The bubble has burst.
The honeymoon is over.
The thrill is gone.
I have decided to break up with Pinterest.
After a few months, the novelty has worn off.
I don’t like weddings or the fancy crap that goes with it, especially when the fancy crap is pinned by people who aren’t even in a relationship. I don’t care about fashion or what other people would wear if they could afford it. I’m ignorant of interior design and not interested in the mythical interiors of fictional houses of people I don’t even know in real life. I’m not into crafts, gardening, or children, so instructions for weaving a toddler’s shirt out of home-grown flax are wasted on me.
To be fair, I’ve found some very interesting recipes, makeup ideas, and funny/inspirational quotes via Pinterest. But it’s like panning for gold — there’s a lot more uninteresting dirt than there is gold dust, and it gets annoying after a while.
Pinterest is just another place for other people to post things that I don’t care about. And unlike Facebook, I can’t hide specific pins. So, as I said, I am breaking up with Pinterest. No hard feelings. We’ll still be in touch, since it’s good for stashing online pictures and ideas that I may use later. But if other people don’t like them or don’t want to repin them, I am physically and mentally incapable of caring any less than I do at this moment.
Are you on Pinterest? What’s your take?
