Pinterest is an odd duck in the world of social media. If you’re an introvert, it’s tailor-made for you. It’s possible to reap the benefits of the site without interacting directly with a single solitary person. It’s kind of restful after Twitter and Facebook, using the whole “a change is as good as a break” philosophy.
Also, if you’re a fantasy reader or writer, Pinterest is definitely a site for you. Fantasy has a built-in bias that favors genre artwork. Fantasy enthusiasts have always enjoyed perusing the latest illustrations of hobbits, dwarves, dragons, and other faerie creatures. Pinterest just makes it a lot more organized.
That’s why I started. I decided it was silly that I was saving my images only on hard drives and thumb drives. I had a dragon folder, griffin folder, etc. so I could find particularly compelling images later that I’d found on Google searches.
