But, we have to admit, we are huge fans of the latest social sharing site, Pinterest.
While it’s currently following the maiden voyage gmail model of invite only access while developers scramble to get the site fully functional, current members have unlimited invitation privileges, so joining is easy!
(Not a member yet? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll send out an invite right away!)
So, what is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a social sharing website that allows you to save, or pin, photos and ideas you love from the websites you visit into easily accessible collections, or pinboards.
Products you love, images that make you laugh, house decor, inspirational quotes, tattoo ideas, the skies the limit. You make the boards based on your very own categorizations. Once you’ve pinned an item, you can add a description, tag another Pinterest member, add a hashtag, and share your pin on Twitter and Facebook.
And, because Pinterest is a social site, you can share your pins with members who follow you, and that can, in turn, re-pin your awesome finds!
Pinning and re-pinning is as easy as clicking a button! And, no matter how many people re-pin your amazing discovery, Pinterest ensures your image is always credited with the original finder, and the source from which the item came.
Curvy Girl Guide staffers are always on the look out for fabulous finds, and we have several boards that we are endlessly updating for our followers to share, browse and re-pin. Some of our most popular boards are Curvy Girl Motivators that feature quotes and photos meant to uplift and inspire the hell out of you, and Curvy Girl Style is just that – all things fashionable and hot!
Trust me, it’s not hard or confusing, and once you learn how to use Pinterest, be forewarned, it’s completely addicting!
If you’re already on Pinterest, share your link so we can follow you. And if you have a favorite find, we’d love to see it!
If you don’t yet have a Pinterest account and want one, let us know, we’d hate for you to miss out one more second!
