Pinterest Rocks Social Media's Hottest Trends List

Back in 2007, I joined an online social networked called Twitter. You've heard of it, right? But back then I heard people giggle about me Tweeting. My husband would make fun of me chatting with my Twitter friends - ahem Tweeps. Many around me thought that it was certainly a passing fad and that it would have no bearing on their life whatsoever.

Who's giggling now?

I would guess that most of us hear the word or see the word Twitter on an almost daily basis. It's not uncommon any longer and it's obviously not as much of a passing fad like so many had predicted.

Last summer I was introduced to Pinterest. Is that new to you?

Thanks to The Organised Housewife on See all her pins here:
After returning from our missions trip in Botswana last June, I was watching some of the more crafty (as in they make things by hand - not that they're mean!) and socially media savvy women post interesting projects and such to their Facebook wall. It intrigued me and soon enough I joined Pinterest and began to pin away.

There Has To Be More

Special thanks to 

Over the last couple of months I've come to realize that there definitely is more to life and that I have been stuck in this monotonous cycle of doing the same thing every week day. And let me tell you, it gets old.

So without a big hoop-la of New Year's Resolutions, I've simply made sure that I'm making an effort to spice things up a bit. Although it's not all that exciting, in the first week of 2012, I've accomplished a lot. It feels good.

And in January alone I've already committed to some fun get-togethers with ladies that are impactful in their lives and I'm going to be gleaning lessons from them on how they get so much done.

I've made a pact with myself to change up steps four and six in the Savage Chickens cartoon above. I'm getting offline more and turning off the television. Most of the the time the television has simply been on in the background as I wandered around the internet anyway.

I'll let you know what kind of progress I make and ideally there will be some great things coming out of this new found freedom from electronics. I'm jazzed about it!
