1. pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. people use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite styles and recipes.
2. every blogger's dream.
Okay seriously, let's talk about pinterest. I can speak for most bloggers when I say it's crucial to have one. We get style inspiration for our posts and our clothes from pinterest, it's such a large platform to share images. But it's not exclusive to bloggers! Anybody can have one, and that's what makes it so special. At least that's what I think. You can see what everybody likes and how they categorize their interests. Plan your outfits, your decor, your wedding -- it seems like people plan everything using pinterest these days.
My favorite purpose for the site is inspiration for my blog. I see images and then I think of posts that can relate to the images that I love. My boards titled "style inspiration" and "fashion" are where I re-pin -- it's like reposting something you see one of your followed posted or "pinned" -- the best fashion images that I find relative to my style and what I want to make of my style. Pinterest is a lot of fun for me, it brings out my creativity in trying to recreate looks and images I see and include on my boards. I also love re-pinning words of wisdom, or as I call them, "words to live by." I have a board full of these quotes that are inspirational just like the style and fashion I see, and they serve just as big a role in this blog. They keep me going!
See, isn't this inspirational? It's my favorite quote in my words to live by board. Like I said, pinterest is every blogger's dream. The images, the quotes, the ideas that come from it all is what helps to build blog posts. I think it's a very important part to blogging because it helps create our insight and ideas into what we post and say to our followers. Along with pinterest a lot of my inspiration comes from editorial shoots I see in magazines, but I love the easy access to pinterest, as I have it saved as a bookmark right next to my blog on my computer and an app on my iPhone. What can I say? I just love pinterest and pinning. If you haven't, give it a try. It's a lot of fun! And like I said, it's for everyone. Maybe you'll find great gardening ideas or perfect spots to travel to. There's so much to see.
