When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I believe I created an account around 2011. Pinterest was something I randomly discovered while online. I liked the idea that you could visually arrange images that you wanted to remember. I immediately requested an invite. Since joining, pinning is something that has been a part of my daily activities.
Why do you like Pinterest?
I often forget words, but images stick with me. So the idea that I can pin pictures to my own personalized boards is very appealing to me. I had a million bookmarks that I’d forget about having. With Pinterest, all of my favorite finds and likes are in one spot. The most interesting thing to me about the process of pinning itself is the curating element. I enjoy the process of adding a pin to the board which has the best aesthetic fit. (more…)
