Pinterest – New fun site

Just recently I opened a new site called Pinterest.com.  It is like a blog, a place where you can upload things you want to share with others about yourself.

 

The site is made up of “boards” that you create and give a name such as family, pets, things you like, etc., all with photos that appeal to you.  It is up to you to create a board that you want to share with others.  Mine are, right now, Family, Genealogy, Things I Like and my Etsy shop items.  I haven’t finished it because I haven’t put anything in the genealogy board and I would like to have more boards.  I have searched other people’s Pinterest sites and there is a huge variety of themes that can be used.

 

You put things in the boards by uploading pictures.  That is very easy, although I haven’t figured out how to upload pictures from Facebook.  Also you have to be careful loading pictures because Pinterest has the right to use any of your pictures and sell them without your permission if they desire.

 

It’s kind of a fun thing to do especially if you want to promote something.  And it’s a way to share photos of your family in one place.  Take a look at mine at http:pinterest.com/mizmlu.
