People ask me what's the difference between Pinterest and Facebook? I'm not the expert but in my opinion, which of course I value highly, (lol), Pinterest is where you might find things that lift your spirits, that give you ideas and ultimately ways to connect with others that have like interests. People use it to get fun food ideas, crafty projects, music to inspire you and all sorts of things. At least that is what I see. Some of the participants have business connected with their interests and may guide you there with a link but only if you are interested. Places like Etsy.com and others.
In effect it is like a little bulletin board where you can 'pin' your interests and go back to view them for inspiration or just fun. Of course to pin you need to open an account but you don't have to pin...you can just surf.
For example...I like cats...do you? this link to a Pinterest site is all about cats and how to view them in fun ways.
If it makes you smile that is what I would expect! So if you need a lift you can check out some sites or create one of your own and start your own collection.
Does that get you to thinking? LOL....
It's ok to stay on the fence about it.......do some research. I'm guessing that if you are a blogger you will love it!
