has anyone other than Kelly, Deb, Shanon and I know a few others too lol, Joined?

OMG addictive as heck, here's the idea

you have your own boards, you look through the site or anywhere online and you can pin anything you like to your boards, ie:Fashion you can pin outfits, hairstyles you like, shoes. Food- you can pin recipes, things that look good. Kids crafts - Yes our one true love on this board lol, I've pinned tons of craft ideas, with full instructions.

Anyway, if you want to try it out, PM me your email addy and I"ll "invite" you (weird how you just can't join)

check it out for a sneak peek

I don't think you have to sign up through FB or twitter, there's an option too, bu I think you can just sign up with email and password too

FYI - When I asked for an invite, I found the e-mail in my Junk box. I'm sure Allie has taken care of you, but if anyone else needs an invite, just pm me.

Okay... I'm an idiot. I can't get it to work. Where does the pin link go? I moved it to my favourites like it said, but I can find it when I want to link a picture. Arrggghhh...........

I just go to add pin and then you can paste your link in there, I never add to my favorites

I PM'd you for an invite and got nothing...what are you trying to tell me, Allie? :mad:

NEVER MIND! I just casually thought I'd see if I have a PM...and you asked me for my email address (which I honestly thought you had already, sorry).

WHY doesn't p.org notify me of ANYTHING? I have never ever in five years been notified of a PM, and in the last couple of months it has completely stopped all thread notifications. I do not even get one. WTF????????????????????????????????????????????????

OK, now that dinner is burning and the children have climbed through the hedge and run away from home...I don't care because I'm on Pinterest!

Question: How do I look at my "Likes" after I've collected a whack of them? I can only see a few of them, even though the bar at the top says I have 56...

you want to repin them to your boards in order to see them, it's like collecting ideas and putting them on a virtual clip board. so you can go to your boards and edit the names if you wish, or add any different ones you want ie. sewing patterns. there are two ways to add pins to your own boards.

1. repin from the site. at the top right hand corner of the pin there's the option to like, or repin, repin and then pick from the drop down list which board of your own you want to repin to

2. add a pin from a website. copy and paste the URL into the line that has the http:/

Yes, I get the pinning thing, but I don't get the like thing - if you are collecting likes, you should be able to see them, no? Otherwise, what's the point? You might as well just pin. :confused:

hmm you're right, i'm not sure how that works. Maybe it's to let others know you like it, but not enough to repin it for yourself LOL

Ok, so I'm officially a dummy. I can't figure out how to get this stupid thing to work. I bookmarked the pin tag or whatever, but can't find it. And here's anything. If someone pins a recipe, how the heck do you find the actual recipe? All I can see is the pic and that's not helpful.

ARGH

I'm not sure what you mean by bookmarked the pin.

to get the recipe click on the picture, it will bring you to the actual website where the pin came from

I think that's the step where you drag the "Pin It" feature to your toolbar so that you can start collecting images off the web. I think you should be able to find the recipe by opening the pin...

I joined months ago, but haven't had the time to sit down and figure it out. Maybe I will get around to it soon because I LOVE the concept!! Smile

Thanks for the motivation!

Is signing in through fb or twitter the only way to do this? I don't have either one Sad
