So let’s have a little chat about…
My question to you is this: How do YOU use Pinterest? Do you actually use the information that you gather?
Here’s why I’m asking…
I have a Pinterest account. I created it early last year when everyone else was. It was all the rage, and I wanted in on it.
After a couple of months, it kind of lost its luster with me, and then I neglected Pinterest completely for several months…maybe even a year.
Well now I’m back, I’m using it, I’m pinning, and I’m loving it. The problem is that I find that I have these great boards with lots of beautiful images, inspiring projects, helpful hints and tips…
But I’m like the Pinterest version of Mr. Scrooge. I don’t ever use what I have. I simply want more and more and more. In other words, I have never even once referenced back to my boards. I’ve never actually used any of the ideas I’ve hoarded. I’ve never gone back and created any of the projects I found and loved so much at the time. I kind of find the whole thing a bit overwhelming.
So do you actually use your boards? Do you reference back to them? Have you actually used the tips, hints, recipes, and other goodies that you’ve gathered? Have you actually put your decorating inspiration boards to good use?
Feel free to share any info you have! Help me get out of my rut of pinning but never using.
If you’ve done a Pinterest-inspired project, I want to see it. If you’ve found a tip on Pinterest that is now part of your life and you wonder how you lived without it, I want to hear about it. If you have a Pinterest board that you now reference on a regular basis (e.g., daily, weekly), and I mean actually use, I want to see it. (Shameless plugs for your own Pinterest boards are welcome here.) 😀
Give me the scoop! I want to learn from you. I know that Pinterest is an invaluable tool, so show me how you’ve used it and incorporated the info into your daily life, your decorating, your routine, etc.
(Psstt…did you see my post on the A2D Facebook page about my personal victory? I’m pretty darn excited.)
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
