It’s officially 2012.
Where have I been? What have I been doing? Silly to even think that anyone cares if I’m not blogging, posting on Facebook or updating my Twitter feed. Maybe someone cares. Maybe you’re reading this and you care.
I hope so.
Sometimes social media and blogging feels lonely. You’re sharing thoughts, feelings and your life but if the tree falls in the forest does anyone hear it? I wonder. Often actually but then I’m reminded that this is for me and I do blog as a business but also because I love it. Isn’t it better to have something to write about than just write to write because I’m supposed to? That seems pointless.
Where I have I been? Besides catching up from the holidays, work and family life I’ve been diving into Pinterest like a chocolate lover might dive into a bowl of chocolate and not come up for air. Like a child might lick a sucker and not realize what is all over their face unit the last juicy lick is licked. Pinterest is something I resisted. Attempted to ignore but the tweets, posts on Facebook and even my sister convinced me that I might very well be missing out. Even my own stats showed Pinterest traffic!
What is Pinterest?
The website says:
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
For me, it’s been about a collection of things virtually. I could print the ideas and pin them up to look at or I can use this virtual site to collect all the goodies I find online. Oh, but not just what I find but what others find which makes the site utterly addicting!
From adorable photos that make my ovaries ooze.
To must do photo ideas to use with my own daughter.
Genius ideas like this do it yourself air freshener!
The site is a collection of great ideas. Pinterest for me is about inspiration, sharing, collecting, wishing, hoping and creative online minds coming together. A place where I have ideas for holidays, what to wear, how to decorate, go green, save money and what my dream home might someday look like if I could build it from scratch.
This is where I’ve been! Join me.
