Meet Emily: How I Went from Pinterest Hater to Pinterest Doer

Welcome to a blog about four PR girls who are bringing social media to life. We are self-proclaimed authors on an eight week adventure into the depths of modern womanhood: Pinterest.

I’ll admit I have been a Pinterest hater for a while. When I first joined the site it became hours of looking at houses I will never have, clothes I cannot afford, and planning a wedding that is as realistic as the Vikings winning any sort of championship. To me the site became a place of unrealized dreams that left me constantly unsatisfied.

But I am not alone. In fact, a study conducted by TODAY Moms found that 42% of the 7,000 people surveyed felt depressed after using Pinterest.

I want to stop that. I want Pinterest to be real and doable. And I want to inspire women to think that they too can make their Pinterest boards a reality.

This blog is going to be a collection of posts about our Pinterest adventures. We are going to try to make Pinterest practical, because you can do the things you pin.

My projects may fail. The recipes I try might make others sick. The crafts I recreate may be uglier than the foam picture frame I brought home for Mother’s Day that my mom pretended to like. But hey, it doesn’t matter.

Like a friend told me: you are not the sum of your Pinterest board.

    Thanks for that: I don’t want to be the sum of all the boots I don’t own.
