I would like to talk about one of my favorite sites today: Pinterest.com.
You need an invite in order to become a member of this site, but most people will invite you. You can connect to pinterest from facebook or twitter and then pinterest will post your pins for you if you want them to. (I don’t usually like it when sites do this for me, but I’m okay with pinterest doing it.) Pinterest seems to largely have a women’s following, but men can join too. This article talks about the statistics for women and men and pinterest. I am studying to become an elementary school teacher and really love that there are so many pins and boards dedicated to education and educational tools.
There are also pins that send you to sites with awesome educational printouts as well!
My favorite category in pinterest is the animal category. Just looking at all the cute animals will brighten your day.
I also use Pinterest to advirtise the items in my etsy shop. That way more people will see them or be linked to my shop. If the item has been sold then they could just contact me and I could make them a similar item if they want.
