I recently began “pinning” and though I am not addicted to it yet I can see how one could easily get that way. The site appeals to me a lot because I’m a visual person and it’s mainly pictures. I find people to follow that inspire me with beautiful images. I also like to find intriguing ideas like the new way I bring salad to work, thanks to Pinterest. I saw a photo of a jar with salad dressing in the bottom, vegetables, lettuce then cheese and croutons on the top layer—brilliant! The croutons stay crisp while the dressing stays out of harm’s way. The whole shebang is then dumped into a bowl and voilá, it’s ready to toss. So as a social medium it’s truly fun, helpful and a nice change of pace from the usual wordier sites out there!
