It has been awhile since my last post. For that, adoring public, I am sorry. This is going to be a quickie but it’s just something I need to get off my chest.
I need to talk about Pinterest. Not Pinterest as a whole – in general the site is genius. Seriously, it has single handedly kept Big Sara busy and she’s been leaving me alone. A little bit. What I really need to talk about is the over-pinner.
You know exactly what I am talking about… unless you ARE the over-pinner. If you find, after reading this that you are, in fact, an over-pinner… there are 12 steps you can follow and the first is admitting you have a problem.
The over pinner is NOT the person that pins a lot of great stuff. Those I like. Those save me time. I have a couple friends that pin a lot of stuff and its always-good stuff – cute outfits, good recipes, pretty homes. But there are some people out there with terrible pinning. You know the person that pins 50 pins of “What to do when your child vomits” or 100 pins of random pictures of potting soil.
I suppose it’s the overpinners right to pin whatever they want. Whatever project is important to them like 950 pins of parakeets cause their kid is going to take care of the class parakeet for one freaking day. But over-pinners of the world… I need you to do me a favor. Actually three things.
- Just like things. Not everything has to be pinned.
- Do what I do – live in fear of becoming an overpinner. Pin stealthily late at night or in the wee hours of the morning. This way, other people will dilute your pins on my feed. This should be seriously considered as the only acceptable way to overpin.
- Don’t pin. Just don’t.
I am trying to come up with a PINTERVENTION for these people but I haven’t quite figured out how to tell someone that their interests suck, they need to get out more and that they are never, ever going to make all those desserts. But I’m working on it.
