I actually was a pinner before pinning was something that just about everyone knew about. Not that I feel that makes me extra special or anything - Pinterest is actually MORE fun the more people you follow! I love when I get a few minutes to hop on and just see what my friends have been pinning lately.
However, there are a lot of things that drive me CRAZY about Pinterest, too. I thought I'd share some of my Pinterest Pet Peeves with you and see if you agree:
1) When the Pin doesn't go to what it says it should - for example, the other day a friend of mine pinned something about how to make a week's worth of healthy lunches in less than an hour. I clicked on it to see if the lunches were ones I could see myself eating and was assaulted by a woman in short shorts (like butt cheeks hanging out) and leg-warmers. The picture that she had pinned was there (a bunch of bowls all lined up with some salad in them) but the article wasn't. No recipes or tips . . . just a scantly clad aerobics instructor.
2) When ALL of my friends pin the same pin and it comes up on my feed I wish there was something that Pinterest could do about this. Especially because I can't ask my friends NOT to pin a really cool pin because I've already seen it 39 times and pinned it myself. It's more annoying on my phone than on the laptop . . . but still annoying.
3) When someone pins a recipe and writes out the ENTIRE recipe - why bother going to the pin? Plus, it takes up SOO much space when I'm scrolling!!!
4) When someone doesn't describe a pin - picky, right? Too many words and now not enough . . . am I ever happy? hehehe Seriously, though, at least write SOMETHING! I hate when there is a picture I can only kind of make out and someone writes something underneath like "cool" or "I love this". WHAT?!? What do you LOVE?!?
There you have it . . . my biggest Pinterest Pet Peeves. Do you have any that I didn't mention? I'd love to hear about them!
