How to Sign up for Pinterest

Pinterest is a social media bulletin board that allows members to explore various interests from the everyday tasks of cooking and gardening to the more exotic trends in fashion or travel. It is a goldmine of tips, techniques, and ideas for the inquisitive mind.


The process of joining Pinterest is relatively simple if you are connected to the internet and have an email address or a Facebook account.  You are five steps from enjoying the world of Pinterest.

  1.  Type into your web browser.
  2.  The sign-up page will appear and ask if you want to sign-up with your email address or your Facebook account.  Type in the address of your choice and then create a password that will allow you to access your account.
  3. Fill out the form following your password creation with your name, age and gender.
  4. Click on box at bottom of page that says, “Come on in.”  At this point Pinterest will display a number of pictures representing interests and ask that you check at least five subjects which will become your pinterest boards.  You can choose more than five.  Clicking on these topic selections will open hundreds of “pins” on the “interest” that you are pursuing.
  5. Finally, you might like to add the “Pinterest button” to your web browser so that you can pin pictures, articles or websites to your pinterest account.

Happy pinning!

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
