Update: WE'RE PINNING, BISHES! 

Okay, since most of you said public was fine with a few saying you'd prefer private, here are two options:

  • Public: Post a link to your Pinterest here. Specifically, a link to your baby board is encouraged. (Folks can click on your name to follow all of your boards, if they want.) You'll probably need to get on a computer for this. Or, just post what name we should search for. 
Example: 


Username: janedoe

Private: Don't want to post your public stuff here? I'd suggest waiting a few days then coming back to this thread. You'll be able to start "following" those who do go public, and they can follow you back, if wanted. (That seems like the easiest way to do it.)

BECAUSE WIMMINS LUV PINTEREST, AMIRITE?

No, but kind of. Well, I was thinking it could be a way to share our baby-related boards with each other and relevant pins. Additionally, we also would have the option of making a group board where we pin stuff. 

There are also ways to make this private vs. public. For a private option, I could make a Google form where everyone submits their a) email address and b) Pinterest name. Then it would create a spreadsheet of everyone's emails/Pinterest names that would be shared with everyone who had submitted. Or, if folks are comfortable with it being public, they could just post them within the thread. 

Thoughts? 

Are you interested? 

Would you just like to follow other users? 

Would you want to see a June '14 board that we could all pin to? (If so, public or "secret" board?)

Would anyone else be willing to help me out with this?

Re: Time to Pinterest! (Updated with instructions)

  • LOVE the idea. I'm in!

    I don't really care one way or the other, if it's public or private. 

    I didn't know Pinterest had secret boards, so I'm not very helpful with that. 
  • I'm in, also don't care if it's public or private... You all can decide that :)

  • I'm in! I would love to see everyone else's boards and share some of my own. I don't care too much whether or not it's private; I'm probably a little too lax about letting people know who I am online.

    Because I was super cautious about my identity when I signed up to the bump and I just used my real name.  Duhhh 8-|

  • Yes! Public is fine (seems like less work?). I have so enjoyed scouting everyone's nursery pics - I'd love an easy way to pin to my own baby board for ideas and links.

  • I'm in, I don't care if it's not private as long as someone who knows me on pinterest can't trace me back to my bump name.

  • I am in.

    Does not matter what way u do it just let me know Please.
  • I really like this idea. I'm not "out" on the Internet yet (you ladies are the only Internet place that knows I'm pregnant). I planned on not making an announcement until the baby is actually here so I probably won't post anything but would LOVE to lurk and see all creative ideas. Is that OK or even possible? Good idea in any case. :)
  • I think it sounds like a great idea! I also think public is the way to go

  • I think its a great idea.

    I had to check to make sure I still had my pinterest password to log in lol. I have my pinterest under a name no one who knows me will find, so! Privacy isn't an issue lol I'm already hidden from the people I want to avoid(:
