I'll admit it. I like things in chronological order. I would rather have a deluge of everything in chronological order than a curated gathering of items I want to read out of order.
I'm okay with content wading. That's sort of the beauty of the Internet. You end up stumbling upon gems of information you didn't even know you wanted to see in the first place.
(Facebook, Twitter, Instagram... are you listening?)
Blogging can be such a fickle mistress. One day you are sailing along on cloud nine, your page views are up and you are beating off new subscribers with a stick. And then something happens and your whole blogging world falls apart. Your page views plummet, and it feels like you will never get traction again.
And as you stand in the rubble, looking around, you find yourself asking, "What the hell happened, and how did I end up here?" Something changed and everything you thought you knew now seems wrong.
For me, that something was Pinterest.
Whether you are hooked on Pinterest, or just use it as a 'social media tool,' randomly pinning whenever you need to plan a new party or looking for some Valentine's Day ideas, you are a pinner.
We are all looking for easier, smarter tools to get more out of the site! I want to introduce you to the following awesome tools that will make your life with Pinterest better.
How often do you look at someone else's social media feed and feel the pressure that you're not living up to some impossibly unrealistic standard? Have you fallen into the trap of comparing yourself to the seemingly fabulous lives others are portraying on social media and feel that you're somehow falling short? It happens to me all the time, and it's not a good feeling. Frankly, it sucks and during the holiday time of year, it's even worse. I'm not some crafty DIYer or chef or baker or candlestick maker.
Information on the Internet moves so quickly that it's easy for your list of links to share and posts to read to look like the bottom of your purse: a place that your hand scrapes and quickly retracts from as it feels the mess.
