In case you have been living under a rock for the last 5 years, then you know about the awesome amazingness that is Pinterest.
But in case you don't, let me fill you in.
Pinterest is a digital "pinboard" for the internet where users can create pinboards of thier favorite online content. For example, we at Finding Cupid created a board called "Let's Get Krafty" The board is a collection images from the internet of modern DIY projects that we love. Other users can scan through the images for inspiration and can even click on a link to the original website so they can learn more about the project.
Most people will tell you that this is awesome because it truly streamlines the way you look for inspiration. But this is also awesome because it replaces the task of going through magazines and newspapers and tearing things out.
Pinterest has completey revolutionized the way people get married these days. A bride or groom can easily show a wedding planner exactly what they are imagining for thier big day.
This digital corkboard has also help many other people in different professions find and collect inspiration. People like fashion bloggers, teachers, crafters, and chefs. The posibilities are endless!
