I'm a late bloomer. I always have been. When Pinterest first became the latest and greatest, I created an account and sort of perused. Life was busy and I didn't really have the time to keep up with another social media platform. Well, I re-visited it recently and have come to the conclusion that it is totally amazing!!! Not only does it successfully satisfy my weird obsession for digital organization, (for real...you should see my folder structure for client photos...it borders on ridonkulous) I also realized it's all about what I like. I somehow got it in my head that people who followed me would judge what I pinned. Which is of course ludicrous because at the beginning I think I only had like 3 followers and they were all friends. So really, how harshly could I be judged??
Since my Pinterest epiphany, I've had to seriously control the amount of time I spent on it. Minutes quickly turn into hours, which I could see quickly turning into days. Therefore, I limit myself to 15 mins max. It's hard to exert that kind of self control, but so far, I've managed to stick to it.
