Pinterest is one of the hottest websites, and it’s growing like wildfire. Although it’s accused as being a purely “girly” site, there is enough content on the site to appease every taste. Pinterest is an online bulletin board and social networking site. It thrives on simple and visually appealing images and ideas for the home, but there’s a lot more than just clothes and home decor.
Holiday and Party Ideas: Getting ready to plan for an Over The Hill themed birthday party? Trying to round up ideas for homemade Valentines cards for your kids to pass out? Pinterest is a haven for celebration ideas, from simple and thrifty to grandiose. Type the subject into the search bar and pin away.
Unique Geek Items: Star Wars footie pajamas? Glow-in-the-dark Mountain Dew bottles? Transformers USB flashdrive? Pin images from around the web of your obsessions from mainstream to obscure, and you just might find a kindred spirit with the same obsession.
Health and Fitness Motivation: Trying to get in shape or tone up those abs? Pinterest has more fitness, weight loss, inspiration, and general wellness quotes, pictures, charts, and recipes in one place than you can imagine.
Infographics: If you’re an infographic junkie like me, Pinterest is a great way to discover, share, and promote visual data representations. On my Infographic Pinboard, I’ve pinned images from social media tips to punctuation tips to the evolution of the mustache.
Health and Beauty: Find ways to style your hair for a special occasion, make homemade facial masques, and locate thousands of recipes by searching on Pinterest. Share what products you love by pinning directly from a product site. The pin will give a link on the left sidebar to help you find other related pins from the same site.
