Have you ever searched the Internet and found the perfect idea or recipe, only to look for it later and come up empty? Enter Pinterest. A virtual pinboard, Pinterest is a place where you can find, organize and share all those ideas you find while surfing the web and keep them right at your fingertips.
Instead of file folders full of clipped articles and photos cluttering your home, you can keep everything online.
You can use Pinterest to create your own pinboards for recipes, decorating or even just for saving beautiful photos you come across for that time when you want to look at them again.
You’re also able to browse the pinboards of other members, getting ideas, tips and inspiration.
And the best part of Pinterest is that it’s easy to use
and it’s free!
Once you create an account, simply by using your e-mail and a password, or by using Facebook or Twitter, the world is at your fingertips. You’re then able to set up boards for anything you wish – recipes, home decorating, do-it-yourself ideas, weddings, fashion or party planning – whatever your interests.
You can take ideas from Pinterest and repin them to your own personal boards, or you can use the bookmarklet that Pinterest provides for your browser – Pin It – to pin ideas from around the web.
You’re able to add your own descriptions or comments to your pins as well – a good idea for remembering why you pinned the idea in the first place.
If you want to test the waters without committing, you can use Pinterest online and browse through the unlimited ideas waiting there. You won’t be able to create boards and pin without joining, but you can find out if Pinterest is for you.
With recipes, DIY projects, jokes, quotes, decorating ideas and much more, the possible uses for Pinterest are endless. And with millions of pins added every week, you’ll find lots to love on a virtual pinboard near you. Happy pinning!
Pinterest is a website where you can create and share ideas from a wide range of subjects:
• Wedding or party planning. Set up a board for your upcoming wedding or event, and when you find, ideas you like from other pinners or out on the web, you can keep them in one place to reference later.
• Gift ideas. Pinterest is full of DIY divas who have tons of great ideas for homemade gifts. Collect some of your favorites, and start creating!
• Style & fashion. Want new hairstyle ideas? Amazing makeup tutorials? Fashion combos? Beauty tips and clothing creations abound on Pinterest.
• Articles. If you are constantly trying to remember where you saw a certain article relevant to your job or something you were researching, create a board on Pinterest to collect bits of information you’ll need later.
