Have you heard about Pinterest?

How do I explain what Pinterest is… ok; imagine a place where you can store all those photos and ideas you come across on the net. A place that by ‘pinning it’ you could track it to a specific pin board that you’ve created [ you can have as many as you like, and call them what you like] AND it will track where you ‘pinned it’ from; so if you ever need to go back, or use it in a post you will know who to give credit to.Its also a place where like minded people can pin your pins, where you can share your pins and have discussions about your pins. Its great for planning your wedding, decoration your house or just a place to while away a few minutes and look at some fabulous things!

Its SO easy to use. Once you get accepted [ you do need an invite to join] you install a little ‘Pin It’ button to your internet browser [ it sits just below your address bar] and anytime you see a picture or idea on the net you like you just click ‘Pin It’ and it will ask which of your boards you would like it sent to. You don’t even have to log in to do it!

Here’s a little sneak peak of what my Pinterest account looks like.

So you’ll see here I’ve a number of different Pin Boards, and on each of these a number of Pins [pictures]… people can follow you or just a specific board. I think you’ll agree for those interested in blog it is a must, no matter what you topic is!

I really am at a loss to put into words how amazing pinterest really is… the best thing I can say to you is log onto www.pinterest.com and get yourself an invite to join! Oh and once you do, do ‘Follow’ me and drop me message to follow you back! – and if you’re already on pinterest do stop by and say hi! You can also ‘follow me on pinterest’ by clicking the shiny red button over there to the right!

I gotta give a big shout out to a fellow Wedding Blogger, Lisa over at Bride and Joy who first told me about Pinterest! [P.s. stop by her fab blog too for wedding ideas with the Quirck Factor!] Much love Lisa!

    Yeah, you're definitely a pininterest fan. Every post has content from it. Not that I don't love pininterest.

    Hey Aoife,

    ha ha so true... although that is mostly cause I can 'pin' the pics as I see them and save for future posts, knowing that people can find the original sources!
