Renewed Interest in Pinterest


Eric Stoller Pinterest

When Pinterest first became popular, I wasn’t very interested. It wasn’t that interesting to me. Recently, I’ve been heading over to Pinterest on a regular basis. Curating interesting things on the web, sharing with friends, and finding wonderful pins/boards from within my network and beyond.

My boards are a mix of my interests: music, art, thoughts, ink, joy, and a list that helps me remember all of the things. Pinterest is about our personal aesthetic. Sure, it’s dominated by DIY, fashion, recipes, fitness tips, and quotes, but that’s the cool thing about it. I totally dig learning more about what my friends think is fashionable or a new way to fix something. The randomness of curation due to a diverse network makes for a great space for learning, sharing, and just letting my mind wander.
