I’ll admit it, as the Pinterest craze took off, I felt a little superior for not buying into it. I started a couple of boards and thought–This is stupid, why am I pinning all of these things I can’t afford, won’t make, and can’t make for a house I don’t have? [Insert turned-up nose here.]
I didn’t bring any recipe books to Chicago, and AllRecipes was unreliable, so I crept onto my mom and sister’s Pinterests hoping to find some recipes I would like from some people who have genetically similar tastebuds.
It was a downhill slope from there, because I have realized that it is WAY fun and actually useful. However since I have gotten aboard the Pinterest train, I have vowed to myself several things:
1. No exclamation points in my captions.
2. Only pin things that I can actually do/make/eat/accomplish/afford unless it involves travel, in which case, those can be long term goals. (Bring on Senegal!)
3. Keep Score–if Pinterest Fails, alert the public.
