I am currently defending the universe from unsavory pins, while simultaneously running a household and trying to finish up my victory lap for my undergrad in Business Management. I am 22 years old and I have been using Pinterest since I was 17. If you’re anything like me, then you have over 5,000 pins on Pinterest, and you maybe have tried… 2.
I remember the days when you used to have to be invited–yes invited– to use Pinterest. At that time it was an elite group of middle aged housewives who blogged about their babies and passed along wisdom from their mothers on all kinds of things from good housekeeping to family recipes and small town crafts. Now it’s a conglomerate of GREAT ideas mixed with some not-so-great ones and some downright awful ones. I am sure you are familiar with the Pinterest fail. This site, however, is different.
You see, I take out the guesswork for you. No more will you spend hours and hours pinning and searching only to be disappointed when those amazing Finding Nemo cupcakes turn out too look more like “It” than a clown fish. I try them out, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Not only do I try out the pins I find, but I try out yours as well. I don’t have anything to lose, really. The dignity went the way of the dogs as soon as I tried that fateful “honey, cinnamon and egg yolk” hair mask and its not planning on making an appearance any time soon.
So be on the lookout for both fails and wins as we go and try to navigate the Pinterest jungle. I do hope you find me a useful guide.
