Electronic Hoarders Anonymous

Oh, my gosh for reals…I can’t…stop…PINNING! I have discovered the most fantastic time waster ever, Pinterest. Who knew I would be so in love with an electronic pin-cushion. Well, except for those inspirational quotes with some 100 pound, blonde bombshell exercising her way to perfection.  You won’t see any of those on my boards.

My name is Jeny, and I’m addicted to Pinterest. I’m now 5 minutes sober and headed for a relapse. In fact, I got an iPhone JUST because Apple has the only Pinterest App. Now I can pin in the car on the drive to work. Yay! That’s safe. It doesn’t help that part of my job now entails managing the social media for my company (including…you got it, Pinterest), it’s far too easy to get sucked in sorting through pins and thinking, “Hell, I could do that!”.

Pinterest Pin Whore

Here are some of the examples of stupid things I’ve wasted my life pinning so far:

My Slumber Party Board – An entire board dedicated to PAJAMAS…yes, PAJAMAS. I must really love PAJAMAS.

  1. I have this board called “Future Projects.” Yeah, right. I’m too busy pinning new ideas to have any time to do theones I’ve already pinned. (Or there are days like today – I actually do one and it backfires. Sigh.)

  2. That baby monkey is Just Too Sweet! I totally get you on the pinning thing. I’ve made story boards for my two books, I search around for amazing costume ideas, food, you name it. I don’t have a board for pajamas ~ yet. Anything is possible and yes, I am a pin whore. Proud of it! By the way, I popped over to follow your boards before leaving a comment. That’s how much I love Pinterest.

  3. You’re right about that. I’m not a social media freak but still I feel as if pinning whole day long. It’s all about the user-interface of Pinterest, no wonder about that. But I managed to stop using that like a crazy. :P

  4. Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…
