StyleCaster: When did you join Pinterest, and what exactly made you originally decide to join Pinterest?
Katie Evans: I signed up for an account two years ago. I wanted to join because I was tired of my unorganized ways of saving inspiration in random folders on my desktop. I wanted it all in one place where I could access it from any computer and know where it came from.
SC: What area(s) on Pinterest would you say is your specialty?
KE: I’m currently planning my wedding so everything from decorations, design and food — I’m all over it.
SC: Is there an image (pin) that you are just sick of seeing over and over?
KE: The exercise/motivational ones — I use Pinterest to be inspired visually, not physically.
SC: What do you find people are pinning most from your blog and/or pin account?
SC: How do you feel Pinterest most differs from other social media platforms – pros/cons? Which other social networks are you on (please send me your corresponding links)?
KE: It’s different because it’s a visual way of sharing and organizing information vs a 140 character thought. In addition to Pinterest I’m on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram (evans_katie) and Etsy. I can’t keep up with anything else at the moment.
SC: How does using Pinterest affect, influence or inspire your work and/or style?
KE: I’ve been exposed to a lot of artists I never would’ve seen, as well as clothes that I shouldn’t have seen.
SC: Please provide links to 5 of your favorite pinners.
SC: If you could give one piece of advice to a new user on Pinterest what would that be?
KE: Give credit to the photographer/designer/illustrator/art director.
