Guess who just got a Pinterest? THIS GIRL! Though, it’s probably something I shouldn’t be so happy about. That’s like bragging to my friends that I’ve recently become addicted to meth. WOOHOO!
Slightly-politically-incorrect similes aside, I had three great reasons to get a Pinterest. Let me break it down for you numbered list style:
- One of the reasons I love being a wedding photographer is because I love weddings. One of my friends, wedding-photographer-extraordinaire Bethany Cox, recently got a Pinterest to help share wedding planning ideas with her brides. I see lots of great wedding DIYs and designs all the time, so what better way to share them with my clients than through a Pinterest?? (Or maybe I’m making excuses for my unhealthy addiction to pinning things on my wedding board. Bah.) Well, since I don’t have a wedding of my own to plan, maybe something I’ve pinned will help inspire my clients in their planning!
- By maintaining a Pinterest and establishing what and who I like, I get more great suggestions akin to my tastes on my feed. It’s like having a friend with really, really good taste in Internet. Wait, did I just call my Pinterest my friend…? DON’T JUDGE ME OKAY
- I see a lot of awesome crap on the internet ALL THE TIME and I have no place to organize it. UNTIL NOW.
