I guess 39 is kicking my ass mentally. I have officially started a semi-Bucket List.
Ok, this is me, so you know I can’t just write out a Bucket List – there has to be a Social Media Spin on it.
So I started it on Pinterest. You do know what that is right? If not, please crawl out from under your rock and pay attention.
Pinterest is a new spin on Social Bookmarking. Once you sign up for an account, you can create “Boards” which are basically like bulletin boards that you can “pin” things you like. You can theme and categorize your boards, and also follow other Pinterest Members and like and share thing they have pinned (which is where the social media component of Pinterest comes into play) Where the social bookingmarking comes into play is you can basically anything you find on the web… (even though currently I see most people not taking advantage of this curation possibility, most I find simply re-pin things already existing in the Pinterest Community) Since this whole platform is based around the concept of an idea board, when you pin something, like a website or article, instead of just text in the form of a link.
