When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
My friend invited me to join Pinterest in 2010 when you could only join by invitation. Before Pinterest I would cut out pictures from magazines and keep them for inspiration and ideas. I was also not very computer savvy, so rather than bookmark websites I would write down my favorite ones on paper and organize them into different categories. Pinterest was the perfect answer to my digital organizational needs, and it turned out to be so much more!
Why do you like Pinterest?
I love Pinterest… you might say I am a little addicted. It’s a bit like looking through a magazine without having to read overly dense or boring articles. It’s also a place to find inspiration and creative ideas and to keep them all in one place – my enormous and handy online bulletin board! I also enjoy following other pinners and seeing what yummy food, beauty videos, inspiring quotes and travel pictures they have collected.
You have gained over 3.9 million Pinterest followers! That is so impressive! What makes your Pinterest unique? (more…)
