164 repins

There is endless entertainment, and time-wasting, to be had over on Pinterest.

It really is a "gunna" (going to do this one day) forum in so many ways (I'm not exempt from it with my boards) and the weirdest ( to me, I'm being judgey) is the people who pin pictures of their fantasy future bodies, fantasy weddings and fantasy baby nurseries for a fantasy baby. If you like something someone else has pinned you can repin it on your own board. This Peter Frampton album cover form 1976 I pinned on a board called "70s" has had 164 repins . Just shows there are a LOT of nostalgic old Gen-X-ers pinning away over there!

  1. Hmm, not sure here. I think fantasy/hoped for weddings, nurseries and babies, and bodies should be private. In a journal perhaps. My personal slant: I could not pin such things. I'm resisting pinterest because I know it would suck up so much more of my spare time. Endless inspiring pictures and no art work done.

  3. After a week I'm finding Pinterest weird, pretty, shallow and strangely addictive. Wonder whether I could be doing things instead of pinning them. Somehow pinning induces a kind of guilt that I don't get with other internet activities. Yep.

    I'd have never have thought Peter Frampton would elicit so much interest but there you go, shows what I know!

    1. Me too. I'm using it partly for nostalgic/scrapbooky boards, partly for collecting ideas of DIY stuff. I'm endeavouring to DO as well as PIN. But am following one feminist pinner katesome, who pins wonderful stuff, and want to seek out more like her.

  4. Yes I'm following katesome too. I found her from you after going through everyone's lists and randomly looking for others to follow. Maybe when I stop doing that it will settle down - it has only been a week!
