I use Pinterest and LOVE it!

It’s basically a bookmarking site but also so much more. You install this button on your web browser tool bar and so whenever you come across an image that you like (on a blog, website etc..) you click the button and choose the image you want to save. Pinterest then “pins” the image to a “board”. You can create different boards for different things and share them if you like so thats where the social networking comes in.

The best part of Pinterest is that when you click on an image on your board, it will link back to where you found it. So you can create great inspiration boards and then go back and find where something came from.

You can also follow other people’s boards which is cool because you can find images for your own inspiration. There are also things you can do with facebook and twitter to share your pins.

You can see mine here

Right now the site is still inviation only but I got my invitation a couple days after applying.

@scadadle15: Pretty much summed it up! I love Pinterest.

Just beware of its time eating capabilities and avoid it when you’re procrastinating 🙂

If anyone wants an invite let me know.

This is a really cool feature.

I thought I’d let you guys know about something that I use and love.

It’s called evernote.

It’s allows you to sync up documents to your cell phone, desktop, and internet.

So I can view all my wedding documents ANYWHERE.

I was in Crafts 2000 yesterday and I had synced all my DIY tutorials to it and I viewed it from my droid phone and got all the supplies I needed!

 

It’s amazing!

I looove Pinterest! I cant get enough of it. Ive been on weddingbee less in the past week or so because of it. It is my most favorite site! I use it to keep images of things I like – home decor ideas, DIY ideas, gifts I want to remember for people – basically just a great way to bookmark things. I also have invites if anyone wants one (you can get started faster if you have an invite – you might have to wait up to 2 weeks or so if you try to sign up with the site)

I really like Pinterest. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it can be pretty slow. I think they’ve grown faster than they were expecting so sometimes when I try to pin something it doesn’t work or takes a long time to get it to put it on the board I want.

I use pinterest and love it, the thing I love about it, is that if you ever see an image online you can pin it, instead of saving it and you will have it on your board with the link to it:) I request an invitation last december and about 3 days later I was in!

I would said is more of a bookmark image thing, i don’t see the social network on it, you can comment and follow other members but since i’m the only one of my friends using it I guess I’m not that into it, but it can work:)
