I have just discovered an endless source of time-wasting opportunities – Pinterest. Seems I am a little behind the curve in my discovery, but no matter I am catching up fast, pinning things left right and center. I have found it most useful (so far) for meal inspirations and recipes, and the odd inspirational quote.
Pinterest is basically a virtual pinboard. You pin stuff to your board (well boards in actual fact as you can have one for each topic or idea as you fancy). Other users can then follow your board, or your account, and will see updates as you pin new things. A bit like twitter but in pictures, with comments and likes. Whatever you pin is available for the whole world to see via searches and shares. People can then also repin your posts to their own boards, or email them directly. Its quick, easy and loads of fun. The idea according to Pinterest is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting”.
