I joined Pinterest. I know, Pinterest is not supposed to be a guy thing, and in fact I did not actively go to the Pinterest web site and sign up.
What happened is this. I was looking on Google for something very specific. I wanted to know the proper cooking time for kabobs on my NuWave oven. I was on Google because there are no kabob recipes in my NuWave cookbook. I found exactly what I was looking for and clicked the link. Google took me to Pinterest, which demanded that I sign up. Since they allowed sign-up via Facebook I did so. Only to discover that the recipe wasn’t there.
However, when I signed up for Pinterest it wanted me to specify my interests. I focused on food and cooking topics. So now when I go to the Pinterest home page I am met with all kinds of interesting recipes.
Given the nature of the current election cycle, I am greatly reducing the amount of time I spend on Facebook, not to mention following the news. Despite my attempts to adjust Facebook settings to avoid posts about the angry hamster, I see those posts far more often than I would like. The only solution is to spend less time on Facebook.
I can spend that time on Pinterest instead looking at interesting, intriguing recipes.
