Did you ever wonder where Pinterest came from….Heaven? No, actually it was from the mind of Pinterest, CEO, Ben Silbermann. I have to admit I’m addicted…so my 58 boards, and 9,100 pins and 227 followers proves. It’s not the largest amount that honor goes to Jane Wang. With….drum roll please, 8,415,231 followers and 27,559 pins. I’m not kidding, I wish I had that kind of time, but as it turns out her son is a co-founder of Pinterest, now that’s a supportive Mom. I find it’s a really delicate balance of spending too much time on Pinterest and then not being able to try some of the things I pin. Ben states, “Our mission is not to keep you online, it’s to get you offline. Pinterest should inspire you to go out and do the things you love. “ I’m still working on that one Ben.
This was the first pin on Pinterest, no wonder we love it, ladies!
