You may have heard a lot of talk about something called Pinterest. What is Pinterest? Well, it is what it sounds like: Pinning things that you're interested in. And if you're reading this article, you're obviously interested in baked goods.
So if you want a board for cakes, you can have a cake board. One for cookies? Okay, you can have one for that, too. Whatever your heart desires. Choose a category at the top and get ready to lose hours of your life pinning.
The best thing about this website is that you're not just looking at titles of recipes; you're looking at photos. Beautifully delicious ones. Like this Flourless Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Sauce. If that doesn't make you salivate, what will?
When you click on the photos, you can "repin" them. What this means is that someone "pinned" the website to their board and now you are going to do the same. Sometimes clicking on a photo will take you directly to the recipe. Other times, it will take you to a blog that contains a link to the recipe. Either way, if you're interested in baking, you're going to be interested in these websites and blogs.
Another great feature is the comments. Let's say you're like myself and own a bakery, the more you comment on people's pins, the more exposure you are getting. Someone might see your comment and think it's interesting, so they click on your icon and it will bring them to your homepage of boards that you can then follow.
Pinterest is a community of people with a love of baking. If you love baking, too, you should definitely join the masses. You will be sure to find creative and delicious ideas for your next dessert.
