I found several friends had signed up, and all had created a few "boards." Each of the boards was dedicated to a particular interest - books, recipes, furniture, travel sites, shoes, etc. All was pretty much as I had expected.
"WOW," I thought. "What a waste of time. Clearly, this lady is addicted to Pinterest. Nothing else explains this!"
Days later, I had pinned dozens of images on my Journalism Board. I felt pleased and satisfied. I thought I was done with Pinterest.
But, for some strange reason, I soon felt the urge to create another board. So, I settled on creating one to highlight my collection of heart-shaped things. Again, I searched the internet for pictures and, again, it took me hours and hours to find what I needed to put the board together.
By the time I started a third board, I had become more familiar with Pinterest and the joys of re-pinning the images others had pinned to their boards.
I've been on Pinterest about a month now, and already I have created 19 boards: Baseball Movies, Been There Seen That, Books I Love, Chocolate Desserts, Classic Interiors, Coffee, Crosses, Cupcakes, Denver, Hearts, Houston, Journalism, My Style, Pretty in Pink, Teapots, Tiffany Blue, Type A, Winston (my dog) and Quotes.
But, I am not obsessed. I simply have a new hobby!
And, in a month, I expect to have even more boards - maybe as many as my friend, Deb.
