pin it

by Lori and Michelle on October 13, 2011

Look what we joined…

Yep you can find the twins over on Pinterest!

We joined yesterday, so still extremely new to it. Still learning how it works.

We would show you our boards, but to be honest they are kind of empty.

But it has been fun, we can see how people say they can be pinning for hours. So much to look at.

And like Averie mentioned the other day, Pinterest is fun because it is visual, which is one reason we love instragram.

Social media has gotten out of control – yes or no? So much to keep up with,  which can be a little over whelming sometimes.

What are your thoughts on social media? Do you like having all these options? What is your favorite social media tool? Check out this list of social media tools …some we have never even heard of??

Next thing we are contemplating about joining is google+. Anyone have any thoughts about this? Should we do it? Why?

till next time

I try to limit computer time because it gets exhausting and I can easily spend hours at a time on it, even when its mainly reading and researching.
But I do loveee pinterest :)

I’ve been avoiding Pinerest, but I love the idea of it. I’ll probably cave in and get an account eventually because I just adore looking at beautiful pictures and products. I do everything with images, anyway, because I hate reading through lists.

By the way, I love how you have your workout list at the right! Love it!

I love Pinterest! I think mainly because I am a very visual person, so too much bookmarking clutter is overwhelming. I think social media is a really powerful tool, more so than people recognize, and is such a great way to get your presence out there. I do think there are a few too many social media tools, and it gets really hard to keep track of all of them! So many accounts…

I got accepted for an account but haven’t done anything with it yet. I’m scared of the time suck it may be and I can’t afford that right now! I know I’d love it though, I love inspirational boards, images, quotes and all the good stuff so much!

I’m still figuring out Pinterest, too! (my boards are pretty empty…) I’ve found that I can spend hours on there, if I’m not careful, and all of the sudden I want things I didn’t even know existed! Eek. ;)

Loving Pinterest and thanks for linking back to me :) But as I said in that post, ALL the different social media channels can be overwhelming…but of everything from FB, Twitter, Stumble…Pinterest is definitely a new fave. And so is Instagram. I love following you two on IG too :)
