For my Favorite website I had to really think about this. I am a huge social media girl with Facebook, Instagram, and many others but for a website that I use as a go to for EVERYTHING: recipes, ideas for parties, games, decoration ideas, wedding ideas, and so many other things I go to Pinterest. I go on Pinterest just about daily, sometimes I even have to force myself to get off of it and start being productive.
Looking for a good screen shot for this blog I got distracted by something i see and then I started to dig into some other things and this 600 word blog took me an extra 30 minutes just because I started to look at things and pin things while in the middle of this. I follow over 1,000 boards on Pinterest and I have 4 of my own boards as well.
Why You Should Use Pinterest
The website it self is easy to use and has many helpful hints if you can not find something you are looking for. Even if you do not know what you are looking for exactly but lets say you are going to be having a baby shower (I recently just did this and used Pinterest). You could start by searching the words “baby shower” and from there it will then give you the option to be more specific and click on key words that you want to add like: boy, girl, food, games, decorations, themes, gifts and so many other things. That is a newer tool that they have added within the last 6-8 months and its great! You don’t have to know what you are looking for and Pinterest will help narrow down to almost exactly what you are looking for.
Many people talk about how our attention span is getting so small well with Pinterest when you are online you can brows through pictures and read small bites about what the item/product is and then click into it if you want to see more. When you click into it even more some have step by step pictures or a video showing you how to do it or make it. I have had a girlfriend who just got married not that long ago and she planned her wedding on Pinterest, from things to the decorations, cake ideas, picture ideas, locations, foods, and so many other things.
Another nice thing about Pinterest is that its not someone sitting online all day making these things up on how to do things or what you should be doing. Its real life people who have done or have seen or have ate the stuff that they are showing you online. And if you have a question about something or don’t understand it or maybe want to change something and you want to know if they person has tried it you can also message them on Pinterest. I have found this to be a great help when I am looking at healthy foods and eating healthy because I am a picky eater so i like to change some of the things out for other things and I now talk with a lady on there regularly about the foods that she put up and then things I can change them out for.
Finally the last thing I have to say about Pinterest, because I could go on and on forever, it doesn’t fill your emails up with a bunch of junk mail! I love it!
