everyone seems to be posting about pinterest lately, including me! :) I am a fellow pinterest addict. I use it like you. I used to drag url bookmarks to my desktop but it got all cluttered and I never knew why I was saving it. Now with pinterest I can keep the image I want, with a permalink, and organized by how I will use it. LOVE!

    I'm in love with Pinterest! The inspiration I find is endless: crafts, decorating, parties, color schemes, homeschooling activities... I had no idea how much I would love it.
