Cool craft… Pinned. Mmm, that sounds tasty… Pinned. Haha, that’s funny… Pinned.
I love Pinterest. When I first saw it, I thought it was for stay-at-home moms who wanted to find recipes and craft ideas. And it is! But it is also so much more. You can share anything on Pinterest. Favourite books, cool blog posts, silly memes, hair and make up tips, and yes, recipes and crafts.
I have 20 different boards now, ranging from fitness to funny stuff to writing tips to links to my own writing (such as this here blog!) and that seems like a good amount for the moment (until I find a new interest that I must document and explore via pinning!).
Pinterest is also helpful for my writing. When I get stuck or need inspiration, there are plenty of pins that help get my creativity flowing again. Scenery and architecture pictures are great for figuring out a good setting for my story to take place in. Pictures of people are great for characterization. And inspirational quotes are great to motivate me to keep going! Especially those pictures of Loki telling me to WRITE! 😛
Pinterest is a great visual way to share, create, and inspire. Hence why it is one of my favourite social media websites 🙂
