pinterest addiction, pinterest explained

Many business owners are still unclear on what Pinterest is or what all the fuss is about it.

Well, I have a fun way to help clarify things for you.

It’s a humorous article about one woman’s “addiction” to Pinterest, how her obsession grew, and why she finally had to give it up “cold turkey”.

Check out this article called “My Affair with Pinterest — and How I Ended it for the Best” by Julie Tilsner and discover through this funny take on Pinterest what the hype is all about.

“You create an account and are immediately accosted by a tidal wave of images. Suddenly, you spy the cutest pair of red pumps. And then a living room painted a color that makes you gasp out loud. And that bedroom, with those windows! And apricot rice pudding popsicles, really?

“You invite your friends to ‘follow’ you, and are delighted when they all quickly respond by ‘re-pinning’ your first tentative pins. It’s like girl’s night out right here in front of your laptop! 

“When your husband comes home at 11, you’re still staring at the computer. You haven’t even refilled your wine glass.”
