Hi there! It's been a long time since I have done a links of the week post, and I think it'll be a long time until I do another one. Instead, I've been pinning. And pinning, and pinning, and pinning. I'm obsessed with Pinterest. There is a button on my firefox tool bar so that wherever I go on this great wide internet, I can pin pictures that link to articles/shops/blog posts/websites. You can find me on Pinterest here, and see what I spend all of my days and nights doing instead of being productive here. Does anyone else pin? Leave me a comment so I can go visit your boards and follow you!
If you have no idea what Pinterest is, I'm looking at you like this O.o
These are my boards. As you wander the internet, you can pin a picture to your board by going to your account and putting in the url of the site where you found the image. Pinterest looks for images on that site, asks you to choose which one if there's more than one, and then asks if you'd like to comment on the picture. It then puts all of your pictures in one place, organised into boards you name. I love being able to pin a half a dozen pictures of shoes and then look at them all at once before choosing the pair I like the most (and then not buying them because I'm not rich).
As you can see, I have a lot of work to do in the Books Worth Reading section, and have gone overboard on the wearables. But such is life. Go look! One of the best things about Pinterest is that you can click on the image, and it will take you to the original website where you found the image, so, if you're not like me and are in fact rich, you can buy those shoes. :-) Happy pinning
