The Charlie Sheen of The Internets (WINNING!)

Pinterest.com

If you haven’t checked it out yet, RUN FAR AWAY.

I’m kidding. Sort of.

Pinterest is a really neat website. The basics: You download a button to your toolbar that allows you to “pin” things. You can pin anything you find on the web – craft ideas, meal ideas, music, clothing, anything. Once you sign up (it’s currently invitation-only, I’ll get to that in a minute), you can follow other people’s boards & repin things you like. People can follow you & repin what they like. It’s a giant web (ha! Get it? On the web?!) of people pinning & repinning & finding new things from all over The Internets. Plus, when you pin something, your pin links directly back to the website it came from. So no more, “Where did I see that mega-cool idea again?”

Jill from BabyRabies.com is starting a McLinky for everyone’s Pin of the Week.

My favorite?

Lullabies for Getty.

A gorgeous collection of songs put together to benefit The Getty Owl Foundation. Getty is a little girl with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. They are fighting for a cure. They are fighting against time. Getty recently turned one. Children with SMA aren’t given long life expectancies. So, they are enjoying every moment & fighting for a cure.

The album is $9.99 on iTunes. Go. Buy it. (Click on the image for a direct link)

You won’t regret it. It truly is spectacular.

(Pinterest is currrently by invite only – you can request an invite, I got mine in a couple weeks. OR, you can leave me a comment with your email address – I suggest typing it out as youremail at wherever dot com to avoid the spam bots – & I’ll send you one as quickly as I can.)

P.S. There is a Pinterest APP! Yay! Time suck on-the-go!!

P.P.S. I totally don’t mean to be insulting by calling Pinterest the Charlie Sheen of the Internets. I mean it in a totally awesomesauce way – because they are so clearly WINNING!)
