pin all the things!
A while ago, I mentioned that I was dipping my toe into the Pinterest waters. Well, the water was cold. Icily, shivery, bracingly cold.
It’s not that I didn’t like Pinterest, exactly; I just didn’t quite get it. (Probably doesn’t help that it was a total PITA to sign up for. They gave me nothing but trouble about coming up with a username. :evilmonkey )
So I abandoned ship. Better things to do, no time to figure it out just then. :slamdesk But I went back. And I figured it out. (Not saying I’m a pro, but I bungled my way through creating at least a few boards.)
So far, I’ve created boards for SECRETS, LIES & LULLABIES (coming in November!), ON THE VERGE OF I DO, MUST LOVE VAMPIRES (coming next month!), & THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. This is where I’m pinning covers & pictures that I used as inspiration while writing each book. And I intend to go back & create boards for all of my other books, too, when I have the time.
They were really fun to put together, & I love having all those pics together in one place. I really hope you’ll check them out—especially the one for SECRETS, LIES & LULLABIES…it will get you charged up for Alex & Jessica’s story, for sure. :happysun
And then I also started one called “If I Had $1,000,000” for fun & fancy things that catch my eye & I wish I could have. You know, if I had $1,000,000. :patrick2
So I hope you’ll run over to Pinterest & follow me. My Pinterest username is TheHeidiBetts, so you can find me at http://pinterest.com/TheHeidiBetts.
I may not add a lot of fresh pins on a really regular basis, but when I do, you can bet they’ll be awesome. :howyoudoin And though I’m not there yet, I can definitely see how this site could become addictive. Which means that one of these days, this will be me…

I looked at a few boards a few weeks ago and just couldn’t get into the whole pinning thing.

When I don’t fully understand something, I have to go about it in steps. Which is why first I went to the site & poked around…then I signed up…then I ignored it for a while…then I went back & poked around again.
I get it now, & it is fun, but I like having a *reason* to post stuff—like inspie pics for my books. I don’t think I’ll go overboard posting every little thing; I’m way more organized & OCD than that. LOL But I do like being able to create a board for each of my new books, put up promo stuff, maybe pin pics of fun & unique stuff that catches my eye. :patrick

:thumbsup Loved your pinterest site. Would love to have the calendar you pinned on the $1,000,000 board. Just don’t have the interest to join right now, maybe sometime in the future. :happysun

That’s what I think is so neat about Pinterest—you can bop in, check out people’s boards, but not sign up yourself. I did that myself before deciding to take the plunge. :cool

I don’t have a Pinterest problem. I can quit at any time. Said no pinner ever!
I love Pinterest. In fact dinner was brought to the family by Pinterest. Wait…I’m cooking? Pinterest is a trap!! (okay–I know I have a pinning problem, even Pinterest follows me!!)

LOL I kind of suspected you had a Pinterest problem. You’re the one who first pointed me in that direction, after all. :biteya But I totally believe you—you can quit any time you want. Uh-huh. Sure. :cat
