I didn’t mean to go to bed at 2am, but I was on Pinterest – me
There is a new(ish) platform in town. A new way to while away hours on the internet: Pinterest.
If you haven’t tried Pinterest before, you can sign up here.
But why would you sign up? Well probably for one or both of the following reasons: 1) It’s a fabulous way to create visual bookmarks of all the beautiful, useful and inspiring articles, sites and images you find all over the web, organised into handy categories or ‘boards’, and 2) If you’re a creator of online content yourself (a blogger, perhaps), then being on Pinterest is a great way to promote your work and showcase your creativity to a new, worldwide audience.
I use Pinterest primarily for foodie inspiration and there’s plenty of it! Here’s one of my own most active boards on Pinterest. It’s focussed on Food (recipe ideas, mostly) and is a collaborative board, which means several other Pinterest users also contribute pins to it, which keeps the content varied, rich and interesting. Please take a look and give it a follow if you feel the urge.
And whether you’re a Pinterest Pro or discovering Pinterest for the first time, I’d love it if you could visit Jenny Henley’s blog, Edspire tomorrow, where she’ll be sharing her experiences of using Pinterest and introducing her messy play board, which was set up in memory of her beautiful daughter, Matilda Mae, and is packed with fantastically inspiring ideas for messy and sensory play.
Until then, keep on pinning x
