Pinterest: Paradise or Hell?

During my sabbatical, I discovered many new things on the internet to occupy my time. Things which didn't take much of a commitment, things that did require gifting, helping or acquiring elements in order to conquer a challenge and things which required little or no social interaction so I could continue to perfect my life as a hermit. One of those things led me to electronic hoarding. Yes, I discovered the wonderful world of Pinterest and, now, I am a pinaholic! 

What a magical place. It's quite beautiful there and very peaceful. Pinterest takes you to faraway lands where you can experience their colorful cultures and breathtaking landscapes. I have many many homes which are perfectly decorated and full of art by the masters. Then there is the garage which holds the most expensive cars, the fastest motorcycles and every kind of boat imaginable. Not to mention my closet rivals no one, every piece is custom selected for me. Yes, life is fabulous in the land of Pinterest.

To be honest, it's not really all sunshine, rose gardens and gingham curtains. Like the recipes that will never see the light of my kitchen and DIY and craft projects that will never get past a materials list. There have been many of these recipes and projects attempted by other pinners which have ended in a big fat FAIL. Here's a sample of those who have ventured where I dare not go....Pinterest Hell!

To see more of these failed attempts go to Craft Fail!

Since returning to blogging, I have created a Pinterest Board called Blog About to promote my blog as well as others.  Please leave a link to your latest post in the comments today and I will pin it for my 6200+ followers to see and hopefully they will stop by for a visit.

By the way, to take a look at my Pinterest account or to follow me, just click the red P on the left sidebar. You, too, could become addicted!


  1. Hee Hee. I'm gonna go directly to Craft Fail.

    I'm on Pinterest but I don't pin much. I'm convinced it's some kind of possessed time machine that sucks time away from you.

  2. Since Google+ ate all of my emails when people commented on my blog I now just post URL/name. Yes ma'am all kinds of things have changed since you been away from blogging for a bit. I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.

  3. I'm too old for another clocksucker. Already I'm being sent discount coupons for cremation services. Love the craft fails though. That is so me. I can throw a few words on a page decently enough, but that's about it for me in the artistic department. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll, but could you please put the "y" in my name because I get obsessed with petty shit like that: injaynesworld :)

  4. I've got a Pinterest account - filled with recipes I will never make because I always forget to look there for them and yeah and a board, or whatever they are called, with color palettes - why I don't really know. But I do NOT do crafts. I don't know why people make these incredibly useless things - and I never browse other people's boards - Pinterest is not a time sucker for me because I never go there!

  5. Wow, MeMe that LEGO cake is…well it's… what I mean to say is… Hell, it is what it is. Maybe practice makes perfect.

    1. I love Legos. I love cake. I only like lamp.


Thanks for stopping by The Screaming Me-Me!!!
