Almost a year ago…
before anyone knew Pinterest…
we had a love affair.
We burned white hot for a couple weeks. I was a pinning maniac for FOURTEEN WHOLE DAYS.
But alas, I got bored.
I did not fully understand how multi-faceted it could be.
Perhaps I let my personal baggage get in the way. I had just gotten out of a bad relationship with Posterous.
And now, eleven months later, here I am at the social media dance and everyone is dancing with my ex, Pinterest! I see you all out there… twirling around with your crafty boards… recipe boards… taking an abundant interest in Pinterest.
If this is part of Pinterests’ plan to make me jealous…
You’re using it in ways I never thought of.
It’s just one step closer to becoming a collective consciousness, and I don’t want to be left out!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a mom, a fashionista, a business, a blogger, a marketer – you’re all chomping at the bit.
Even Reese Witherspoon loves my ex!
I see you all flaunting your love on Twitter and facebook.
Zuckerberg, don’t think I haven’t noticed your pins, buddy.
I look at my archaic cork board in my kitchen, and my eyes fill with tears.
I want you back, Pinterest!
I didn’t know what I had when I had it!
Let’s blow this social media dance, just you and me, and stay up late pinning. If you’re good, I’ll show you some urban home designs I’ve found. I’ll even pin food if you want, and you know how I hate to cook.
So all you pinners out there -
I’m coming for you.
I hope you like my sloppy seconds, because I’m back in the game.
But don’t worry…
It’s highly possible that I can be talked into sharing.
Big Love was one of my favorite shows.
As long as I get to be First Wife.
