Very Pinteresting – A New Social Eye Candy Website
At last, something that works for ME! There have been a few really cool looking social websites that I’ve not been able to get into: Flickr, Polyvore, which I blogged about here, and Tumblr, which I’ve tried and failed to use for blogs.
Now there is Pinterest!
Pinterest is a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and “follow” collections created by people with great taste.
Here are some screen images of my Pinboards:
I’ve been using the easy image capture and save functions of Pinterest to save images of miniature foods made from polymer clay – something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time but have been too intimidated by – and miniature knits. This is the bookmarking site that I have been needing. I have been bookmarking various miniature food and dollhouse websites and blogs for a while, but this allows me to compile images from them and still save the source so I can go find them later. The images all put together are gorgeous and inspiring and can be cataloged in many different ways.
Ah! A beautiful new way to waste time!
