Uses For Pinterest

Introduction:Pinterest is a site that lets you "pin" photos from throughout the web. When I first was invited to it, I didn't really see how it could be all that useful. However, I've since found many uses for this site. Here are my top five.

  • 01

    Party Planning

    Planning a party can be a lot of work when it comes to putting all the ideas together. With pintererst, ideas are much easier to organize. For my daughters' first birthday, I'm planning a winter themed party. I've pinned ideas for the snowy cake, snowflake decor, and even what she might wear. Seeing all these photos together sure makes planning easier. I can pin anything that I might want, then review all the photos on my board to decide what I really want to do.

    Gift Ideas

    I've created boards for anyone I have to buy gifts for and whenever I find anything online that might be a good gift, I pin it! When it gets closer to the birthday or holiday, I can browse all my pins to choose what I want to buy.

  • 03

    Recipes

    There are many sites that let you store or bookmark recipes, but Pinterest makes recipe organization even more fun. Instead of having to read a lot of descriptions when choosing what to make, you can just browse through a page of pictures and pick whatever looks the best at the moment :)

    Photo Ideas

    If you love to take photos but have a hard time coming up with ideas, Pinterest is for you! Pin cute photos of kids so you can do similar things for your own kids. Pin pretty local places so you can remember to visit those places to take photos. Instead of trying to remember the ideas you saw, you can pin them and have a whole slew of ideas at your fingertips.

    Things to Buy

    The last thing I use Pinterest for the most is my shopping list! Pinterest allows you to enter a price on the products you pin so you can easily see in one board how much the various things you pinned cost. So if I'm shopping for a chair, for example, I'll pin a bunch of chairs I like with their price over the course of a few weeks. Then I can go back to my "chairs" board and review them all side by side to choose what I want.




Final Thoughts

There are many uses for pinterest! If you think the site seems silly at first, just go slow. You don't have to think up all your boards as you can easily create new boards whenever you pin something. Just sign up, put the "pin it" link on your browser, and browse the web as you normally would. Soon you will realize there are plenty of things to pin! Enjoy!
