I love Pinterest. I have tons and tons of pins. But what if say tomorrow, you logged on and there was only a single page saying “Sorry but due to events beyond our control our site is no more” ? What about all those great ideas you pinned? All the time spent pinning? I will share with you what I do.
When I pin something, I click through to the original website from where the idea originated. If I can’t click through then I try and find it by searching. Then I pin from that website. I also use Evernote to clip the original article from the website. I have downloaded the Evernote add-on for my browser so I can clip articles to my Evernote. This way should Pinterest ever “disappear” I will still have all of my links to the great ideas I have discovered. I suppose the next step is to figure out a way to either print them or store them on a drive locally.
