I went to Austin, Texas, last month for a data journalism geek unconference. The first night we had dinner at Stubbs BBQ, and my dinner companion was Lauren Young, owner of Little Lamb web design (she’s currently redesigning this site). She started talking about how much fun she was having with Pinterest. For the uninitiated, check out this article in the Wall Street Journal profiling the website.
I love using Pinterest to show off many things, but my favorites are my aviation and travel boards. The first board I created was one with pictures of my beloved Boeing 747, which has 101 followers. My next board was Cool Aircraft Liveries, which has photos of some of the best aircraft paint jobs of the present and past, with 97 followers. I work across the street from Frederick Municipal Airport, so I created Seen At Frederick Airport (FDK).
I am a BIG fan of art deco airline/travel posters, and have them hanging in my home and office. My Art Deco Travel Posters has 92 followers. I created a board made up entirely of the graphics I use for my Strange But True Aviation News column. And then I have boards entitled Lord, I Was Born A Ramblin’ (wo)Man and Places I REALLY Want To See, with 94 followers each.
Tomorrow’s post will be on 10 folks you should be following on Pinterest. Not on Pinterest yet? Drop me an email at AuntBenet AT Gmail DOT com and I’ll get you an invite. Enjoy!
