What is Pinterest you ask?  Pinterest is this wonderful new website where you can catalog and share images.  If you see an image on your favorite blog, or website like or even have an image saved on your computer, you can “pin” which simply means tag or upload it to your Pinterest account.  You can categorize your images under boards like the ones below.  This site is much more than just an online photo album, however.  Yesterday, I wanted to find pictures of bohemian bedrooms so I simply typed “bohemian bedroom” in the search bar and up came hundreds of bohemian bedrooms.  The search only drew from Pinterest account users so the images were just what I was looking for.  If I had done this search through Google I would have gotten random images not all of bedrooms, but probably bohemian furniture, people and places.  With Google I would have had to sort through pages upon pages to find 2 or 3 great images, but with Pinterest you will have 100 great images pop up on the first page alone.  I can easily admit that I’m obsessed with Pinterest.  You should try it!

    Type "Kat Tanita" in the search tab then click on the little magnifying glass. Then click people. I should be the 4th or 5th person to pop up!! :)

    Clearly I have never searched for someone before—because that was too easy. I'm following you now :) Thanks! Danica
