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.  :)

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.
