A little while ago I was invited by pinterest to take part in the #PinItForwardUK campaign. 300 bloggers in the UK would be introducing pinterest to the UK and spreading the word.
I feel inclined to start with a warning. I think it's only fair. pinterest is utterly addictive. I have been a dedicated pinner for a long time now and I love it. It provides me with hours of fun and is the perfect place to store and manage all the things found online which inspire or simply amuse.
I realise I am probably preaching to the converted but for those who haven't joined the party, I will share why I love pinning.
pinterest is a virtual pinboard which makes it really easy to keep track of inspirational links found through the internet. Simply pin an image to one of your pinboards. Gone are the days of frantically searching for that illusive tutorial, perfect fabric, gorgeous home, delicious recipe or dream holiday destination.
You can easily organise your pins using individual boards. I pin recipes to my Food Glorious Food board, beautiful homes to my Home Inspiration board and tutorials to my favourite board Crafty. It is really great to have easy access to ideas when I want to make something.
pinterest also allows you to find and follow other lovely pinners. Another great source of new inspiration. If you are interested in joining you can register with pinterest here.
I am pleased to introduce Annaboo's House who will be sharing her pinterest experience tomorrow. Pop over and visit.
