I’m not an interior designer! I don’t sew! I’m not interested in jam making or shoes!
Why on earth would Pinterest be of use to me?
Easy. It’s a fabulous tool.
The bookmarks in your browser, can you remember exactly what each one is for?
With Pinterest you have a series of pin boards, as many as you want each one covering a different topic. And you can “Pin” images, from a website, your camera or other people’s “Pins”.
Visuals are so much easier, for me anyway, to understand and navigate than a drop down menu of text.
Say you want to paint a regiment of High Elves and you have found several webpages of inspirational ideas. You can grab all these images and pin them together on a board. No more clicking between websites each painting session. They’re all there, in one place. Flicking between different boards is a doddle.
What’s not to like?
Now get out there and pin!
I agree, its a good visual site. But this week I found this one http://pinsofwar.net/, its a wargaming site only, very good.
I think I will be raiding that, but I’m going to stick with Pinterest as I have a load of unused accounts; Flikr, Tumblr and three websites and don’t want to get another account.
