I can’t remember where exactly I’d heard about Pinterest, but I applied for an invitation, got one, and am now going hog-wild over being able to create inspirational pinboards.
For a long time, I’d been hoarding images of interiors that I loved on my own hard drive, and upon the advent of my computer woes in November, I realized that if anything catastrophic was planned for and I hadn’t taken necessary precautions, I’d have been in trouble. I like that I can keep the images on someone else’s server, I have wide access to more images than just through Google and my RSS feed, and it works pretty seamlessly.
For now, the only drawbacks are a) no widgets through Pinterest directly, and b) no easy backing up option of your pins (Backupify would be my go-to…).
Some of my boards for your viewing pleasure:
Right now, I believe that it is still invitation-only, so if I can hook you up with a Pinterest invite, I’d be more than happy to. Contact me through the comments section, or through my email: styckywycket at gmail dot com.
