I’ve recently discovered Pinterest, and I think I am in love. I am way behind the times I know. I was very slow to let Facebook into my life. There’s a definite lag as I examine each form of social media, gradually impart my trust, and then embrace it on some level. But this affair with Pinterest has swept me off my feet. With Facebook, I am still very wary, a little mistrustful. We will definitely always just be friends. Twitter confounds me completely. It just makes no sense to me whatsoever. Pinterest on the other hand, has captured my creative heart. Partly because it does make so much sense, and partly because it’s just so beautiful. It has a definite function, a purpose. It’s my very own beautiful filing cabinet for the internet, and you need a good filing system for the internet. Otherwise it’s too overwhelming. I find things I like, and then essentially catalogue them forever in a stunning format. I feel as though I’m being creative as I pin things, but the reality is that I am being inspired to BE creative.
A friend asked me about a month or so ago if I could link some of my favourite recipes to my blog. When I discovered Pinterest, I knew that this was the best way to do it. It might interest others, or perhaps even inspire.
So take a look. See what you think of my internet filing cabinet.
Here are my Pinterest boards.
