    Not sure what Pinterest is...When I clicked on your links (and then tried to go directly to the site) I got this error message: "Bad gateway" ?? Maybe the site is down right now.

    It does it to me sometimes. It is an awesome site full of every idea you could possibly imagine. I had so many folders saved on the computer, but this site will house your favorites with pictures from the site. I love it so much!

    It's addicting. The first day I had it, I spent, no joke, four hours pinning things! I still regret about two of those hours...

    I just learned about pinterest when I found pictures from my website on their website. It's such a neat thing. I'm excited to start pinning myself!

    Also addicted. So far I'm just using it for teaching/classroom ideas... that will probably change, seeing as how I'm an epic dork.

    I have no idea what pinterest is. I know so many teachers are obsessed with it. I guess I need to figure out what it is and how to use it.

    Ok so I just sat here for over an hour looking at the site. I love it. I just have to wait for my invite. It is taking forever.

    Just found out my boss is an investor in Pinterest! I'm totally hooked, and I was poking around the About page, and was shocked to see his name on there! I just had a great conversation with him about it-he said he's on the phone with Ben, the CEO over there, every weekend coming up with great ideas for future features. Now I don't feel so bad having the page open at work. ;)

    I just sent a suggestion over directly that when you want to add an important update to a Pin that everyone who has re-pinned should know, there should be a quick way to comment on all the re-pins. I pinned a fancy cupcake holder a few days ago, and just found the free pattern for it. It's been repinned 25+ times, and I just don't have the time to comment on each re-pin and tell them where to find the pattern. Ben said they are working on that.
