Always Late to the Party

I’m always behind on social media. Blogging originated back in 1997. I started blogging in 2010. Facebook originated in 2004. IMomento jar joined in 2010. Twitter originated in 2006. I joined in 2010. Pinterest originated in 2010. I joined last week.

Each time I join a new social network, I become obsessed with it and it cuts into my productivity. That’s why I don’t just jump into everything. If I did, I’d never get any writing done. So, all you wonderful writer friends who keep inviting me to join Google +, I’m sorry, but I’m dancing as fast as I can with all my other social networking.

Back to my latest obsession–Pinterest. This is a must have for an author. I’m in the process of cleaning out all my files stored on my computer. I have pictures I used for inspiration in my published books, future character pictures, pictures of houses, cars, trucks, and pets that belong to my characters. It’s all getting transferred to my Pinterest boards. So far, I have a board for character inspiration, a board for each of my most recently published books, and a board for upcoming releases.

Along with book stuff, I created a board for furniture my husband made, crafts I made, my office, my husband’s man cave, and our son’s Bass Pro Shop themed room. I also have a board for nifty craft ideas for future use. I’m planning a recipe board even though I try really hard not to cook much. With Pinterest, I don’t forget things or lose them. The possibilities are endless.

My favorite pin so far – the memory jar I made. When my son was younger, he loved collecting unique things. Crystals, colored rocks, crawdad pincers, empty wasp nests, fools gold, arrowheads, seed pods, and countless other oddities we found or bought. When he was ready to get rid of his collection, I wasn’t. I put it all in a jar and display it on a shelf. It’s pretty and makes me smile every time I look at it. I still have his collection of feathers too. I’ve been trying to find a really tall jar to put them in. I thought about a vase, but with a lid, you only have to dust the jar. And I’m not a fan of dusting either.

In the meantime, I gotta go. I’m working on a new board on Pinterest. Since my name never fits, I’m stvannatter or search Shannon Taylor Vannatter. Come check out my boards.
