It was at the #JoziMeetup a few weeks ago that I logged into Pinterest again after hearing Laura talking about the impact that Pinterest was having on her blog. It had been so long since logging in that I had forgotten my password, so had to do a re-set.
As I starting pinning all the doughnuts, and creating French poodle, ice cream and croquembouche boards, I was reminded why I used to love Pinterest so much. And I started wondering why on earth I left the platform in the first place.
Despite the beautiful styling and wonderful curation of content on Pinterest, I feel more at home here than so many other platforms. There’s prettiness around me, no fighting about race or religion, no pics of dog abuse, and no overthinking of everyone’s “perfect” Instagram lives. On Pinterest, it’s just about the delicious doughnuts, pretty baby nurseries, cute Hello Kitty gear, perfect Paris and more.
