So I’ve expressed to you all that I’m fairly new to much of the social media scene.
Sure, I’ve had my personal facebook page since college (back in the day it was THE facebook,when you posted your classes, and it was ONLY for college students). But it wasn’t until the blog that I got into twitter and pinterest, I just made a blog facebook page, and I am still waiting to get a smart phone to join instagram.
But thanks to the blog and you all, I feel like I’m learning, slowly but surely. And last night was a big step for me.
My first attempt at a pinterest baking “pin” since I started the blog :).
I’m going to save the recipe for you until all Zach and I actually try it tonight — but for now I’ll give you a teaser shot:
While I was baking last night, I got to thinking – – I’ve never actually tried to bake anything that I’ve pinned.
I did use pinterest to help find inspiration for my wedding — colors, styles, hair-do, bridesmaid dresses. I’ve even used it for cleaning tricks (I microwaved a bowl of vinegar and water for 5 minutes, and then wiped down our microwave to clean it before we moved last year. Worked like a charm, stuff came right off).
But baking — I hadn’t actually used it yet.
I’ve heard of pinterest fail (and certainly gotten a few laughs from it. NAILED IT) — and knew that a lot of people find what they pin a little more challenging in practice than in pictures. And to be honest, I was a little afraid, myself, that I would “fail” if I attempted any. So since I started my “pinterest,” my baking board has been more of a dream board.
Well that all changed last night and I’m excited about it! I am making a vow to myself to use it as inspiration and try things that I wouldn’t otherwise.
Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t bake exactly what I pinned. I used it as a starting point, and made it my own. But I think that’s great,. I still got my inspiration from the pin, and hopefully made something delicious from it. Talk about finding inspiration, and now I can’t wait to try a lot more! Sometimes I love social media 🙂
So I guess I’m asking you all. . .
Has anyone else not “used” their pinterest boards? Or do you have a board that is more of a dream than reality?
