Pinterest. Not long ago it wasn't even a term. Now it's huge. Pinterest has made a massive impact on the blogging world. I thought it would be fun to have a little discussion about it with all of you. What's your take on Pinterest?
I'll get the conversation started. Here are my immediate thoughts.
1) Traffic. Obviously traffic is good for everyone with a blog or web site. People are finding your blog when they might never have before. That rocks.
2) Giving the smaller blogs a good launch pad. When I first started blogging I looked at those big blogs and wondered how I'd ever be seen. I think Pinterest gives you a shot you might never have had. A really great project can get spread like wildfire.
3) It's just plain fun. Who doesn't love looking over their pretty little pin board or sifting through gorgeous images of clothing, beaches, or adorable baby animals?
4) A plethora of ideas. It's so awesome to be able to look for inspiration there. It's like someone sifted out most of the ugly, weird stuff you'd find doing a search on google because everything on Pinterest has been pinned because someone really liked it. It makes for a pretty amazing search engine.
