Waitin' on Pinterest



Now a word about Pinterest.




A while back I noticed Pinterest. Some blogs were writing about this brand new way to categorize and post pictures of things that were of interest to them. They said it was addictive.


I checked it out.


and I said  "Ehh."




I went on with my life.




I read things like " Hey look at this idea I got from Pinterest!"




and I said "OOoooo"




I went on with my life.




I read about a cool new party idea from a bloggy friend and she wrote " I got it from Pinterest."




and I said "Cool."




So after months and months I went back on Pinterest and checked it out again.




"OK," I said "I'll join." But the only way to join is through invite only. I could browse, but I couldn't join in the fun!


Alrighty then, I'm back at the High School dance where all my friends get to boogie oogie oogie and I am left watching their purses.

      "Hey, I wanna dance too!"  The only problem was that Pinterest was now holding all the cards. They said "UH UH, not so fast. Now you have to wait."


so I waited


             and waited


                    and waited.




My friend texted me to ask me if I had checked out her pin boards.


What? she had just applied......she got in the very same day!





There  I am

  4. I too found it very odd that I had to wait to join, like I was being vetted to ensure I was suitable or not!

  6. I really enjoy being a part of Pinterest but lately I have been so busy I have not been participating much. But it is nice to know it is waiting for me because I draw so much inspiration from it. I feel that you will too. Enjoy!

  9. I have not been able to figure out their process for applying. It took me only a day or so to get in, but I had a friend who waited over two weeks! Hmmmm... Glad you finally got through! It has revolutionized the info that I have at my fingertips - recipes, crochet patterns... I love the site. Hope you enjoy it, too!
