Christina Atkins’ Pinterest Site — 6 Comments

  1. What? Christina Atkins here! What a surprise to find upon googling myself for the first time in years.

    I absolutely love your work here. The internet is a small world, eh? One of my friends took a year off to go coast to coast and blog about it, and when I searched for earthships, some of the first photos that popped up were hers.

    I love Pinterest because it helps me keep my hard drive free of a million images, I can find the original links (plus they provide credit where credit is due) and my husband prefers I Pinterest over cat videos. (I can’t claim that I never watch them though.)

  2. I must be missing something. Why is pinterest different from photo blogs like you find on tumblr, or really any blog host? I mean, I’m not against it or anything I just don’t get why it’s special. I’d appreciate being enlightened… :)

    • It’s the interactive properties that seem most appealing. Luke said it best — “It’s the creativity and personalization of etsy, with a picasa like interface, facebook like sharing, but all DIY kind of stuff.”

  3. Excellent! Glad my comment prompted you to explore pinterest further. My wife has made candles out of tangerines, made different jams, had decoration ideas and other things coming from shared ideas. It’s the creativity and personalization of etsy, with a picasa like interface, facebook like sharing, but all DIY kind of stuff. Pretty cool if you ask me. Be careful though,you can spend hours there.
    For my wife, it’s either pinterest or cat videos. Guess which one I prefer she’s on.

  4. My wife is addicted to pinterest ever since she found it. I think she’s on it more than facebook now, which is a pretty big deal, haha. She’s had the best, most creative ideas come from there.

    • I think it’s a really interesting idea. It’s different than the standard Picasa type photo album. I may very well start pulling together my favorite pics next time I have a chunk of spare time.

      Update: Luke, thanks for the tip. I added an update to the blog post encouraging readers to check out the Home category at Pinterest. Awesome.
