Pinning

Do you "Pin" yet?
If you do, you already are aware of the potential addiction  If you don't "Pin" yet, it's time.  I have wanted something like this for years!  A button to click when I see a picture or recipe or idea I like and then have it saved to one place for me to refer back to.  


Pinterest takes bookmarking to a whole 'nutha level.



What is Pinterest?  (according to their website)
Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and "follow" collections created by people with great taste.
People use Pinterest to collect and share all sorts of things -- wedding inspiration, favorite T-shirts, DJ equipment. You name it, people are pinning it.
We know you have great taste in something. Our mission is to make Pinterest the best place for you to share your taste with the world.

How to Pin:
The easiest way to pin an item is to use the Pin It bookmark. This is a special button that lets you grab an image from any website and add it to one of your pinboards. When you pin from a website, we automatically grab the source link so we can credit the original creator.


Here's a sample of of some boards.  You name your own titles, and pin whatever interests you.


Head over to Pinterest and take a peek.  If you like what you just read, and if you like what you see on the website and if you want to join Pinterest, leave me a comment and I'll invite you.  
Pinners are an evergrowing, yet still exclusive group.  You have to be invited to join Pinterest.  
There's no advertising, fees or pressure.  Just fun.


If you already have a Pinterest account, I'd love to follow you!

  1. I had the same thought about 6-7 years ago and couldn't find anything at the time, so I wrote my own ;) I've been using my homebrew "bookmark db" since then, capturing somewhere in the neighborhood of 1800 different links. Javascript bookmarklets were the key to making it a one-click function. I also added the ability to capture a "cache" of whatever page I had kept the link to, since things sometimes have a way of changing or becoming "pay-for" content. It's pretty remarkable to look back chronologically and see a bunch of links added about the same time period that are thematically related. It's like a journal or sorts!
