On the Bandwagon
So I’m really, really late to the party, and it’s something I thought I’d never do, but if you look over there on the right, you’ll see my new Pinterest link. I snubbed that site for years, in the interest of creativity and privacy, but last week, partly due to the full moon and Ryan working late every night, I decided to bite the bullet. Plus, my bookmarks are just getting way too out of control these days.
Call me a hypocrite, but I’ve found myself perusing the site quite frequently lately. You don’t technically have to be a member to do searches and look at pictures, so I would sometimes wander over before I got my hair cut, when I was looking for ways to decorate with a blue couch, or when I decided to stop coloring my hair. It turns out there’s quite a bit of grey inspiration on Pinterest. And a lot of my favorite bloggers no longer post five days a week, so I’ve started checking out Instagram and Pinterest as a way to see a little bit more from them.
I know lots of people think blogs are past their prime, and bloggers have moved to other forms of social media to share their opinions and influence. I think that’s true in a lot of ways, but for me, at least, Pinterest will just be for my own inspiration. At first, I made all of my boards private, but as I added pictures here and there with the click of a button, I decided I should return the favor and share my inspiration, too. I also added a few boards with my own photos, and I’m sure I’ll add more as I go.
So that’s that. No balloons or streamers or anything. I just thought I’d tell you that I finally jumped on the bandwagon, so feel free to follow me and I’ll gladly follow you back.
