Do you know what the big deal is about Pinterest? I know there have been a ton of posts lately about how cool it is, but if you haven't checked it out yet, you may be wondering what all the hype is about.
I'll try to explain this simply, like I'm explaining it to my Mom. God bless her, but when she just came to visit and I asked her to click the play button on the Netflix that was streaming on the computer screen, she looked all over the mouse itself to find the play button. Sorry Mom, haha. Anyways, on to Pinterest!
Basically what you have here is a way to bookmark websites. Instead of calling it a bookmark, they call it a 'pin.' Instead of putting the bookmarks into folders like you normally would using IE, Firefox, or Chrome, you create 'boards', which are just your categories of your 'pins'.
If you are in the mood to browse other peoples pins, just click on either 'Discussions' or 'Everything' from the Pinterest navigation bar. From there, you can pick a category if you'd like.
So have I convinced you to try it out yet? Good! Last that I saw there was a wait list of a couple weeks (not sure what it is now), so if you want to leave your email address, or email me directly with it, I can send you an invite. (jamhandsblog at gmail.com)
