|As you can see - I'm just starting out!|
Over the years, I have amounted a huge number of browser bookmarks with things that I think were interesting or cool. I've also let a lot of information slide, and now I wish I could remember where those things were - tutorials, recipes, tips, patterns. Even worse was looking down the extensive list of bookmarks and trying to remember based on the name of the website, or the little title I gave it, why I bookmarked it in the first place. This is why Pinterest is my new love.
Now I can categorize, save a nice little description, but also include a picture - all using the little "pin it" button on my browser toolbar. I can share the "pins" with my friends (and other random Pinterest members who happen across them). I can see what other people are interested in, plus I feel like it's another venue to share my own recipes or tutorials that I may have created. Seriously, it's not like I need another social networking venue to spend my time, but it's pretty fun, and may actually be useful (unless that's just my way of validating time spent on it!)
