Pinterest, Here I Come!

I have finally become an official “Pin Head” and have joined Pinterest! Apparently, I am behind the ball since there are an estimated 12 million subscribers and 80% of those users are women! I was interested in how busy moms, like myself, use Pinterest, so I did a little research and discovered some interesting facts:
·         Top 3 reasons why moms use Pinterest:
·         It’s just fun (90%)
·         I like organizing my interests (67.8%)
·         I like looking at beautiful things (67%)
·         The average number of Pinterest boards for moms is 18.
·         “Food/recipes” was by far (91.4%) the category/subject moms pinned the most.
·         Others in the top 5 were “Crafts” (74.5%), “Home Décor" (55.5%) “How-To” (52.7%), and “Fashion” (39.5%).
·         Fewer than half of moms (42.3%) used Pinterest to plan events, with 78.7% of that number planning a child’s birthday party.
·         About two-thirds of moms (66.5%) both pinned when they came across something of interest and pro-actively searched for items to pin.  

Well, I have just started with Pinterest and I already have four boards and I’m just getting started! I’m in agreement with all three top reasons to use Pinterest; it’s fun, it makes organizing my many interests easy and the pictures are beautiful and engaging. I find I’m drawn more towards the fashion, home décor and crafts, other than food/recipes. Who knows? Maybe one day Pinterest will inspire me to cook!
In the meantime, check out my new Pinterest page at and tell me what you think!

From our family to yours –
