I mentioned yesterday that I was tying to figure out the myriad of social media options, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumbler and Pinterest and I am sure there are more that I have missed. I asked because I often feel “out of touch” if I am not abreast on the latest of these tools even if I do not use them.

Although I have a Twitter account I don’t get it, rarely use it and do not think that I am getting anything from it. Facebook is where I re-post things from my blog simply because I was getting so many requests from people who said they did not read blogs but only used Facebook.

Aside from blogging, Pinterest is my favorite social media outlet. I love the fact that I can scroll through photos of recipes, and then pick out an outfit for Fall while looking for a paint color for a project that I am working on, in addition to learning how to make a magnolia wreath for the upcoming holidays! It is like subscribing to every magazine published and being able to “tear” pages from each one and then collecting them in a safe place but not having them take up space in the house.

I am embarrassed to write this but I have over 29,000 pins on 198 boards. Now, in my defense I have been a member for almost two years, so that is is roughly 39 pins a day. When you put it like that it does not seem so crazy, does it?
One thing that I did notice is that I sometimes pin things and never go back to look at the pins. Do you ever do that?
I find that the pins that I often return to again and again are from my Chocolate board where I collect recipes for Once Upon A Chocolate Life; Books where I pin books that I have read or would like to read, Recipes to Try where I have so many pins that I can now make something different everyday and not be finished for 5 years! And of course boards that have anything to to do with Fall and Christmas.
I actually have several boards dedicated to the “most wonderful time of the year”, you can visit my Christmas Desserts board and find a few new recipes to try this season, or you could visit my Christmas DIY board to find a few things to make for family and friends or learn about natural decorating and then find recipes for Christmas parties.
Or you can just go to the “mother board” titled Christmas Love it has over 1500 pins, and highlights all of the best parts of the holidays.
Tell me what do you like/love about Pinterest? Do you have some favorite “pinners” that you follow? What is your favorite board or pin?
Have a great day!
