Okay, so I know this favorite isn’t original at all, as most of the women in North America are obsessed with Pinterest.
And with good reason. It’s amazing.
But I’m not obsessed.
My goal is to enjoy it’s benefits without allowing it to take over my life!
So, why do I love it?
Basically, it’s a fantastic way to search for ideas, and store what you find in an organized, online space. Before I started using Pinterest, I would find all these great ideas for recipes or crafts, but I didn’t have a good system for keeping track of them all.
Pinterest is wonderfully visual, and now I can remember the new ideas I want to try.
And are there ever things I want to try! Cleaning tips, organizing, home decorating, recipes….It would be very easy to let Pinterest overtake life in general.
My strategy for attempting to keep this wonderful beast under control is to only go to Pinterest when I’m searching for something specific, or when I have the time to really enjoy it. No peeking during the day when I have other things to do.
I really appreciated this blog post by Joshua Becker about how to use Pinterest as a resource, rather than an obsession.
So there you have it. If you want to check out Pinterest, click here.
Okay, confession time! Who’s jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon? Love it or hate it? Any tips for keeping it under control?
Just to let you all know, I’ve been making a few changes to my blog, and have added a “Favorites” menu at the top of the screen. I’m working on listing links to past blog posts, in order to make it easier to search for specific topics. Feel free to check it out for some extra reading!
