If you haven't heard about Pinterest yet, you might want to double check that you don't live in a cave. Even my mother uses Pinterest!
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
"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."
The Mission Of Pinterest
"Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests."
Is Pinterest Addictive
Everyone who talks about Pinterest at one time or another talks about the way it can pull you in for hours. All those pretty pictures of fun things to see and do! Of course it is addictive!!! However, it can spark creativity in your brain too.
Often we get so wrapped up in all the things we have to do that we have a hard time slowing down so that the creative part of our brain kicks in to create. Browsing Pinterest is relaxing to help us slow down, but exciting enough to hold our attention.
