I AM A BONAFIDE PINHEAD


Are you a pinhead?  Do you find yourself  making excuses to check your latest Pinterest notifications to make sure you aren't missing any juicy images or inspiration?  I do not consider myself prone to addictions, as I am fairly laid-back and moderate about most things. I can make a single bag of Nestle toll house chips into dessert for about 5 months. I am going to have to watch myself here, though. I never got into Facebook much, as I consider it more of a necessity for business than an outlet for entertainment or enjoyment (all of those petty status notifications seem very narcissistic and ludicrous) but Pinterest is seriously addictive, especially for the highly visual individual (ME!).  I think it's an absolutely genius invention and I know I am going to have to curb myself so that it doesn't take over TOO big a slice of my time pie.
What about you? Do you love it or what? Follow me here.

LOVE it, and I am the same way! How could you not love it, Anne? So much to look at. It is wonderful to be able to have the material that you truly love to post and to look at! Agree with you though, I have to pace myself.
Happy Friday.

Hi Anne,

I'm afraid I'm addicted also. I need to set a timer or limit my time somehow, but I always lose track of how long I've been pinning.

I just clicked over to follow you. For some reason I thought I already was. Pinterest usually automatically hooks up followers of blogs to follower their Pinterest. Hmmm.

I'm concerned about copyright problems. There are a lot of discussions going on. Wish I knew the answer.

Sarah said...

Ohhhh yes, Anne, I am addicted...I went through the early addiction but it seems I just check in and next thing I know, half an hour of pinning has gone by and I sit thinking, 'just one more' - I even log out and see a great pic and log back in!!!! 'Pinterest Anonymous' might not be a bad idea for us addicts!! ;-}

Dear little pinhead(-: if you look at your boards you have a color theme going. Pink and orange and happy. You should be a buyer for a chic department store. Have a great weekend.

Tania Maree said...

It should come with a warning and a recommendation to a good addiction counsellor......
I'm already following your nice looking pins ;o)

Oh Anne...I am right there with you! Now a follower of yours...it is my little treat but I have to monitor my time! Serious marketing going on there...one day I pinned a cute t shirt, and it was "re-pinned" from my pin 350 times in ONE day! Crazy...
Have a wonderful weekend,
Nathalie

Oh gosh, I think I might have to join a support group for people who spend too much time on Pinterest! I have been known to loose hours!

I like pinterest. It's a great way to organise what I find interesting in the web. Plus, I can pick and choose people that have similar tastes to mine.
