Anyone use it?? Just curious as to what it is. Do you have to be invited?

I use it, sparingly. I know many, many friends who are hopelessy addicted to it, LOL! You just have to request it and in a couple of days they send you an invite, it's not like you have to be invited by a third party.

So as I can tell, it's a place that you set up categories of things you are interested in and when you see something on the web you can pin it, so it gives you a link back to whatever the idea was. So say if you like recipes, you could create a recipe category, and as you see a recipe you like you can pin it so you save it for when you need it. I also have kids craft ideas and cakes on mine. Some people pin fashion, or home decorating ideas.

You can also search for things and see what your friends have pinned for ideas.

I just started using it about a month or so ago. I think it's okay, and I find some decent recipes on there, some fun ideas for kids projects, and photography ideas. And like Sarah said, you can look at stuff your friends have pinned and steal those too. I don't spend much time looking though, just browse through when I have some free time. You can request an invitation or have someone invite you.

Thanks for the info! I will have to check it out this weekend. I can hardly keep up with Facebook so I might just use this for new dinner ideas!

Let me know if you want an invite. I've heard that it's easier to invite someone rather than requesting one. I've been on Pinterest for almost a year now! It's a massive time suck but it's a lot of fun.

Oh good. I got sidetracked. Thanks Sarah. Welcome to the time suck! I've got the same user name there too, just in case you want a Pinterest buddy.
