For a long time, I resisted joining Pinterest. I can't keep up with the social media sites I’ve already joined and I’m perpetually behind on blog reading, so creating another social media account didn’t make sense. But, of course, in the end the curiosity got the best of me and I found myself logging in.
I got sucked in pretty quickly. I’ve found Pinterest is pretty great for finding recipes and planning out my weekly menu. (I “like” the recipes I plan to cook that week, and "unlike” them after I’ve made them.) I turned to Pinterest when I decided I wanted to change my hair, and it was easy to show my hairdresser the cuts I liked. (Thank you Pinterest iPhone app!) I have a whole board dedicated to our kitchen renovation. I’m pinning cleaning tips and fashion stuff and decorating ideas and things I want to bake. How did I ever manage without Pinterest?
About the only thing I don’t use Pinterest for is diabetes. So I wonder if I’m missing out? To those of you who are dedicated Pinners, I’d love to know if you use Pinterest for diabetes stuff. Are there some great d-related boards I should be following? Or is Pinterest not really helpful diabetes-wise?
