I’m on the last week of edits so no craft is happening, but at least this Pinterest thing has provided something to blog about this week.
I have a plan coming together. I’m going to:
Take screen grabs of the image from pins I’d like to keep
Save the website address from each pin as bookmarks in my browser
Put the tutorials and information sources under pages on this blog
Put inspirational pics in folders on my desktop, as I used to do
Visit the “Pin” pages of pinners I particularly like following
Continue using the search feature to find interesting things
Keep my writing-related boards
Recently I noticed in StatCounter people are coming to this blog from StumbledUpon and Indulgy. Since that’s how I found Pinterest in the first place, I decided to check them out. StumbledUpon seems to be the “picked for you” bit of Pinterest in overdrive. Indulgy is a visual bookmarking site, as Pinterest was in the beginning, with a similar search feature.
I signed up to the latter. There’s no app for Indulgy, but it seems to work okay in Safari on my iPhone and iPad.
I’ve also been thinking of checking out Flickr as a source of craft inspiration.
