You have to get an invite from a friend to join the site but after that all you do is add the "Pin It" link to your Bookmark bar and you are set. Whenever you find something online that you like and want to remember where it is, just click the "Pin It" link and link a picture or video to one of your boards. When you first start your account, Pinterest will give you some boards that are already set up but you can add or delete as many boards as you want. The boards are there as a way to organize all of your pins.
Every time you pin something, your pin is posted to a wall that anyone with a Pinterest account can see. The funnest part about Pinterest is following other people and seeing what they Pin. I find Most of my pins from looking through other people's pins and repinning it to one of my boards.
I usually end up on Pinterest the most on weekends. I really try not to log into Pinterest during the week, because when I go there I am there the rest of the day. One Pin, leads to another Pin, which leads to a website/blog, which leads to another website/blog...before I know it I've got 9 internet tabs open, most of which are Pinterest tabs. LOL
Here comes the confession, I currently have 42 Boards and over 1000 pins. I have boards related to all different things like food, I actually have several of those so that everything is organized, DYI clothing and accessories, craft ideas for both adults and kids, nail/hair/makeup art, quotes to live by and I even have some funny boards, a board that's full of things that remind me of my childhood and 1 board devoted completely to Harry Potter.
Since this is the first time I am telling you guys about Pinterest, I am going to post quite a few of my favorite pins here. I promise not to do one for each board, but there will be a few. I will post links underneath the pictures to the websites where most of these originated from.
