Aside

So Pinteresting you’ll keep coming back for more.

20 Oct

In case you didn’t know, Christmas is 66 days away! You can check out the exact time until Santa packs his sleigh and heads your way here. You’re welcome. The reason why I am starting out this post about Christmas, other than the fact that I just LOVE Christmas, is because I’ve recently have to do research on Pinterest and what’s better than Pinterest right now other than the Christmas crafts?

Pinterest has always been my means to slacking off when I’m bored, waiting on someone, or when there happens to be computers in my classroom and I just can’t help myself. Did you know that that Pinterest is tied in second place with Tumblr for most time spent on a social media website? The average time spent on Pinterest is 89 minutes a month. I can honestly say that I have a large part within this statistic. I probably spend 89 minutes a day on Pinterest. AT LEAST. I’m honestly getting sidetracked by Pinterest while trying to write this blog.

For those seldom few of you who aren’t blessed to have been graced by the presence of this website, they recently ended their closed beta phase in August and EVERYONE can join now… without an invitation. You’re welcome.

If you don’t already have a Pinterest, I know what you’re thinking. Why would I get another social media outlet? Because it’s awesome! Where else can  you organize crafts you’ll never do, plan an imaginary wedding, and publish the latest fashion trends that you can never afford? Nowhere. Pinterest is where it’s at and I encourage you to join.

I know there is a lot of controversy circling this medium concerning copyrights, but to enjoy this medium all you have to do is be smart about it. This general rule can be applied to ALL forms of social media that you may already be a member of. Get informed first and enjoy later. I can assure you that the good weighs out the bad. Seriously, CHRISTMAS CRAFTS! What else more could you need?

So for those of you fellow pinners out there, go check out my boards. Not only will you find some nifty ideas, but if you pay close attention to the “Buy me this.” board, you will know what to get me for Christmas/Birthday/just for funsies. For those of you not already on Pinterest, get one. Try it out, and if you don’t like it you can always delete it. I can almost guarantee, though, that  you will find something that keeps you addicted. Crafts anyone?

Here’s a look at a Pinterest creation gone horribly wrong. NAILED IT!
