I’ve had a Pinterest page for about a year and a half, and I’ve noticed that at times, I wonder what would I have done without the site. Other times, I wonder why I even started one. Today, I start with the good things.
1 — Helpful bookmarks all on one page with pictures. Found a cool recipe? Pin it! Want to show my stylist a hair color I wanna try? Pin it! Then I can bring it up anytime I want on the computer or my phone or my iPad.
2 — I never knew there were so many freakin’ uses for baking soda. From cooking to cleaning to skin care, why doesn’t this just come in a thirty-pound box that we can store in the bottom of our pantry?
3 — OMG, y’all… the recipes! If I wanted new ways to cook chicken, I had to Google it, but now I can find a Pin that links to a site with 25 recipes. All. In. One. Spot. At Christmas, I wanted to find appetizer recipes with filo dough, and all I had to do was type “filo dough” in the search box. Yesterday, I saw a recipe for pumpkin bread with pumpkin buttercream frosting drizzled with salted caramel topping. Holy. Nomnom.
4 — Finding tips and advice. A couple of months ago, I was getting frustrated with how our whiteboards/dry erase boards at work were just looking horrible, so I searched Pinterest for “cleaning whiteboards” and found dozens of pins with all sorts of tips to try.
Next week, I give you five things I hate about Pinterest.
