It seems like the hot new thing out there is Pinterest. Every time I am trolling around Facebook somebody else is posting about it. I even saw it on the news last week. It made me think, "What the hell is this thing and why am I not doing it?" I asked a couple of girls at work about it and they raved about it. So of course that means I had to check it out.
So off I go to the website. I searched for some of my friends and was actually shocked by just how many of them are on there. I was hoping to find a new mecca of awesomeness. What I found was recipes, lots and lots of recipes. Isn't that what www.allrecipes.com is for? Is this online corkboard going to replace my favorite website?
I figured I would give it a try though, all these people can't be wrong. I tried to figure out how to sign up and realized that you had to ask for an invite, and then you are put on a waiting list. What the hell is this thing, the CIA? Ok seriously, why the exclusivity? Don't you people want as many members as possible? Are you not an attention whore like me who likes to check how many people are hitting up your site on a daily basis? Are you looking for a specific type of person? Before I get an invite do you do a background check? If I don't have enough Facebook friends do I get rejected?
Well, of course I signed up for the invite. I wanted to see what their reasoning for rejecting me would be. Surprise, surprise, the next day I was accepted. I was actually giddy. They like me, they really like me. I passed their test. Now what? That was two days ago and the email is still sitting there. I just can't get the motivation click on the link. Do I really want to look at more recipes for things I don't have time to make or that are way too many Weight Watcher points? Is there more I can find? I want a good book list, but then again that is why I use www.Goodreads.com. So help, should I click that link or pretend I never got it?
Oh and by the way, since there is no exclusivity on my blog, no invite necessary to become part of my world, look up and to the right, see that Facebook link, yes, click it. I am an attention whore and not afraid to admit it.
