OBSESSED. By now you’ve probably heard of Pinterest. And if you haven’t, you will in 5…4…3…2…1 – someone will have mentioned it to you in the time it took to read that. That’s because it’s an uber-fun, absolutely addicting, everyone-who-tries-it-loves-it, drool tool that you just need to know about. We’ve been using Pinterest since the lazy days of Summer and pin whenever we’re inspired! We’ve created quite a collection of pins over the last 6 months and we’re loving every
wasteful colorful minute of it!
Let us paint a picture of Pinterest for you… Pinterest is basically an online inspiration board where you electronically “pin”, via a browser add-on or via the Pinterest website, something to a “board” you’ve created. It’s a great tool to collect ideas, recipes, photos, inspirations, etc, in an organized and very visual way. And probably the best part of Pinterest? How incredibly easy it is to SHARE content. Your “home page” will constantly be flooded with new images from the “pinners” you follow and you can simply take it all in or you can “repin” to your heart’s delight, collecting all those new ideas on your own boards for later perusal. That’s the basic idea but we think you’ll get a better idea of it if you just take a peek yourself. And here’s a quick peek of ours…
Of course, you can’t use Pinterest until you get an invite. Blergh. But… it’s not too hard. You can request an invite & wait or you can get invited through a friend who is already pinning! Here are some great tips on taking that very first step to your newest addiction.
Oh and most important… make sure you’re following Lilly Pulitzer on Pinterest!! We hope to inspire and repin you!
