I know this is one of the latest crazes on the net. But being a newbie to it I'm trying to figure out how to navigate it. Is there a way to navigate the array of topics spewn on every inch of the screen? Is there a main page of some sort? Any sort of order to that site? I've seen people say they found this or that idea on there so I wanted to try it out but I think it's going to take a bit for me to get into this one or shall I say figure out how to navigate it. Any tips on how to use this site? And can you post your own original ideas to it?

You can post your own things..create a board then search for that category....like say antiques.....you just do a search and things come up that are antiques....shops etc then you can follow them...check out what else they have...and people can repost your posts too.

In all honesty, I have no clue what's going on there. I was invited by a friend to use it so I thought what the heck, sure why not. I made a few boards and pinned a few things to them and have a dozen people subscribed to me and just as many I've subscribed to (because - I think - it automatically subscribes you to all of your Facebook friends when you first sign up) but I don't get any kind of notifications when someone pins something new or makes a new board so I'm really not sure what's going on.

I've only gotten notifications of when someone new is following me nothing else. But I think somewhere on the main pages it shows who's repined your pin ect. Why I don't know, it's not like you get any perk to follow or have someone follow you.

I was also introduced to the site and it looks so neat. They had several things that I am interested on there but in order to look at them you have to be a member. I would just love to look at the site and get the recipes and things that I noticed on there. Anyone want to share an invite. I am clueless as to what it will do for you if you share? Perhaps it sends traffic back to your blog?
