We all have our little weakness and foibles, some serious some just a way defining who we are in this crazy space. For me one of those little weaknesses is Pinterest, a site I have written about before and most probably will do in the future. I have discussed the site with other devotees and they have all said the same – once you are hooked it becomes very addictive. It is a harmless addiction, that is unless you have some work to do then perhaps your employer might not take such a charitable view – this is a problem I don’t suffer from anymore.
From time to time it is necessary to spring clean the boards to ensure all the pinned images are in the right place and create new boards to reflect your current interests. What I have discovered doing this is that there are so many interesting images I had forgotten about – but I guess that is the problem that Pinterest was designed to overcome. However, as with all ‘free’ Internet services they have to be paid for and so amongst the images being presented there are those from companies trying to sell you something. This is a shame but what you gain far outweighs the annoyance.
