Good Ole Geeky Fun

Several things.

1) If you’re on Pinterest, would you leave a comment with the URL to your Pinterest page? You know, something like And if your Pinterest username really is Sassy McCutie, then you need to know that I am going to be your biggest fan. FOREVER.

2) If you’re on the Twitter, would you do the same thing with that whole leaving-your-link business?

3) I just think that it would be nice if we all knew how to find each other on the Twitter and the Pinterest. Unless you don’t want to be found, of course. So no pressure.

4) Don’t forget that there’s a bodycology rich&creamy giveaway going on until July 31st. The Purina ProPlan Selects giveaway ($100 Visa gift card) will be up and running until July 21st.

5) Remember a few weeks ago when I asked for your feedback about protecting our kids online? I am forever indebted to y’all for your help. I had so much good stuff to work with that I ended up writing an article that focused mostly on being mindful of our kids’ boundaries, especially as they get older. Hopefully I’ll be able to write another article down the line that focuses more on the safety issues. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate y’all taking the time to share your wisdom. Your comments were so helpful.

Have a great Thursday, everybody!

    I’m becoming more and more obsessed with Pinterest. It is a wonder :)


    Come visit anytime!

  15. I have nothing to add thats different then what everyone else said but it seemed rude to note say anything! :)

  16. I can’t remember my pintrest name, sadly. :(

  17. hey girl — it’s and same for twitter. Love pinterest but can’t figure out how to say it. Is it just pinterest or Pin – interest…. confused, as always

    I don’t know how I would find enough time in my life for another social networking site, but I have no doubt that within a few weeks I’ll be on pinterest. *sigh* I’m a bit of an internet junky.


    I would like to say I’m good at actually posting to Pinterest but that would be a lie. But I do love it!!

  25. Mama,

    I hold you somewhat responsible for this new affliction I have with the Pinterest. I will assume that you feel properly guilty?

  26. I’m already following you on Pinterest. Here’s mine: Just got started, so I don’t have much on it yet, but I could easily become addicted! And I feel “safe” to admit this here: I just. don’t. get. twitter. Someone explain it to me please… I’m all over Facebook like white on rice, but twitter…Is it just like a mini facebook? Oh, the technology! Somebody hold me…. :)


    Just like in real life, I tend to observe and read more than speak and share, but I love Pinterest and Twitter!

  28. Shannon Wilson says:

    A confession: I got an email from Pinterest this week that Big Mama started following my boards. I screamed out loud. I feel totally Pinterest-validated now. BooMama, if you start following my boards, you will hear an equally loud scream all the way in Alabama. :)

  29. Just remember – my boards are still a work in progress as I just joined last week!

  30. Hi – can’t wait to see what all you pin. I’m at

  31. I think you already follow me on Pinterest, but if not, here it is:

    On you definitely don’t follow me on Twitter, although I would love it if you would. I should warn you that I talk about TV a LOT…specifically Law and Order: SVU and, more recently, Rookie Blue. Anyway, here’s that”!/MaryKC

    Also, I need to recommend this Pinterest pinner to you:

    if you don’t yet follow her, and ESPECIALLY her board “Girls with Pearls” which is all about the South.

    I love geekiness and plan to follow the people who left their URLs here as well!


    Can’t wait to go look at all the new pins from new pin-friends!

    Or should I say Pin Pals? *rimshot* :)

  33. Pinterest-

    Just started following your boards :)

  34. HUH?? Could someone please explain pinterest in very simple words? Some of us are sooooo far behind.

    • Terry,
      I’ve just discovered it. But apparently it is a Social Network where you “pin” stuff you like on the web to “boards”. I have not yet signed up or signed on or whatever. I’ve just lurked around at all the favs and it is interesting. Anything from food, to fashion to decorating.

      My apologies if you have a zillion replies to this. I haven’t clicked the next page of comments.

  35. Just started Pinterest — had to wait on an invite. :) Can’t wait to pin all of you!

  36. Melanie says:

    I just started my pintrest and I think I broke it. Oh no.

