Pinterest is my favorite social media platform, by far! I love creating inspiration boards full of visual bookmarks where I define the description. Pinterest makes my life easier.

Sure, I got sucked into hours and hours of creation when I first joined, but now I spend as much or as little time on Pinterest as I want each day.

One of the aspects of Pinterest that I truly appreciate is that I can take pretty much any content on the internet and add it to a board so that I may refer to that content again. These visual bookmarks are more appealing to me than actually having a bookmark list that I have to scroll down and try to remember what favicon I'm really searching for. Good pins have a nice tall image, easy to spot! And then as the pinner, I can alter the descriptive text to whatever helps me.

Boards are easy to add and delete. Pinterest has added a Move Pins option as well. This feature made it easy for me to grab all of my geeky t-shirt pins from my "Geeking Out" board and place them on their own board called "Geek T-shirts to Love."

It would be nice if boards could be nested, but until that happens, at least moving pins in batches is convenient.

Secret boards are available too. Don't want the world to see your bucket list? Make it a secret board.

You can invite other pinners to collaborate with you on boards. My sister and I share a few boards so that together we can gather ideas for parties and gifts. But larger group boards are cool too since they expose you to even more pinners with quality content. Secret boards can be collaborative as well.

If someone is following you, then you can send that person pins, a board, or even another pinner's account information with a message stating why you think this content is useful. I love it when my friends send me pins that I may not have seen on my own!

And finally...I don't block pinners often, but if I see someone with content I perceive as spammy or offensive, then I do block them. I don't see the need to comment negatively on someone else's pin. And since Pinterest offers me the option of blocking pinners who I don't care to interact with, I'll take them up on that very kind solution.

I am truly grateful that my sister introduced me to Pinterest several years ago. I had been lugging around inspiration binders that kept expanding over the years. It was such a chore trying to keep all of my various clippings organized. With Pinterest I now have versatile inspiration boards that I love and refer back to often!

How do you make good use of Pinterest?
