More about Pinterest

If you’re not on Pinterest, you’re probably a man.

—Alli Worthington

If you’re not familiar with Pinterest, it’s a social network where people (mostly women) share ideas, art, and other content through images arranged on various “boards.”

These boards are arranged however you like, but then categorized under a handful of major categories, including photography, food, and so on.

I’ve started using Pinterest to curate memorable quotes for my writing and speaking. It’s also great for finding recipes, cool photos, and other creative work. If you’re not on it (and want to be), leave your email in the comments below, and I’ll send you an invite. It’s fun.
