I mentioned a while back my new fondness for Pinterest. Are you on there yet? If not, do you want an invitation? I'd be happy to hook you up. Just leave me a comment.
For those new to Pinterest, it is a great place to "pin" photos and ideas that you find on blogs, web sites, etc. all around the web. You can sort your pins by category on boards. I've found it to be a great way to expose myself to more content from awesome blogs than I'd ever have enough time to follow all by myself.
But I'd really like to introduce my latest board: And the nominees are. . .
I created this board with the hopes of getting you a little more involved with things around here. I'm specifically looking for help scouring the web looking for two things:
1. New recipes to try
2. Holiday/seasonal crafts & activities
Food and holiday photos are the two categories where there is an open need on the stock photo site where I submit my work. There are gazillions of blogs out there with even more gazillions of ideas. I'm not looking to steal anybody's stuff or to copy and replicate their photos, I'm just looking for inspiration. I want to take a little of this, a little of that, and cobble it together to make a whole new thing.
If you're interested in helping me scour the internets for ideas, I'd love to add you as a contributor to my new board. You can post as much or as little over there as you have time for. I'll peruse the board when I am looking to set up a new photo shoot. The ideas you share do not have to have gorgeous photos, just put a comment on your pin so I know what it is that you found interesting about the content.
It is one of those things that is trickier to explain than to just show. So if you're interested, just look over on Pinterest and you'll start getting the idea! I'd love to see what you have to share!
