When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I started using Pinterest in February of 2011. I’m a very visual person and Pinterest seemed like a great tool for someone like me, who is a digital pack rat and saves everything on her computer!
Why do you like Pinterest?
When I first discovered Pinterest, I fell in love instantly. I saw it as a way to visually sort everything I had ever bookmarked; all my random recipes, pictures of puppies, outfit inspirations, and wish lists. I was hooked right away. I have a board called wedding ideas where I pin wedding tidbits to help inspire my own upcoming wedding. I’m trying to not get carried away on that board because I don’t want to flood my feed and become a “bridezilla.”
You have gained over 528K followers! That’s impressivel! What makes your Pinterest unique?
I think what makes my Pinterest account unique is that I don’t take it too seriously. I pin images of things I’d love to buy and things I want to do, but I also pin images that just make me smile and serve no other purpose than to indulge in eye candy or cuteness.
