After receiving a a Pinterest invite I didn’t sign up straight away because to become a member you have to sign in with your Facebook or twitter account, which I have neither. I love blogging and social bookmarking sites, but social networking just isn’t my thing, so alas I figured I could use someone else’s Facebook account to sign up then unlink their profile so you can login via email.
Once I started pinning, I was hooked. Before the days of social bookmarking sites I’d just right click and save images onto my desktop, the problem with this is that you can not source where you got the image from and it tends to just disappear in a folder and never to be seen again. I actually use several bookmarking sites like Tumblr and Designspiration, but my taste in things from fashion to architecture varies greatly, and I like to keep these things in separate categories so my collection of images are more coherent.
If you would like to follow me elsewhere you can find me at:
Tumblr: This is where I post all my fashion inspiration – dark, avant garde, draping, and structural fashion.
Designspiration: Graphic design inspiration.
Pinterest: This is where my girly granny side comes out, I pin things from craft, lettering, stationery, home interiors, and food.
