Pinterest Post #2: 5 People to Follow and 5 Bad-Ass Bookish Pins

Pinterest: (noun):  Highly addictive online interactive bulletin board format that allows you to bookmark photos and links that make you a better person, that make you giggle, that inspire you, that forces you to think and consider, that makes you want to eat (let's be real here).

If you have not jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon, you probably have significantly more free time than those of us who have.  One aspect I like about Pinterest is that I find so many useful ideas, from art projects to blogging ideas to books to read to new yummy delicious food to try (did I mention that?).

I was considering how to make Pinterest more interactive with my blog and how to give credit to those pinners and pins that inspire me.   Therefore I am going to give said pinners and pins that do so each week a great big shout out on the blog.  Yep, shit just got real.


1.  Love My Books pinned this lovely picture, which I discovered this week via Carol Shepko.

2. The definitive Mad Men reading list - check it out!  via Angel Holmes

3. Thirty Pieces of Wisdom from Stephen King Novels via Sarah Thompson

4. Le sigh....via BEA

5. WANT!!!  via sourcebooks.

  2. Pinterest is great for social bookmarking, but what about personal bookmarking - the bookmarks for the sites you visit over and over? My company operates, and we believe it is exactly what the world needs now - a real personal productivity booster. It's a free cloud-based Internet bookmarking service. With all your bookmarks are always available using any browser from any computer, mobile phone or tablet. The iCrumz interface allows you to have 100 or more bookmarks on a single webpage without being cluttered. iCrumz also offers an import function, so you can import and consolidate all your bookmarks from all your browsers on all your devices. Check out our short (1 minute) intro video: Contact me if you have any questions. Matthew[at]iCrumz[dot]com.
