Maybe your planning a wedding or building your dream home. Pin your favorite items on their own board for easy reference.

Pinterest is growing rapidly. Grow your social network by following others, commenting on other peoples pins and sharing their pins.

After you find a photo you want to pin to one of your boards be sure to write a few sentences about the photo or website and copy and paste the url ( example url into the comment box for easy access back to the referenced item. This is a great way to promote your photos, blog posts and your colleagues.
