For the past month I have had a crazy obsession. As with most obsessions, it is a complete time-suck and consumes my precious free time. The worst thing about it is, it's an online obsession. After staring at a computer screen all day at work, the last thing I want to do is spend my free time in front of a computer, yet there I am. I consider my obsession to be one of the best internet services of all time--pure freakin genius. As a 'visual' and 'creative' person, I really had no fighting chance against it. I have also gotten my sister hooked. Now for the reveal...my obsession is Pinterest, a site that let's you keep track and organize pictures and content you find online (more here). Instead of saving url links and not being able to find them later, all I need to do is 'pin' the picture from the website and Pinterest will save the picture on my virtual pinboard and the link back to the site where I found the picture. I can create as many pinboards as I want to organize my pictures and links (i.e. Holiday Baking, Halloween, Etsy Finds). Pinterset also makes it easy to discover more content and ideas and allows me to follow other pinners who share my style or interests. You need to have a Facebook or Twitter account to join. If you do not have either of these, then you can easily create a Twitter account and get started pinning. Check out my boards and my sister's. Here are some of pins from my 'For the Home' board...
Here is what my main Pinterest page looks like, which shows all my recent pins as well as any pins from the people I am following:
