I need you. Really. I’m living in the 21st century, but my brain is stuck in 1985.

I’m a pre-teen dancing around my mom’s living room greatly disturbing the tenants in the apartment below because I can’t get enough of Whitney Houston’s new music video “How Will I Know.”

What? You don’t remember it? Well here you go!

In 1985, I didn’t have a cellphone. In 1985, I didn’t have a website. In 1985, I didn’t have the guys who are re-designing my website casually mention that I really should be on Pinterest.


In an effort to be extraordinarily helpful, a group of young men who specialize in branding and website design noticed my social media tags and realized that I wasn’t using Pinterest.

Why would I?, I ask. I already use Facebook and Twitter and Instagram.

Yes, they say, but the women in your tribe are on Pinterest. Don’t you want to hang out with them there too? Maybe even make some new friends?

I am a person who likes to follow advice (especially when I’m paying for it), so I took my website guru guys’ not-so-subtle hint and logged onto Pinterest.

I joined Pinterest about 10 years ago, but I don’t like to cook and I don’t like to craft, so I sort of lost interest. This time I went in with a specific goal… to create cute boards that might make people smile.

Here’s what I’ve got so far. Five boards:

Cute Kindness Quotes

Breast Cancer Awareness Party Ideas God’s Words for Tough Times

Let’s Go Be Kind

and Just Need to Laugh

So here’s where I need help.

  1. Can you please tell me if I’m doing this right? I don’t really get the whole “like” a pin verses “save” a pin thing and who can see each one.
  2. Were my web guys right? Are you really hanging out on Pinterest and having loud Whitney Houston style dance parties without me?
  3. While I’ve got you… Are there any other boards you’d be interested in following if I create them?

Thanks Friends! I look forward to seeing your comments on Facebook!
