Why I love Pinterest

Hey readers,


The past fortnight I have fully emerged myself in Pinterest. I used it prevopusly sporadically but this time I got stuck right in. Went a bit crazy with pinning and now would say I am fully Fletched pinner! I have wrote my case for why I love Pinterest.

1) Escapism – it is a place where I can get lost in beautiful stuff or ideas and not have to go anywhere.

2) Don’t have to spend a penny even though you have put loads of ideas together. Cheaper then visiting eBay.

3) You feel connected in an unusual way with random people. You don’t have to get too personal but you feel a sense of online community.

4) Let’s face it is a great source of inspiration for ideas.

5) Instead of instantly going to Google I hit Pinterest.

6) It is a place to learn something new and stumble on something that you may not necessarily think off.

7) When I am depressed I go there to look at funny pictures, bad parent fails or Pinterest fails and honest it can make me feel so much better.

8) It is a great distraction to eating.

9) It’s great for writers block and there are loads of boards or pins to get your creative juices flowing.

10) It can get you excited the endless possibilities and can help you think in a different direction.

  1. I love this. Seriously Pinterest is perfect for anything! Craft ideas, advice, recipes, photos! Everything! It’s amazing.
    I too go straight to Pinterest, instead of Google now!

  2. I don’t use Pinterest but this is making me rethink! I just wonder whether I would get lost for hours and hours and may never see my family because I’d be too busy looking at pretty tiles and nice meals? But perhaps I’ll dip a toe #KCACOLS

  3. Oh I love it too! Just incredible for inspiration. I have to say that the quotes really motivate me and feel more positive – I’m hooked to – though I haven’t created my own boards yet but I love just to browse #KCACOL

  4. Thanks for sharing.

    I tread carefully with Pinterest as it can quickly be a timesink if I’m not disciplined! The writing pins are brilliant and we’ve been looking at the Steampunk pins for home decorating ideas! It’s also good for wishlists.

  5. I am relatively new to Pinterest (started when I started blogging in Jan) but I am already hooked. You are right that it is a place of endless inspiration! Thanks for linking up with #KCACOLS. I hope you can come back again next Sunday.

  7. Oh I love pinterest too. Its a great escape for me when I’ve got 5 mins spare and just want something really nice and lighthearted to do. Mind you, I can also lose hours there if I’m on at night!!

  8. I love pinterest! I’ve just noticed sadly your link was broken on #TenThings hence why you’ve not had visits from there. I’ll try to fix it on my laptop tomorrow for you πŸ™‚
