I was talking to a few of the other teachers at school the other day and I mentioned Pinterest. I was totally thrown that they didn't know what it was. I mean who hasn't heard of Pinterest? Maybe you haven't? If you haven't, you totally have to check it out. I love Pinterest.
In the past, I used to search the web for ideas for crafts or something for the house, or articles about something or other. Once I found something I wanted to go back to, I would bookmark it. Weeks later (or even longer) I would want to find it again and I would have to search through bookmark after bookmark trying to find it. Quite often the name of the site would have nothing to do with the item I was looking up.
Then along came Pinterest. Now I can "pin" a picture of the item I was looking at, on a board. I can have as many boards as I want and I can give them names so that I can find things easily. Now when I want to look up all those fabulous Christmas ideas I found last year, they are all in one place.
How easy is that? I can also follow people or boards. When somebody I follow pins something, I'll see it in my feed. Now I don't have to search the web for great ideas, I can just re-pin items that other people have sent. What a time saver.
If you want to check out my Pinterest boards, you can find them here.
