Pinterest as an LOA Tool

A quick note about this post: I got the idea for it over a month ago and started it but hadn't got very far. I thought maybe it was a bit of a weird idea comparing Pinterest to LOA and maybe I should write about something else. I think I just have a lot of self doubt and thought it might not be a good idea for a post. But then the other day I came across this post which is a similar idea but with Instagram:

So I thought I might as well go ahead and write this post! lol. I haven't read the other one properly yet because I want to just write my own ideas first. :) I'm referring to the Law of Attraction aka LOA, which you can read more about here:

I'm a fan of Pinterest. If you haven't heard of it, it's a website where you "pin" pictures/images to boards you create. You can add them from other sites, upload your own or search for them on Pinterest itself and then add them to your boards. E.g. You could create a board of places you want to visit, recipes you'd like to make or your favourite films, music etc. It's also good for inspirational quotes and pictures. It can be very addictive! The site is described as "the world's catalog/ue of ideas". It's also classed as a social network because you follow other users and can comment on their pins and message them personally.

I was thinking recently that Pinterest reminds me of descriptions of the Law of Attraction, how what you focus on expands. Because when you pin something it leads you to more boards on those themes and recommends pins for you. So If I pin about the reality show Teen Mom, I'll get more Teen Mom pins recommended to me on the site itself or by email (Pinterest tells me I may like these pins based on a board I've created). So the more I pin, the more similar things it brings in!

Following others is another way that you find stuff you like. Their pins start showing up in your feed and so you have more to pin on the subjects you're interested in.

New Helpful Articles Library

I don't normally post on a Thursday but I've just created a Helpful Articles Library page, so I thought I'd do a quick post. It's a page of links to useful self help/persononal development and Law of Attraction links. Hope you enjoy it. :) Check it out it here or from the link on the right side of the blog:
