Pinterest and Other Sites for Organizing Life Online

Pinterest LogoAre you a cyberhoarder? I just discovered this term today, but I already love it. I realize that this is the digital version of my stacks of pages ripped out of magazines that drive my husband crazy in our home. As someone who’s always trying to be more and more organized, preparing for an upcoming program at the library (Make Your Life Pinteresting, December 4 at 4:30 p.m.) has given me new tools to be a better cyberhoarder. Hey, at least it’s better for the environment, and maybe it will also help me get rid of those paper piles my husband is always threatening to pitch!

I can’t decide which of the sites I like best, so here are my favorites, in no particular order.  Come to the class for more information (and a nifty handout) about Pinterest and other social media sites. Don’t get me wrong–I do still like Pinterest, but I also want to highlight some sites that have less public awareness.

1.  Clipix.  This site has tons of features–as many private boards as you want, multiboards (more than one board combined), price drop alerts (handy for holiday season shopping), mobile functions and a great looking, clean interface.

2.  Clipboard.  This site lets you select the part of a webpage you want to keep.  This feature is awesome if you only want to keep a one-sentence quote or a paragraph or two of a long document. Clipboard also lets you keep as much of the information private as you wish but also allows you to share the information with the world or just one person.

3.  Springpad. Organize your information into notebooks of your own creation, which can be public or private. In each notebook, you can make notes and lists, link to websites, add recipes, products, books, music, videos, photos and more. You can set alarms for yourself and even make wine lists. A little something for everyone!

Join us on Tuesday, December 4 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Columbia Public Library for our class Make Your Life Pinteresting. Register now by calling (573) 443-3161.
