If You (Or Someone In Your House) Isn’t On Pinterest, You Should Be

I first laughed when I heard chatter about Pinterest.  For those who don’t know, it’s a social media outlet where you share images rather than statuses.  It’s really caught on with women, as many women have found things like recipes, fashion tips, and other things that (not to be sexist) generally aren’t as interesting to men as they are to women. I thought ‘Oh, just another passing fad’.

Soon, I started seeing my wife sitting in front of the computer for long stretches at a time, failing to answer roughly two-thirds of questions directed her way.  When I probed to find out what was the new source of interest, it turns out she had come across Pinterest.

Now, I have only seen Pinterest in passing, but I have to say, having one person in our household has been a good thing.

Liking Something When I Don’t Really Like It

More often than not, I find myself hitting the ‘Like’ button for a company when I’m really not liking them at all.  Don’t get me wrong, I do ‘Like’ a lot of things that I really do like, but there are times when I ‘Like’ something so that I can get help about something or let the company know that I’m having a problem with something that they’ve provided.

Does it work?
