Joyful Molly on Pinterest

While looking at my list of bookmarks filed under “to be sorted”, I first screamed and then joined Pinterest. Despite their questionable terms of service (I don’t recommend to upload original artwork, texts etc.) I found it to be very useful to collect and file pictures and other bits and pieces of interest. Easier to use and less chaotic than tumblr, it’s a great way to keep track of resources. So all I keep bookmarked are articles and other texts and feel much better now. That could also be down to the excellent butter scotch liquour here, though.

Feel free to have a look at my Pinterest; I currently have boards (files) covering history, home, books, art, fashion, music, geekery etc., and as I use it for all “pinning” purposes, be it for research, writing or daily life, the content is not exclusively 18th century.

You can follow my pinning / pinnery (what’s the appropriate term, I wonder?) by subscribing to the feed, but please keep in mind that there might be many pins per day. I don’t want you to drown under home improvement tips and shoes.

    Yes, absolutely! I was having similar issues and signed up to pinterest, and have found it much easier to keep track of things there.

      It’s a blessing. And needless to say, I just *had* to follow your “socks”!!!
