Pinterest ~cool Autumn mindscape

All I can think about the last two days is cool weather. It’s finally shown up, at least for the moment. I’ve already had hot cocoa twice. Screen shot 2015-08-20 at 4.12.04 PM Screen shot 2015-08-20 at 4.12.19 PM

Pinterest stopped working a while ago, maybe a year ago, when they changed their algorithm. But it was one of two platforms I actually like (the other being Instagram) and I’ve hung on hoping they would change it again. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen, but I recently figured out how to make it kind of work. Basically you can either bookmark your favorite follows “pins” page and visit them individually or you can do the same through Pinterest, though that’s several more steps. I haven’t looked at my Pinterest feed in ages and now that I’ve found a way around it, I can’t imagine I ever will again.
It’s a crappy fix, but it’ll do while I spend 20 minutes downing 3 cups of coffee, bleary eyed in the morning and trying to turn into a human being, while my kids play on the floor.

  1. That makes me sad I won’t see you on Pinterest anymore. I have so many pins that I love and have forgotten. Some boards I use vision boards and to hold bodies of my work but all in all it is my favorite time suck. Constant inspiration. But as more of my life seems to revolve around a computer I see a slowdown in my future…. xo

    1. Yeah, they really screwed up their own platform 😦 I have you bookmarked though, so I can still see your pins. I check in to Pinterest twice a week now since I figured out how to see people (sort of) again. It’s too time consuming to do daily though.
      The last year I’ve been trying to pry myself away from the computer and use it more as a tool. I have my favorite people that I check up on, like you and your refashions! But other than that I’m not surfing as much as I used to. And it’s pretty good! My life has been pretty stressful this last year and I found that being too plugged in made that worse. I have an obsessive personality and tend to fixate on problems, so the internet isn’t usually the best medicine for that 😀 There’s so many big problems with our country and the world, but I had to just get some perspective, work toward solving the ones I can, vote, write politicians and then just leave it. Otherwise, it just eats me up. It’s depressing :/

      1. YES! Since I’ve been writing more I’ve been on the computer SOOOOOOOOOO much more. plus doing some curating content for a body image site I work with. So I have to surf and it is easy to get distracted by all of the noise in the way! We must do what we need to do to stay grounded and peaceful. I check up on you too! ❤ Also
