I’m proud to be a Pinja! A what, you ask?
There you have it! I’m a card-carrying Pinja, so I gladly join Ms. Kimberly today with a Pinterest post as she comes to the end of her September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge.
For the uninitiated, Pinterest is a pinboard-style website that allows users to save images and categorize them on different boards that reflect their interests, such as food, fashion, media, humor, home design… Hey, if you can imagine it, you can pin it!
I found out about Pinterest soon after I began blogging. I created an account but really didn’t get deep into it until last year. Since then, I’ve been getting my pin on quite regularly. I can be MIA from Pinterest for a while but when I’m on, honey, I’m on! I always joke and say that if I had to choose a bumper sticker, it would read: “I’d rather be pinning!”
What am I achieving with this pinning, you may ask? What keeps me going back for more? And do I ever implement any of what I pin? Well:
- Pinning can be hella funny and therapeutic. You get sucked in by great pictures that link to fantastic ideas and information.
- It’s addictive. FOMO (fear of missing out) kicks in, and you want to check in regularly to see the latest pins from your favorite pinjas.
- And yes, I do use the recipes that I pin (see Wednesday’s post on recipes), as well as the information from other pins on my boards.
Okay guys, here are three of my Pinterest boards. Click on the titles in order to check them out. Enjoy!
Are you Pinterested? What’s your favorite type of image to pin? Which of your boards have the most pins? Least pins?
