Warning: Organizing Your Interests on Pinterest Could Be Harmful to Your Productivity!

If you haven't gotten hooked on Pinterest yet, watch out! It's a wonderful site where you can organize your various interests on the web in one place. No longer do you need to keep a list of places you want to remember. Or create massive folders with ideas you want to use.

You can create various boards (like bulletin boards), and pin different web pages on each one. For example, some of my boards include:

Recipes I Want to Try
Books Worth Reading
For the Home

When you find a page on the web you like, click on your bookmarks icon, and there should be included in your list "Pin it." Just click it and it will bring up pictures that are included on that page. Click the one you want on your board.

Next you will choose a category for that pin or create a new one. When you save your pin, it goes on your board. You can move pins from board to board, and you can rearrange the pins on each board. 

When you want to go back to a page listed on your board, simply click the picture and it will take you back to the original page you wanted to save.

You can peruse the boards of other people, repin their pins, and more. And you can also add comments to your pin.  

Just be careful - it can be addictive!
