“Pin it and they will come.” I think this may have been what Pinterest had in mind when they started their on line digital pin board site. By the way, they did come! Pinterest ranks #3 among the social media sites and it does not look as if things will be slowing down anytime soon.
Pinterest allows you to share who you are, what you like, what catches your eye and more. It provides for a visually stunning way to share and it is much easier than anything involving scissors and glue. In fact, the site offers a Pin It button that is easily installed on your browser. When you come across a picture you like you simply click on the Pin It button, choose the picture you wish to pin and on which board you want to pin it. Add some thoughts, if you wish, and pin! It is that easy.
Though the site does offer suggestions for naming your boards, you may choose your own names and subjects. I have boards that reflect my love for shoes, the strange Angelina Jolie leg bomb phenomenon, interesting photos that go along with my blog and my adoration for meeting planners, of course. As one who loves to share on the digital landscape, this site had to come into play for me. Has it come into play for you?
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then people are saying a lot on Pinterest. Look me up and let’s follow along with each other! To find my boards click here. Happy Pinning!
