Well I keep seeing links to this Pinterest website, I finally decided to see what the heck it was...Yea, I'll probably get into it and use it...why not?   So I was reading through all the F.A.Q.'s and saw a link that said, "Pinterest Etiquette".  I read it just for kicks and here's rule number 3:

Avoid Self Promotion

Pinterest is designed to curate and share things you love. If there is a photo or project you’re proud of, pin away! However, try not to use Pinterest purely as a tool for self-promotion.

Really?'s pretty obvious that's what Pinterest is all about, you showing other people what YOU like. Obviously there are those that are going to post there online businesses all over that place, in fact I've seen it.  I found this rule VERY funny and ironic.   Now I'm seeing in my trends to the right here as I type Pinterest blog of which is "Feed your creativity and Cultivate your brain" Whoops, that should be "bran" as it's spelled wrong on the other blog title.  I guess their "bran" hasn't been cultivated enough yet.  Idk it's looks like one big online bookmark source that other people can see to me.  I guess it might be a good place for me to put all those recipes that I'll never make but look delicious. Maybe I can learn how to cook my "bran".


  1. Saw your blog on People I want to Punch in the Throat and thought I'd stop by. I'm a dude and started doing Pinterest. Why? For self promotion obviously. Thanks for the post.

    1. Thanks! I love your blog too, what a great journey. I'll add you to my links list :D

  2. I also found you on PIWTPITT. You hit the nail right on the head with this one. And as for the old PC, ugh, mine is only 2 years old and it is slow compared to what is out there. I think computer companies put a chip in that causes it to slow down after a certain amount of time to make us buy new ones. I look forward to reading more but I too will self promote, lol.
