Pinterest – I was ahead of everyone else on this!

I read a lot and I mean a lot and I read about Pinterest in June 2010 (click here for proof) and immediately signed up.

I was gleeful about this new little site. It took all of my favorite magazine tear sheets from boxes in my house and put them neatly on one page for the world to see.

I told everyone I knew about this site and they all looked at me puzzled. They had no idea what I was talking about. I even wrote three blog entries about it in June 2010 to no avail. Now it’s all the rage and when people ask me about it I look at them and say “Um yeah I knew about Pinterest two years ago and no one listened to me.”

Let’s just say that once again I was ahead of the curve and ahead of the trend.

Pinterest – My New Obsession


I discovered Pinterest through Peggy Wong of Blue Pool Road and it’s my new obsession.

I bookmark a lot of interesting articles and images on Delicious and so many of what I bookmark has beautiful visuals that go with the articles or blog entries.

You can create Pin Boards through Pinterest and I created this one using the theme of “Things April Loves Right Now”

They include such things as:

Beautiful Initial Letterpress Cards from Delphine Press, courtesy of the Beautiful Paper blog

A Model T Car you can rent and drive through Yosemite, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times

Images of my favorite actor, Montgomery Clift, shot by Richard Avedon, courtesy of the New Yorker magazine

The Desk of Fritz Karch, Editorial Director of Collecting at Martha Stewart, courtesy of Martha Stewart Living magazine

Al Gore’s incredibly messy desk, courtesy of Time magazine

The possibilities are endless with this new website.
