Just a break from our regularly scheduled lack of blog programming.  I just had the unrelenting urge to share with you my newest online discovery*.

I give you... Pinterest.

I absolutely love this site.

All this time, I've been scouring the internet for images that I use for inspiration in my writing, as well as in my daily life.  When I find an image I like, I right-click and save the image file to a folder on my computer.  Sometimes, I have the wherewithal to take down the URL of the site I found the image on.  A lot of times, not.  The ultimate plan for all the collected images was to create a mood board for each facet of my life.

Now that Pinterest is around, I don't have to worry about the physical mood board anymore.   It's all virtual now, baby.

With the site's "Pin It" marklet, the image is saved to one of the "pinboards" I create, along with the URL. I never have to worry about the source information ever again.  If I have to give credit to someone, I'll know how to find them.

Check out my Pinboards and follow if you like.

* I must credit my dear friend, ChichaJo of 80Breakfasts for this discovery.  She's my favorite foodie blogger, and was one of my very first blogging friends ever.
