When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I believe I started using Pinterest in 2011. A friend of mine was raving about this new website and how I needed to get on it. This was when you had to request a special invitation to start collecting pins. I became addicted and have not looked back. I have convinced many friends to create accounts.
Why do you like Pinterest?
I love Pinterest because it speaks to a person’s creativity. You don’t have to be artistic to have a creative board. Anyone can make a board that is personal to them, share that with others, and come to find that millions of people have similar tastes. Pinterest is a great outlet for business owners and for people that are just needing some retail therapy. I enjoy the fact that if I’m needing inspiration for dinner and dessert or what to wear to a cardio workout I teach, I can always rely on Pinterest.
