According to the website:
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.Here's a screenshot of my boards.
I have boards for things like my books, coloring pages and activity sheets for the kids, humor, recipes, decorating ideas, gadgets. You get the idea. The possibilities are endless. I've seen all kinds of boards and it's fun to see the personality of the persons 'pinning' reflected in their boards. You can 'follow' people if you find their boards interesting and when you open the home page, you'll see all the new pins of your favorite people. If you see a pin you especially like, then you can 'repin' it to one of your own boards.
Now, I've got to back to pinning!
