Two Thoughts for Tuesday

First off this Tuesday, I wanted to share that I recently started using a website called Pinterest.  Before I could even gain access to the site, I saw that a lot of my friends were already "pinning" pictures on that site and sharing them on Facebook.  It looked pretty cool to me - the idea of having an online bulletin board for pictures (and videos) wherein you can save things and/or share things.

Unlike most photo storage websites, however, Pinterest easily allows you to organize the "pins" you upload.  If you're concerned about privacy, however, then Pinterest is not for you.  Everything you "pin" to a board is public. Then again, if you truly want to keep something private, then don't post them to the Internet in the first place!

My second thought to share is about my two most popular boards on Pinterest.  Actually, "popular" is a misnomer.  They're not really popular as in having a lot of fans or followers.  They're just the ones I pin the most to and receive the most attention from other members.

The first one is my Natural Health board.  I find a lot of "educational" pictures related to health and nutrition in the course of my part-time work at a Health and Wellness company.  Since it's part of my personal quest in life to be able to help others enjoy healthy long lives, I thought I'd save the most interesting ones and share them on that board.  In addition, I also share some of these finds on another blog that I contribute to on Blogger.

I am also an avid reader, in case you haven't been following LiggyzDreamz™.  I post my book reviews here.  Like Twilight and Hunger Games, I have also become a huge fan of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James.  I know I'm  not alone in that fanaticism.  I've been finding sooooo many blogs and photos online from other fans, especially from those who are joining in this worldwide guessing game on who might play the characters in an upcoming planned movie adaptation.

All in all, Pinterest has just been a fun place to "pin" pictures that I want to share.  Even if you don't set up a Pinterest account for yourself, check it out to find some really cool ideas for things like home improvement projects, books to read, movies to see, or even find things for nostalgia.  Like I said, it's a public board.  So there's no need to log in or anything like that...just stop by and enjoy yourself!  But before you do that, click on the blinking button below and visit BlogDumps!  That's one cool site for bloggers like me to find other interesting blogs to read and to connect with other bloggers.

Thanks for explaining Pinterest to us. I have been over there a time or two but really haven't understood how it works or what the advantage of it is as opposed to putting material on FB. I was initually put off by the having to be invited to join. I am not sure that I have anything that needs to be pinned anyway but I do plan on going back over and looking around as you suggested.

I haven't checked Pinterest out personally but I have noticed a lot of people using it. It's a nifty idea, but I'm afraid I'd spend even more time online than I do now....

Hi my name is Trina and I'm a FB addict... LOL

I'm looking forward to read 50 Shades and Hunger Games they both look so very interesting and I can't wait to get on the boat and have the time to read again!

Hi Liggy,

I haven't had the chance to really scope out Pinterest but it looks really interesting.

I like your natural health board, that's a great thing to share lots of information about.

Clicks for you!

Hi, Liggy -

Do any men use Pinterest? I've never heard any guys talking about it. To put it another way do they have a "Single Malt Scotch" and "College Football" board? I'm mostly giving you a hard time but I'm also curious.

Pinterest can be pretty addicting. I used to pin a lot of stuff when I first got my account a few months ago, but I've kind of slowed down on it lately. It's been especially great for finding good recipes that people have shared. I've tried a few of the recipes, and they turned out quite good. I also love using to get ideas for home decorations. If anyone is interested in checking out my boards, you can find them at Thanks! :)

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my cousin were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a book from our local library but I think I learned better from this post. I’m very glad to see such great info being shared freely out there…
