Thursday: Social Media

So my recent love on the social media scene has been Pintrest. If you don't know what it is, it is literally like having a virtual cork bored for pictures of anything and everything. It can get a little addicting. You can like the "pins" of others, follow other people and repin what they put on their sites. You can also have separate boards for different things. For example, if you wanted to have a clothing board, a interior design board, and anything else.

Here is a picture of one of my boards:

The set up is really sleek and simple which I love and it lets the colors in the pictures pop so much more :)

Another site that I had discovered a while ago and just went back to is It is this great site where you can write freely. It is sort of like an online journal. It keeps track of how many days you write, if you write everyday in a row, how many words, and much more. The goal is to write at least 750 words a day. It is a open white space so it is really easy to start typing and get carried away. You can earn badges on the site too for how much writing you do, how fast, etc.

One of the best things about this site is that it takes note of the things you write about, they call it "your subconscious"-- what your mood seems to be while writing, words you write a lot, and it sort of gives you a look into the type of writing you do. Sometimes an entry will be more negative and it will tell you that. It notes how much you swear, or how positive you're being. It is incredible how much you can learn.

The layout is very minimalistic. I think it is a great way to get motivated to write, and learn about yourself in the process. I really want to try to get into this for real.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
