I’ve mentioned it before, Pinterest is fast becoming the new landscape of Hot-Mess-Dome.
From the spammy “drink this to lose 10-pounds in the blink of an eye, to people fighting over recipes being named “crack”, people are now just dropping whatever they feel like onto a post.
I came across a “pin” for two things I love: crab cakes and using my air fryer. Apparently, this person just wanted to reach the crab-cake-devouring-air-fryer-master niche.
I get it. You’re trying to spread the word about your whatever. I love to reach as many people as possible and share the Crack Wise love. But know your time and space.
Let’s move on to this gem.
There’s nothing better than when some random posts a picture—without explanation—in conjunction with a recipe. Sure, you can add a photo or comment—about the recipe, but many times you get a mystery.
I thought this recipe was right up my alley. Yums!
But Barbrielle posted this pic as a response.
Does this mean she tried the recipe and it made her hair stand up? Or is she showing us her hair looks like spaghetti?
I’m torn. I want people to Pinterest responsible. But I love the fodder.