  37. This is a sweet idea! I’ve been looking for new boards to follow on Pinterest. I can’t get down with tweeting … Twitter reminds me of sitting in a high school cafeteria and hearing a thousand conversations happening that I wasn’t part of (…issues? :). I don’t understand Twitter. Also, I’m too wordy for The Tweets. But I love to pin!

    • Dear Sweet Natalie, you summed up twitter PERFECTLY! While I’m on it, I have never felt like I was in the loop. I felt like I was staring in on other people and they didn’t know I was there gawking at them. I would pipe in on occasion but felt like an outsider. And YES, I am TOO wordy for twitter. Thus, facebook. And a blog. That I don’t keep up enough.


    Pardon my dust, I’m new there :)

  39. The Twitter:
    The Pinterest:

    I’m SOOO original with my usernames. My board names are equally unclever.


    I’ve been reading your blog for…well forever it seems! You make me laugh on a daily basis, and I am SO thankful for that!

  41. and!/meltonbritt :) :)


    I’ve been reading your blog for…forever! You make me laugh on a daily basis and I am SO thankful for that!

  43. I just started my Pinterest so I haven’t put anything on it yet, but REST ASSURED that it will be filled to overflowing before too long. This is so up my alley.

  44. Charlotte says:
  45. I have big plans to join Pinterest (and Google+) in September.


  46. I’m not quite on pinterest yet but I don’t feel like i can hold off that much longer :)

    Till then, you can find me at

    :) Love you BooMama!

  47. Another Sarah says:
    I think I’ve finally quit calling this “pin-to-rest-on”

  48. Kimberly Sheppard says:

    What a great idea! I have read your blog for a few years, and just LOVE it! I live in the Birmingham area, and think it is so neat that I often know places you blog about…(Chuy’s, etc). I so appreciate your sweet servant heart, and love for Jesus…Thanks for sharing your journey, and making so many smile along the way.

    Anyway…here is my info.


    I don’t currently remember my Pinterest profile, but you follow me.

  50. oh how exciting….so many more people to follow and Pin!!!! woo weee hoooo!!!!

  51. My twitter info is :!/BetzSmith

    I follow you already.

    Ima skeered of pinterest. I don’t think I am hip enough.

  52. Shannon H says:

    Sparked by your post yesterday (and a few others), I just joined pinterest this morning.


  54. Julie in Texas says:

    Okay – I am trying REALLY HARD to understand Pinterest. I have an account, but am still baffled. Thank God it is summer and I can spend umpteen hours wasting time like this.

    2. Listened to the latest podcast. a.) Thank you for the whole ‘accent’ thing. Only mine is in reverse. I open my mouth here in Texas, and people automtically say “So, are you from Minnesota, Iowa…?’ Nothin’ like a big red flag that says “YANKEE!!” b.) I am much comforted by the fact that you & Melanie are angry (or maybe just Melanie) in September when it is still BLAZING hot, and Bath & Body Works has harvest-falling leaf-pumkin scented candles.

    I don’t even know my Pinterest URL, but will leave it when I figure it out : )

  55. Carol N. says:

    Can’t wait to get home and follow these!

  56. Weekend project, check out Pinterest.

    Twitter: themommylogues

  57. I’m sorry. I left the wrong link to my pinterest page.

  58. Melissa says:
  59. I’m thingspondered on both. :)


    I have a board where I’m trying to pin locations that would be fun for a girlfriend roadtrip from Lubbock, TX. We are located close to exactly nothing. So if anyone has ideas….?


    YAY for new friends on pinterest and twitter (although I must admit I’m a MUCH BETTER pinner than tweeter!!)

  62. Still haven’t fully grasped the whole “what’s the point of Pinterest” deal, but something not having a valid point has never stopped me from participating before. Example? FruitNinja.

    So here’s my details.

  63. Oh, the pinterest. I am hooked.

  64. I completely can’t figure out the Pinterest. I also am so impressed at y’all’s little links to the Twitter. I have no idea how to do that, so I’ll just post my Twitter name, which is @WendyBrz.

  65. The cool kids just invited me over this morning so I’m busy pinning away and not working! ;-) Yayyyy! (I’m totally blaming you, Sophie, for all the enabling of my new addiction! Heee!)
