I’ve been hearing about Pinterest but don’t love picture sites where you post pictures of all your kids, pets, travels, etc. I’m just not into putting the good, the bad and the ugly of my life out there for the world to see. After getting a taste of what Pinterest is by looking at some people’s offerings, and getting an invitation, I decided, what the heck, I’m going to give it a try.
I’ve only been on it a few days and I’m totally addicted. Here’s why: Pinterest is a vehicle where you can post pictures of either pictures you’ve taken, or images you’ve found online. Hello! I’m all about sharing pictures of fashion I love. It’s the perfect outlet. You set “boards” up of categories you wish-I set up “My Style” which contains images of fashion I would personally wear; “Style for Female Clients” which contains images of style & fashion that I would introduce my female clients to; “Style for Male Clients” which obviously contains the same idea except for my male clients; “Fashion Shows” which may be images from fashion shows I’ve done or other ones I like; “Celebrity Fashion I Like” which contains images of clothing stars wear that I actually enjoy and last but not least, I just added “Wedding Style” which will contain style for all members of the wedding party. In the future I’ll add more, but this is a good start.
If you see a “pin” (image on someone’s board) that you like, you can “repin” it so it shows up on 1 of your boards. Cool. It always keeps the original source which is very helpful so if you want to purchase something I’ve chosen, you can go directly to the source. It’s like getting totally free style advice from me. Hey, wait a minute, something’s wrong here.
You can also follow people or their specific boards so when they post something new, you’ll be notified so you can check it out. Pretty cool, huh?
