If you are part of the "Internet World" the phrase "pin it" has come to have its' very own meaning.
If you haven't discovered "Pinterest" it is a website that is like an electronic bulletin board.
Here is how it works. You create a Pinterest account, and then create boards. On each board, you "pin" things.
It is a way to keep all those great ideas you find while surfing the web. So instead of just bookmarking it on your computer, you can now just click on a picture or idea or project, and "pin" it to one of your boards.
If you visit my Pinterest board, I currently have 14 boards. They are:
*My Crafty Board
*Some of My Favorite Reads
*Books About Idaho's Silver Valley
*Recipes I Want To Try
*Recipes You Should Try
*My Faith in Jesus Christ
*Daniel Fast Recipes
*Ideas for Bottles
*Things To Think About
*Candy Cane/Peppermint Ideas
*Creative Space Ideas
*Peaches Garden Space
*Yard and Garden Ideas--General
I just added a new one today.
So, if I find anything to do with any of these categories, I can click on the "Pin It" button, and it will automatically go to the board I want it to go to.
It is also a great way to search for ideas, then you can repin other people's ideas.
It has become a marketing tool.
For some, it is a major time waster.
I have been pretty good so far of not getting too far sucked in to the Pinterest realm.
But I know I have to be careful!!
