Pinterest/Springpad

I know a number of people on DC are already on Pinterest, but is anyone on Springpad?

I just joined springpad yesterday and am finding it a million times better than Pinterest even though they are very similar in many ways.

What I really like about Springboard is that you can share your stuff with everyone, no one, or selected people. So for something like Discusscooking someone could make a Springpad board for recipes and then add DC members who would like to contribute and it would be like our own private collaborative recipe collection.

It is not limited to recipes though. You can use it as a personal organizer. It is kind of hard to explain until you start playing with it and it does take a little more time than Pinterest to set up, but only because it has more options which is a very good thing.

Check it out at Springpad.

Here is the link to the DC Cookbook that I created.

DC on Springpad

By the way, I am making the rock candy from my link with my kids this weekend. They have been looking forward to this all week.

I just signed up GB, and it looks like lots of fun! I think I'm your first follower!

Now I just need to figure out how to use it.

Awesome Kayelle! I am having a blast on here so far. If you want to be able to add things to the DC board then PM me your email address and I will add you. Same goes for anyone else who would like to be able to add things to the DC board.

Awesome, I will get you set up right away.

And for anyone interested or a little confused about what Springpad is and how you can use it I just came across this great video. It is a half an hour long. I have only watched the first 2 minutes of it so far, but I saw enough to know it is well worth it to share here. It is an interview with the CEO and co-founder (I think) and he uses cooking and recipes as his examples.

And I don't know how, but one of my notebooks (Ideas To Remember) made it onto their Spotlight which means it is on the very first page when you go to "Explore" to find other things on Springpad. My inbox has not stopped dinging all day because I am getting a notification every time someone follows my notebook. Right now I have gone from 0 to about 280 in 10 hours.

Sounds interesting. I'll have to look into this when income tax season is sort of over in May.

Yikes! I haven't even mastered Pinterest yet! Obviously, I must sign up for this! Will look for the iPad app.

Thanks, GB!
