Default WW on Pinterest

One of my co-workers just pointed out that Weight Watchers has a page on pinterest now - Just in case you didn't know & are interested in following them. It seems to be fairly new because they don't have a lot of followers yet (59 a few minutes ago)

Anywhere I can get more recipies with pp already calculated the better :-)

They describe themselves as a virtual pin board.

I usually describe it to people as visual bookmarks - that can be shared with other people. You can have boards for different things such as recipes, vacation spots you want to visit, books you want to read, art you like... anything really.

I warn you however, it can be addictive. :-)

I asked the same think on my FB the other day, "What's the point of pinterest?" I had a couple of friends respond to how neat it was and sent me an invite.

Yes, you just look at things, but it's a nice way to save ideas of things you'd like to do or maybe recipes you'd like to try. One of my bulletin boards is Dream Home. Hubby and I talk about some day building a home and how we'd like to have certain things in it. When the time comes, I'll never remember any of it. So with this, if I see things that would be cool to have in our dream home, I can pin it and refer to it another time. In the one night I've looked at it, I pinned several recipes, some home organizational ideas I'd like to try, and a couple of kids things that I think would be helpful.

Again, I'm just a rookie and have yet to really dive into it. I'd be happy to send an invite if someone wants it. I don't know the rules on that, though. Am I limited in the number of invites I have? I don't receive an incentive or anything, would I? I'm guessing if it's incentivized, I shouldn't offer invites on this site??

Mom2my3angels - I just sent you an invite.

Mammasita - I could send you one too but I'd need your email. Is there any way to PM it to me on here if you don't want to post it (which I totally understand!)?

LisaLou - There's not an incentive for sending invites or for people joining. Think of it kind of like when Gmail (or Google +) used to be invite only.

I've been on it for a few months and there's still so much I'm still learning about it. Of course I don't get on it everyday.

You can search for Weight Watchers in the search field then you can follow all of the boards or pick and choose the boards you want to follow.
