Pinterest  
A week or so ago, a friend sent me a link to this thing called Pinterest, with the note that he thought I might be interested because of my jewelry. I checked it out, saw that is was this kind of virtual corkboard people "pin" things they're interested in. Things like recipes, pictures, etc. I made a mental note to join, and then kind of forgot about it. 

Then today, I was checking my shop stats - it's a page you can view with Etsy that tells you where your traffic is coming from, sort of. Like, I can see when someone clicks through to my store from facebook or livejournal, but it's not an exact science. Still, today there are three views and I think a couple of item favorites that originated from Pinterest. So I checked it out again. I went ahead and sent a request to join, and got an e-mail back saying there is a waiting list! A google search seems to identify that some people have been waiting to join for a really long time. So, while I have no idea how long it will be before I get an account there, thank you to whoever has been linking things from my Etsy store.  :)

Weird! Well...maybe someone will invite me! LOL.

Seriously, though, maybe the site gives out so many "memberships" and then gives those members invites to hand out, ala gmail in the old days?

I can send you an invitation if you give me your email.

Awesome! Thank you much. :) The recipe sharing/saving alone looks very cool. Although a startling number of those I looked at today contain cream cheese as a main ingredient, which seems an odd trend. Anyway...

Invite sent!

Received! Thanks. :) Now the agony of deciding what username to use...although it's linked to my facebook, apparently, which means Rhien is right out. *sigh* Perhaps my real name, or some form of it.

You can unlink it from FB in Settings. I signed up through my Twitter account and then unlinked it right away.

I think I waited a few days for mine? Not more than a week.
