When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I started using Pinterest in 2010. I remember having to wait to get an invitation. Once I got my Pinterest account, it was immediate love… okay, obsession.
Why do you like Pinterest?
One of the great things about Pinterest is that it is so intuitive. I can just click the button and choose a board. My brain can sometimes be a chaotic place, with all the information floating around in there, and Pinterest offers a way for me to organize all those thoughts, ideas, inspirations and images. I have frequently made or done the things I’ve found on Pinterest. I also use Pinterest as a search engine. Whenever I want to explore a topic, I come to Pinterest. I like the way all of the subjects are already curated. It cuts through the nonsense of the internet. I also like Pinterest because it’s so visual. It’s a place I can be without words. As a writer and teacher, words are my business, but sometimes I get tired of talking, writing and reading. I like letting the visual inspiration take over. (more…)
