Pinterest update

Thanks very much to all of you who've started following me on Pinterest or viewing my pinboards.  I'm having fun with Pinterest so far.  You can see my pinboards by clicking on the image below:

Follow Me on Pinterest

I have gone through all 3 1/2 years worth of my old blog posts (a time-consuming job which took the better part of a week to finish!) and pinned all the photos that seemed relevant.  I think I've got them all now, more or less.  I've collected more than 200 images so far, and I spent some time this weekend subdividing them into categories, to make the pictures easier to find.

Outlandish Observations - this is the main pinboard, for pictures relating to me, my blog, Diana's books, and OUTLANDER fandom in general.

OUTLANDER: Places
OUTLANDER: Historical Figures
OUTLANDER: Flora and Fauna
OUTLANDER: Standing Stones
OUTLANDER: Men in Kilts
OUTLANDER: Gemstones
OUTLANDER: Objects
OUTLANDER: Food and Drink
18th Century Clothing

I might add more categories later (for example, I'd like to create a pinboard for photos of Scotland), but for now, I'm satisfied with the way it's set up.

Feel free to look around and repin any of these photos for yourselves.  Hope you enjoy them!

You've gotten me hooked, Karen!
Just a question - as soon as I signed in, it said I was following 16 friends. So why, now, do I still get emails asking if I want to follow so and so? I thought I was already following them?

Also, does pinning all the images from the blog lead viewers to the blog posts in which those images are embedded? If it does, I'll definitely do what you did and try to pin them all!

Deniz - well, keep in mind I only started using Pinterest about two weeks ago. :-) So I don't know much more about how it works than you do. But the answer to your second question is yes. Have fun with it!
