How many of you have become aware of and are using Pinterest?
For the uninitiated, Pinterest is a highly visual social medium that's taking the world of creative-minded people by storm. It's a way to peek at the 'creative-inspiration boards' that you might get to see for real in a design studio, except this is the online version of what's inside other people's heads. The format allows a user to click on any blog photo, and 'pin' it to a personalized Pinterest bulletin board of favorites.
Subjects are searchable for the photos they'll yield--Camping, Vintage Trailers, Glamping, Trailer Camping, you name it and you will see it. Users can follow one another and repin images they like onto their own fave-topic boards.
Users also can follow links back to the blogs of image origin. It appears that is is how quite a number of people found their way here to the Girl Camping blog--by virtue of seeing some of its photos on Pinterest.
OK, now back to those of you who already use Pinterest.
* What are some favorite People, Boards, or Interests that you follow? (Help give a Newgal something to get started with.)
* My hunch is that a person could become addicted to Pinterest in relatively short order, once she got the hang of it. Fair assessment?
