When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I started using Pinterest in 2011. I received an invitation to join and instantly fell in love. I had wanted something like this for quite a long time. One of the reasons I started a blog was to catalog images I found on the internet. I always found it frustrating that there wasn’t something similar out there. I used to save tons of images to my hard drive and organize them in folders but it was difficult to find where the image was originally from. Pinterest made it really easy to organize images and also link back to the source.
