So the new big thing is pinterst. And the question is to participate or not. I have done and actually still am on Myspace but don't check it ever. I fought Facebook but eventually gave in when a dear friend who doesn't do these types of things actually got on. I do enjoy that and talking with so many friends on an easy format. I have opted out of Twitter. and am sticking to it. I don't even visit to keep out any temptation. Obviously I joined in in blogging. It for me is a good journal. Now the thing is Pinterist. From what I can figure out it is a place to store and share various web pages with ideas for anything and everything. Sounds like a good idea. Would allow me to have fewer bookmarks on my computer. But everyone I see on it seems to be addicted and even admit to it. Do I join this to find more fun ideas and save space on my computer but chance more wasted time spent on my computer? I am enjoying all the recipes my friends keep sending me that they find on pinterest.
So I got on yesterday to take a look. Figured I should sign up and really see what's going on. The first annoying thing is you have to wait for an invite. Hmmm don't really like taking my time to check it out to have wait to be asked to join. While finding this out I saw an interesting picture of headphones that looked like a friendship bracelet.
So I did look a little more into that and have discovered the new thing is to thread wrap headphones to help keep them from tangling. It is to be time consuming but something I will try. I thought well that should only cost me about $1.20 for the amount of embroidery floss it says I need. So after my PT appointment yesterday I stopped in Hobby Lobby to pick some up. Apparently I have been out of the friendship making a lot long that I thought. When I was doing it you could get 5 for $1. Now they are over $1.05 each!!! So doing a little shipping for cheaper prices but still very sad because I will no matter what spend more than I once did. At such a huge price increase.
Oh well off to shop for supplies for my first pinterest project and to ponder if I want to "accept my invite" or continue to hunt my old way.
