It's true! I'm soooo addicted to Pinterest. I check it constantly and cannot wait til they launch their iPhone app. Google Reader used to fill my desire to quickly consume web content tailored to my tastes but it's definitely coming in second lately. I am a bit of a bookmark hoarder though. I star the heck out my Google Reader feed and I use Xmarks so I can bookmark everywhere. There's no surprise that I love Pinterest. I really like being able to visually collect the little bits of inspiration from all over the web.
Pinterest is a visual bookmarking site with the idea of a pin board behind it. Imagine creating an inspiration board of recipes to try, crafts to make, decorating ideas, or a subject you are researching. It is like clipping newspaper and magazine articles minus the paper clutter! And if that isn't great enough from an organizational stand-point, you can also scroll through everybody else's pins for even more inspiration. The Everything, DIY and Kids categories are my go-tos for browsing.
You can create "boards" of your own, apply tags, like "pins", search and follow other people's boards. It seems like lot of bloggers that I read are starting to use it so some familiar names are popping up and you can also search for your personal friends. Personally, I've talked my sister and her fiancé into using it and am trying to get my Mom on board. (Megan's another story...she doesn't bookmark! Ack!)
The downside is that it's still by invitation only. Also, the site also has a tendency to get really slow at times and some of their features are still being developed. I chalk it up as a work in progress and hit refresh a few times.
Here is my profile, if you are interested. (Wow, we are getting so personal here! Sharing bookmarks!). I have to go surf Pinterest now...
