Your Not on Pinterest? What's Wrong With You?

Did You Know that Pinterest is a visual pinboard? You can get great ideas from Pinterest? Ideas can range from art, gardening, hair, or your own diy (do-it-yourself) projects. You can even buy products directly on Pinterest with the free Pinterest "BUY" app.

Possibly you have a few ideas for a party coming up in the future or even for a special holiday. You can find them and pin them to your special board on Pinterest. If it is for a susrprise party why not pin it to a secret board that is for your eyes or your teams eyes only?

Buyable Pins

When you have the app which is available on Android and iOS, and iPads you can purchase your item right there on Pinterest without even leaving the Pinterest site. That is so cool. Just look for the blue buy it button. This is a free app that is available at the App Store or at Google play. Whoever would have thought that you could shop directly from your cellphone or iPad? Also, if you have collected and saved pins for gifts this app will send you a notification when the product goes on sale and you can buy it right then.

Pinterest Browser Button

If you do not have it, be sure to get it so when you see and idea on the web, you can be sure to save it on Pinterest. For example if you see a new place that you might want to vacation at, you can just pin it. Those of you that love to cook might want to pin a recipe to Pinterest and try the recipe at a later date. There are endless things that can be done with Pinterest.

How To

Once you have joined Pinterest, just click on the + button down in the right hand corner of the page to get your Pinterest browser button, which will sit in your toolbar on your page. Just click on it when you see and image or article that you want to pin. This pin is great for readers that want to pin articles and read them at a later time.


You can also see what ideas others may have around the world. For example some of the top searches in France may include easy recipes, while in Germany you may see crafting with kids. It is always good to know what others are doing in other countries besides your own.

Picked for You Pins

Also, Pinterest will show you boards that they think you might be interested in based on your interests and past pins. Now if you are not on Pinterest, possibly you might want to try it. It is FREE. When I first started I did not have a clue as to what I was doing, but you learn as you travel on your journey.
