How to Search Pinterest

You’ve decided it’s time for Grandma to leave the 20th century and to step into the 21st, computer-savvy, information age.  You will be amazed at the wealth of information that can enrich your everyday life.  One of my favorite resources for my various interests is Pinterest.

After signing up for this treasure trove of ideas (see previous post), https://eternallyyoursblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/08/how-to-sign-up-for-pinterest/?preview_id=86&preview_nonce=aa4b2e3fa6&post_format=standard&preview=true you will be presented with a page of colorful pins on topics that you choose.  You can pin any of those presented by moving your computer mouse over the pin and clicking on the “pin it” icon.  However, if you are looking for a particular subject, move your cursor to the top of the page to the space that says “Search.” Click in the search bar and type in the topic that you want to pursue.  For Christmas I did very specific searches for my grandchildren like:  “most popular gifts for 11 year old girls,” “how to make lip balm,” and “Mindware catalog.”  The resulting searches gave Mrs. Claus all kinds of advice and “how to” instructions for great Christmas gifts for Grandma’s pride and joys.  Have fun!
