The virtual pinboard, Pinterest, by Cold Brew Labs is a vision board-styled way to share photos. Besides this app, Pinterest also has a website. To join, you can request an invite or receive/accept an invite from someone you know who has already joined. When you first begin, you can choose to connect to Pinterest through Facebook or Twitter.
Once you make your choice, you create a username and enter your email and password. Then Pinterest will ask you to choose a few of your interests being anywhere from art, pets, outdoors, humor, travel, gardening or just about anything else you can think of. Once you make your choices of what you have interests in, you’re asked to create boards (similar to a vision board you would have in your home). You can name your boards and choose the types of pictures you will pin on each board. To give you a better idea of how Pinterest works, I’ve listed my boards and what types of pictures I have pinned to each board.
- Dream Homes: Pictures of kitchens, bathrooms, patios or just homes themselves that I love.
- Majestic Animals: Pictures of animals I think are incredible being whales, lions, tigers, zebras, etc.
- Places so perfect, only God could create: Pictures of gorgeous landscapes all around the world.
Pinterest is an incredible way to enjoy the things you love! Not only can you see all kinds of photos of things you’re interested in, you can also add photos for others to see. You can follow your Facebook or Twitter friends who also have Pinterest. Enjoy seeing their boards filled with pictures of things they love!
Pinterest could also be very useful for someone planning a special birthday party or wedding. Create a special board for the event and add pictures of party favors you want to make, location, decoration and cake ideas and even pictures of hairdos and attire you would like to wear for the event!
Pinteresthas a search button that allows you to get more specific with things you are looking for. If you want, you can choose to follow the category of Wedding & Events, but let’s say you want to be more specific than that. You could use the search button to type in the exact thing you are searching for like invitations or bouquets.
I am in love with Pinterest! I’ve finally found a way to enjoy all the things I love all in one place!
