Thanks to Bad Mummy! No Cookie! I got an invite to join Pinterest.  I like the crowd it’s attracting, and it’s got a pretty nice interface. I went through my extensive craftlinks bookmarks folder tonight and added them to it to get started. Now to port my links from Curbly and Evernote.

I hate hate hate that I had to link my Facebook account to it, though (you can also use twitter).  I was on the verge of deleting my account when I noticed it had my photo and last name plastered all over my public pages, and it had gone through my facebook friends and pre-followed people.  No thanks, stupid website.  It’s bad enough that google has figured out who I am.  Luckily, they let you unlink the account after the initial signup, though. Just go to edit profile and you can change it all up.

I’m also annoyed that another Maitreya got to my username first, but that’s hardly Printerest’s fault.  It’s the second time that happened this week!

Anyway, here are my pinboards if you’re interested and want to be friends or followers or whatever they’re calling it. I’ve also got a few invites if anyone wants one.

One last thing, I also like that I can theoretically syndicate it to the blog, though that functionality leaves much to be desired as you can see from the weird squished images below (if you can see them at all).
