I think it's because it's one of the new sites, so it's trying to be exclusive :wink:

I joined because of eggs!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

OK I've requested an invite. It doesn't give any other info except 'wait for an invite' so how are you all doing it for each other? :dontknow:

we can email invites...PM me your email address and I'll send one...I think that means that you instantly become one of my 'followers', but i'm not sure.

Thanks Fee for the invite. The automated one came in about 24 hours later. I was automatically given a load of people to follow, some of my facebook friends and others I've never heard of, presumably based on my interests. Now having to delete them as I have little in common with them. :dontknow:

I can understand people being attracted by the 'pretty pictures' and I would have loved something like this 10 or so years ago when I was madly into those home and garden makeover programmes on telly! Don't so much care about decor any more. :lol:

I'm quite annoyed though that I can't get it to stop showing my stuff on facebook even though I've told it not to. I don't understand why you have to join up thru either FB or Twitter. What if you have neither account? :dontknow: I hate letting apps in. :roll:

Don't worry. I can't see your Pinterest stuff through Facebook so it's probably set so only you can see it. x

I had never heard of it until I found I was getting hits on my website through a pinterest page where they had pinned one of my articles on a DIY bokashi bucket. Looks like a lot of fun and some really interesting stuff!

I quite like the pretty pictures :iconbiggrin: . I've had hits from StumbleUpon and thought it was web trawler (crawler? not sure of this techie lingo) stuff, but found that Stonehead had put my blog up there. Thanks Stoney! :iconbiggrin:

I like Pinterest better now I have worked out that I can upload a photo direct from my hard disk and it shows them up really well if you click on them, then it allows you to zoom in again. :thumbright:
