Ooooh, this Pinterest lark is dreadfully addictive.
It’s a good job I’m having a few technical difficulties, or I’d be spending all evening cruising the web, pinning like crazy. 9 boards already, and I’ve barely scratched the surface! What I’m finding so interesting about it, though, is that having the images organised and catalogued like that helps me see recurring themes, colours, textures and ideas. It’s sort of sorting out my preferences for me!
At present, I’m having to re-pin from other peoples’ boards, which is fine, but narrows the field somewhat. I’m on an iMac, running Safari as my browser, and I can’t seem to instal the Pin It button for my browser that would let me pin content directly from the internet. I did everything in the instructions, but the download did nothing. Anyone out there got any ideas? Until I get it, I can’t retrieve a lot of images I’ve previously sourced from the internet.
I’ve noticed that almost all Pinterest images are in portrait format. I suppose this means that if you want to get pinned, you should ensure your images are portrait too…
Anyway, if you want to take a look at progress to date, my Pinterest account is also (original as ever) called talltalesfromchiconia.
Right, back to waiting for a response from technical help at Pinterest…. unless one of you out there helps me sort it out first!
