Why I Love Pinterest
Imagine a search engine like Google but for the things you like only and that you can upload an image straight to it and have hundreds of similar ones all while saving them and staying organized? Pinterest. It’s one of my favorite Social Media apps and I swear this is not a sponsored post. I’ve been using this app (privately) for the longest time ever and recently decided to create a public account to share with you all. There are endless reasons why this is seriously one of the best apps ever-- inspiration, DIY’s, being organized, finding new things and even shopping.
I’ve had a lot of time on my hands due to social distancing, so a few days ago I decided to make my profile public and created a lot of boards. Not only did this give me an endless amount of new inspiration, this really encouraged me to stay organized too. Right before doing this my camera roll on my iPhone had over 30,000 images and I’ve been really procrastinating cleaning it up. After creating all of those public boards as well as some of my secret ones (another cool part about the app is that you can have secret boards for your eyes only,) this allowed me to store everything in one place so that I can come back and look at it whenever I needed to. I used to just screenshot everything and leave them in my camera roll and oftentimes I would forget about them.
Some of you may have already been doing this, but me being the most unorganized person ever (which I am changing, I swear) this has really opened a whole new door for me and I feel extremely put together now. I have boards for almost everything- nails, coffee drinks, breakfast, style inspiration, 90s inspired, magazine covers, you name it-I’ll create it. I also decided to do that to my camera roll as well as my iPhone apps and I actually feel like my whole life is put together now. I’ve been dedicating around 30 minutes a day to pinning and I always tend to find it hard to stop. I feel much more motivated to create and feel inspired right after I finish.
So, if you aren’t using Pinterest yet I strongly recommend it and if you are on it maybe try to create some boards you like and organize your images as well. Let me know some boards you’d like me to create and share your account in the comments below too!
