Pinterest: What I Did Instead of Blogging

I’ve been getting to know Pinterest as an extension of my blog, as a visual way of saving links that interest me, and just for fun 🙂 So far I have 9 boards: Book Reviews, Sacred Pauses, Spiritual Practice, Women in Church Leadership, Creativity, Poets and Poetry, Writing Quotes, Easy Food Gifts, Healthy Crockpot.
