Seriously, I'm in love with this website 

 

If you pin share yours! And if you don't know what it is, it's basically a website for storing all the inspiration you see on the web.

I have an invite to join sitting in my in-box. I just tried to sign up last week. I found out I have to have Facebook though. Since I don't have a Facebook account, I kinda stalled out on the whole thing. 
 

I really, really want Pinterest so I can keep track of cool stuff. I was inspired to join after I lost track of some interior design photos I wanted to show Dh and a few recipes. Bookmarks are fine, but not really all that manageable for specifics. So I guess I'm signing up for Facebook too, lol.

I don't even remember who invited me? I have this total love/hate relationship with addicting internet stuff I find -- I'm on the website looking at things to do with the kids until like 11 pm (old lady) and it drives me insane BUT can't stop/won't stop.

I love pinterest.  Visual bookmarking is awesome.

 

(I don't think you actually have to have Facebook - just an email, though I guess I could be wrong. . .)

Nope. You have to use Facebook or Twitter. Supposedly, it "make[s] it easier to find people you know, and to reduce spam", according to the "Why Link Accounts" pop-up on their sign-up invitation.

 

I am a little unhappy about it, since I don't have either and didn't really want them. Oh, well.

Ditto. So I'm passing on Pinterest for now. Too bad.

Hmmm. . I've been using it totally unlinked to Facebook.  But I do have a Facebook account so maybe I did need it signing up.

Oh, clarification - When you get the invitation to register, you need to connect through FB or Twitter. After that, I'm sure you can just log in directly to your Pinterest account. The invitation also says that you can de-link your FB account after you register. So, yeah, it's only for this one-time registration step, which is why I think it's a pain. Why should I have to set up Facebook, just to get into Pinterest? Sigh - I do love the concept, though, and I see it's value. I'm tired of losing track of cool stuff I find on the internet and then wasting time trying to find it again. I really want access, so I'm sure I'll cave in and get FB. 

 

Possibly, too, the FB/Twitter step for signing up to Pinterest is something new. Maybe earlier registrants didn't need to go this route.

i am a paranoid freak and don't like to link my stuff and don't want to reveal my true identity to anybody.  i am my real name on fb (which is why i don't link here) but i am NOT a twitter user so what i did was set up a basically null twitter account and signed up through there.

i fell through the rabbit hole, though, pinterest is pretty obsessing and a pretty fantastic time suck, if you are looking for such a thing. 

 


Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

I found out about pinterest yesterday but I am still to scared to sign up. FB and MDC already take up more time than I care to admit.redface.gif  

 

I think I could be on there for hours.

 

What's with the invitation thing? Does someone have to invite you?

Okay, I had never heard of Pinterest before this thread, and now I'm completely hooked -- I love it! My house is totally Pinterest-ed out right now -- I've done this, this, this, and this for fall/Halloween decorating. Thanks for sharing the site with us! love.gif

Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm a Pinterest addict. ;-)

 

Can we turn this into a 12-step program? LMAO - I'm so hooked on that site. Sleep when the baby sleeps? Ha! Pinterest while the baby sleeps!

I'm totally in love with Pinterest. I even got dh to join, lol.  

 

FWIW, I had to register with my FB account, but once in, I went to my account and "disconnected" them and now I just log in with my user name and password.


I love homemade: cute skirts, apricot jam, and family!

Ha, I read a sign on there once that said something like, "Dear Pinterest, thank you for making me feel as though I've been creative when really I've just spent 3 hours online." lol.gif
