Follow us on Pinterest

by Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett / L.L. Bartlett

Guess what? I'm on Pinterest.  So is Deb Baker.  And Leann Sweeney.  And Ellery Adams. And Heather Webber/Blake. And our pal Julie Hyzy.  And so (as a group) are the Cozy Chicks.

Talk about a time sink.  But the thing is, it's so much fun!  I vow I'm going go to "play" on there for a few minutes, and the next thing I know, it's been two hours. 

What is it about all those lovely pictures that's so appealing?  Personally, I love all the beautiful pictures of homes, and cooking, and gardens, and ... well, I could go on and on.  As a group (and individually) we have boards about our books, and food, and other fun stuff.  And it's a lot of fun seeing what our readers are up to.  We really don't get to meet many of you face-to-face, but seeing the pictures you choose gives us insight into who you are and what you like and ... isn't it amazing we like so many of the same things?

(And how's that for a cozy reading nook?  Hmmm...that's a great idea for a new board, isn't it?)

We'd love to have you follow us.  Collectively or individually.

Come on -- there are plenty more pictures to share.

I have heard of pinterest and have just now asked for an invite. However until then I hope I can still see you all here.

Are you giving up this site and just going to pinterest?

Not at all. We're also on Facebook and Twitter. It's a way to get our name(s) out there and find new readers. (And have fun, too!)

Pinterest is so time consuming but it is just like looking at a favorite magazine or picture book. I will be following you all.

Lol, I don't need another timesink, so I am not even going to look. Do you now need someone with a wip behind you, saying: stop playing and start writing!

Ok, got my Pinterest and will be trying to figure it out LOL... Now how do you get followers? I am following but have not followers?

I'm waiting for the T-shirt and coffee mug that says, "Everything I needed to learn in life I learned from Pinterest." All of the gardening tips I'm "asking" my husband to implement (epsom salts, etc.) have come from Pinterest. Recipe ideas also!

Very cool.. I'll be sure to follow. Did you also create an account with Clipix? I use Clipix more than Pinterest and it would be cool if you did.

Hey Susan, I've heard of Clipix through blogs and comments. Seems like that name keeps popping up more frequently. Does it offer additional perks over Pinterest or something?
