I was thinking about starting a pinterest site, so I investigated.
My Definition of Pinterest:
A revealing to others of who a person is by likes and dislikes, desires and wants, a persons imagination unfolded for all to see.
When something or someone new comes into my life I usually ask a very lot of questions of others.
“You went over to their home? How was it? Is it big like a mansion or small and cute like a cottage? What colors do they like? Is it modern or traditional? What kind of art do they display? Abstract or Realism? What kind of yard to they have? Is it only grass and no trees? Or do they seem to enjoy growing instead of mowing? How many rooms? What does the kitchen look like? (Kitchens are the heart of the home!) Is the front facing south? Or are they facing north? What kind of this? What kind of that?”
I know to some these questions seem like I am being desirous of another’s life. In reality? It is no different then those persons who love pinterest, and post, and post, and post, of those things they like, things that others have revealed in pictures of what their interests are, or desire to one day attain, always reposting and admiring. In reality, I actually deduce who certain people are by how they live… same as they with me. That is our nature. I am not saying it is right or wrong. I am saying that we all have likes and dislikes in our life, and, to be honest, if after my interrogation of Who, What, When, Where, and How, can put my mind at rest of the character of a person, then I say, “More power to them!”
Who? ~ Usually a person is understood by his thought flow. So, this would be pinned under “quips” or “quotes” or “words to live by”.
What? ~ Is anything pertaining to life. Types of food, clothing, exercise, religion, crafts etc. Things that make up “what” a person reveals themselves to be to the world.
When? ~ All those posts about the holidays. Decorations, parties. Time for this and time for that. You get the picture.
Where? ~ Now this is one for everybody to enjoy! Vacations! Where you want to be at this moment or a moment in the future. Those vacations of your wildest dreams, all in pictures to desire and covet in hopes of peace and relaxation.
How? ~ This is a little tricky, for this not only reveals how ones life is being played out through photos, but, in my mind, the how on pinterest would have to be related to all those ideas of cutting back and saving money, like thriftiness in the kitchen and in the home. How to cut back on spending in one area of life so Who can attain and enjoy their What, When, and Where.
