On the Bandwagon

Walking with Cake: Rose Decay wallpaper by Ellie Cashman Design

(My sample of Rose Decay wallpaper by Ellie Cashman Design.)

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 linkI 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.
