...i'm addicted

anyone who's discovered pinterest knows the feeling, and i'm sure "pinners anonymous" groups have popped up around the world. the website is addictive. everything from cat memes to crafts, inspiring photography to  home remedies, design to recipes, and everything in between is saved in little directories each user creates linking back to the original image somewhere out in the interwebs. it is a visual nexus of pop internet culture. the hub for viral content. and it has earned a reputation for giving people great ideas...which they share...but then they don't do anything with. the thought process often goes like this...

1 - see awesome hairstyle with instructions
2 - think "ooo...that looks awesome...and easy too!"
3 - repin picture
4 - forget how to create hairstyle so you never try it

the process is the same regardless of the content. well, i'm determined to actually try some of these awesome things i keep pinning and i'm going to keep track of it all. make a list of what works, what doesn't and share it all here (with pictures, of course)

happy pinning!
