So, it’s official. I have total Pinterest love! I love Pinterest and I just have to share my love for it and tell you why.
Let’s face it, social media has taken over the world and isn’t going anywhere. There is a place to share everything you feel, see and do all day, everyday. I don’t know the stats on this, but I would venture to say that most people spend hours upon hours on some social media platform (or multiple ones) per day.
I have to admit that I personally struggle with social media. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon when Friendster began or Myspace or even Facebook. I actually avoided it until I couldn’t any longer.
I’m a private person by nature, so the idea of sharing how I feel and what I’m doing all the time gives me anxiety. I really just don’t want the public to know that much about me. But Pinterest I love because I’m sharing things I like. I enjoy sharing images of products, fashion, event design and weddings, and just things I dig. It’s personal without infringing on my private nature. And it’s fun to see the things other people like too. It’s not intrusive, but you still feel like you are part of a community and you get to “meet” and “know” people that you wouldn’t normally. It’s a nice balance for me.
Pinterest is also a great way to get inspired and create virtual storyboards for all types of design. It’s super popular with for wedding planning because you have a place to store (and reference) all the things you come across that you want for your wedding. I encourage you to join the fun! Follow me on Pinterest for starters and see where it takes you.
