Morning Meanderings.. Pinterest Interest and The Blog
Yes I am here, just a little late this morning. I have been up since 6 am, but I have been reading emails I was too tired to get to last night, chatting it up a bit this morning with bookish peeps on Twitter, and cautiously looking into Pinterest.
Why the caution?
Any one that reads Book Journey on a regular basis knows I have no trouble at all filling up my time. I love to read, to blog, my job, hanging with friends, rollerblading, biking, the gym, volunteering with teen and the homeless, movies, and really…. honestly…
I was afraid (and still am a little) that Pinterest would become a time suck I just could not afford unless I gave up sleeping, which as hard as I like to run…. I do look forward to hitting the pillow at night to re-energize.
Friends invited me to join it, talked about it, I hear it’s praises on the blogs, but for me…. Pinterest was off the table.
And then… (gah… I am really starting to not like those two words…)
Jay at Joy’s Book Blog had a Pinterest Challenge for Bloggiesta. Not one to back down from a challenge I checked it out. What Joy talks about is how to use your blog with Pinterest… in other words, I could connect books on Pinterest that would draw attention to Book Journey.
I do like talking about books…
I did not do the challenge – I did not have time. But I did ask Joy to hook me up with an invite and she did, and this morning… I registered. Anyhoo… that’s why I am really late this morning 😀
Oh yes, you can plan on seeing these pop up in a post as soon as I find a book to theme them… 😀
I am registered but currently there is nothing on my board. I need to figure out how to do it, does it link back to the blog, etc…. maybe this evening I can look more into that and probably in the next day or two I will put up a link on the sidebar. Until then… yeah.
So let the time suck begin. 😛 If you do not hear from me for a while check Pinterest, I may be pinned to a board. “Help! I’ve been pinned and I can not get free!”
My day today is blog post writing, group power, hopefully a bike ride, reading, cooking, and some sort of low-key plan for hubby and I tonight… like a rented movie.
