Pinterest ~ Another time consuming suck you in social network like Facebook?

EVERYONE seems to be pinning these days.
Are you? If not, you should =0)
Another time consuming suck you in network like Facebook?

Have you heard of Pinterest yet?  If not, you should go check it out.  It's a great way to display items that interest you AND keep track of all the cool stuff you come across and then forget about. I Love Pinterest!

"What exactly is Pinterest?"
I've been asked that question many times in the past few weeks.

If you’ve heard the name, but haven’t delved into it, it’s a social media site/tool, allowing users to “pin” things they find online, usually images, to a themed collection, easily viewed and shared by others. The company describes itself as follows: “Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.”
Sounds like pretty much any other social networking tool or site, but somehow this particular one has exploded in popularity over the past few months, after launching quietly in 2010. I think this particular implementation works on two levels. One, it’s primarily visual — you’re literally browsing scrapbooks of interesting things (a bit like a good Tumblr blog, in a way). Second, it appeals primarily to women, who make up the majority of social and casual game players (and should therefore be a key target for anyone interested in gamification).

What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite.

Pinterest runs deep -- don't bother me, I'm pinning
What Can You Do with Pinterest?

and soooo much more!

I've been pinning for several months now and have  found ALOT of inspiration for all areas of my life and home. I Free School  so it has been a excellent tool finding lesson plans and inspirations.

That is where I got the idea for the Hungry Caterpillar Birthday theme for Jaxon's 1 st Birthday Party. Turned out great.

Pinterest is an great site for me when it comes to homeschoolin'. I  free school.
Why pay for expensive learning tools and products when you have the world of education right at your finger tips.
I have started following many bloggers based on thier Pinterest Pins. Gathered an incredible amount of information and ideas to incorporate into my boys learning.
I won't lie, I do spend quite a bit on ink. But I can print out whatever it is we are studying and make my own curriculum. I will go into  free schooling more in tomorrows post.
So, whatever insiration there is to be had at the touch of your finger tips, Pinterest has it!
