I Love Pinterest

(Mud)Bucket readers, please meet Pinterest. This is an amazing tool I learned about via SFgirlbybay. Basically it's a virtual bulletin board that collects images while you surf the web. It's a great tool for making shopping lists, collecting inspiration and ideas, creating moodboards, whatever.  I'm using it for a couple reasons, one of which is to catalog all the artists I share on (Mud)Bucket, plus some, so that you and I can quickly visualize and find all the artists that can be found on (Mud)Bucket. Now it's not in any order, other than a slight chronological order according to the date each artist was posted on the blog, but I'm hoping you'll be able to find artists you like by seeing an example of their work.  Go and visit, let me know what you think... and let me know if you'd like to be invited to try it out (I've got a couple invites left). I'll be adding a direct link on the sidebar soon so that you can access this pinboard easily through the blog.

I'm Paul and I work at Pinterest. Thanks so much for the post, and I'm really glad you're enjoying the site. Email me at paul [at] pinterest [dot] com with questions, comments or suggestions. We love feedback!

Also, we're just now planning on making some "badges" to it's easier to link your blog to your Pinterest account. Are there any sites that have done this particularly well that we should emulate? Is there a size (or sizes) that would be best?

If you still have invites available, I would LOVE to try this out. I'm sort of digital magpie, and have and obscene amount of "inspiration folders" with no rhyme or reason on my computer. I like to use Polyvore for fashiony type things, but I love the fact that this seems to be applicable to any kind of subject. My email is honeyspy@gmail.com. thx!

Ok Jesse... once again you're leading the way.
I can see a few different ways to use this application... time to explore and see how it fits. You might be hearing form me soon Paul.

This is amazing! I'd love an invite if anyone still has any. Pamm3@hotmail.com

I would love to use this as inspiration when teaching students. it is sometimes hard for them to find great contemporary works.

Thanks for the great post as always!
