Since I've noticed that many of our guests haven't yet made the leap into Pinterest...
"it's too much like Facebook" (not even close,)I thought some may like a short "how to" on what it's all about.
"I don't understand it," (I'm gonna show you,) or
"It'll take too much of my time," (you've got me there-I've got to really watch myself or hours could go by.)
What it is
Imagine a bulletin board...divided into sections. Each section has a different theme, each one, a favorite of yours. Maybe it's Crafts, DIY stuff, Recipes, the RV Parks you've most enjoyed, gardening tips, fashion ideas, home decor or what to do and see in your favorite city. If you really love cooking, you may include sections - Pinterest calls them boards - on specific types of food, appetizers, Chinese, desserts, etc. Wait, let me just show you what I mean. Here's a screenshot of a part of my Pinterest page and boards.

These are few of my boards. Each board can have an unlimited number of pins, or pictures. Here you can only see five of the pins on each board...the large one on the cover and four thumbnail sized ones. Clicking on your or someone else's board will show you ALL their pins. For example, if you click on the board on the top right called RV Travel and Tips - this is part what you'll see:
