Here's the challenge: commit to reading 50 books and watching 50 movies in the next year! (Find out more...)
In our ongoing effort to figure out the best way to keep track of our books/movies, today we'll look at Pinterest.
One of the hot new internet things, Pinterest is an inspiration board with social networking baked in. As a recent first time user, I can see how it's useful and addictive. Much like a Tumblr, Pinterest is super easy to use and allows you to tag things from around the Internet and then have them appear all organized and pretty for your display.
For fiftyfifty.me purposes, Pinterest serves as a nice visual take on what you've been reading and watching. Additionally, it allows for easy commenting and following people back and forth. Already I'm envisioning how cool my Pinterest will look with tons of stuff on it!
I'm having some trouble picking through everyone's Pinterest streams but I'm sure there's a setting I'm missing. For now, Pinterest is invite-only but if you need an invite, just ask us and we'll send you one.
Here's some fiftyfifty.me participants that are already using Pinterest to keep track of their books and movies. Check'em out and then follow them -- and if we missed you, comment or email us and we'll add you right away. And big thanks to Laura (@lolliknits) and Camilla (@manukenkun) for thinking of using Pinterest to keep track of stuff!
