6 Reasons Why I Love Pinterest

Though it's often forgotten when it comes to praise for social media, Pinterest is actually my favorite when it comes to useful online tools. After Twitter and Facebook, it's the third most popular social media app, dominated by women, and going on it's sixth year of progress. Here are six reasons why Pinterest is a website you should totally check out.

1) It's Free

Pinterest is totally free to use, so there's really no excuse not to download it today! You can even get the mobile app for iPhone or Android, which works just as well and smoothly as the desktop site in my opinion.

2) There's something for everyone

Whatever you're looking for, there's something for you. If you need inspiration for your wedding, everyone's tastes are represented. It's especially useful for aspiring teachers or babysitters, because there are never a lack of craft ideas for kids that are both fun and educational!

3) It's very organized

Pinterst uses things called "boards" to which you can title, theme, and save a collection of links. Most people title these boards after their themes, and it makes it very easy to find exactly what you're looking for when you're going back to find it later. Personally, I used to just create a favorite list of all the pages I liked way back in the days of Internet Explorer's dominance and I'd always forget about them. Pinterest has totally solved that problem!

4) You can make your boards a secret

Pinterest offers the option to create a "secret" or hidden board that no one besides you can see. Very little on social media is anonymous and private these days, so I love this feature. I even used it to plan my mother's surprise birthday party last year!

5) You can follow who you want

Nobody will be offended if you don't follow them on Pinterst because it doesn't say "Hey I don't care about your kids/family." It just says "you aren't interested in the same type of crafts as I am." That way, you can only see things you actually want to see. Many prolific bloggers and artists have come to importance on Pinterest as well, so you can follow their work too. It's a win-win!

6) It's easy to find the source of your pins

Sometimes when you're surfing the web, it's impossible to find the original source of an image or idea. With Pinterest, you won't have that issue, since each pin leads directly to where the user found it. Since there are many original content creators promoting their work on the site as well, you might even discover a new favorite artist directly!

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
