I had ignored it for a while. Not out of principle or anything, but just because I didn’t need yet another site taking up my time.
Then I remembered Berrak telling me that it was a good place to gather all your wedding ideas and share them with your bridesmaids. And I thought, okay, that sounds reasonable. And maybe, while I’m at it, I could use it to show BNF what I want on the registry, or for the apartment, etc.
I think you can see where this is going.
I signed up. Before I’d even pinned anything to my boards (look at me! it’s like I know what I’m talking about!) I had followers, thanks to Facebook. And that? That stressed me out.
What if my lack of activity made me a loser? What if I pinned something that everyone else thought was stupid? What if, what if?
Then I took a deep breath and reminded myself that I’m an adult. Usually.
And while that reminder may stop Pinterest from being a source of stress, it’s still a complete time suck.
I spent the better part of this morning poring over wedding websites and pinning left and right. Yesterday, I was all over Williams Sonoma. I’m sure later today it’ll be something else.
Hopefully, at some point, this will become productive. For now, though…
…well, let’s just say this post would have been up a while ago, except that I got distracted by someone else’s pins.
So much for productivity.
