Andromeda Eve joins Pinterest – and kinda likes it

Thanks to an old high school friend, I got an invite to Pinterest.

Previously, I had not bothered with the site because it didn’t make sense to me. Screen capture a bunch of pictures and “pin” them into a online folder? Hmmm…

I became more interested in Pinterest when I was on the Examiner message boards and people were talking about how useful the site was as a social medium. So, like a good little Social Media denizen, I set up a profile and created six new Pinterest boards in subjects that I think I can keep updated and meaningful.

My current boards are:

  • Princess Diana (of course)
  • Big Bang Theory
  • Famous Author Interviews (to throw my Examiner columns into)
  • Books Worth Reading (I can put Dark Continents books and other favorites here)
  • Haunting Women
  • Amazing Libraries

I had a good time filling the boards with pictures, and even found myself saying “ooh” and “ahh” looking at other people’s boards. There are some stunning photographers out there, capturing images of clothes that are more like artwork then functional coverings for stick-thin models, powerful close-ups of flowers and insects, and pictures of place on earth that are so breath taking, they cannot possibly be real.

Find me on Pinterest at, but just remember that like all things that I do, it is a work in progress.
