New Pinterest Board for Catholic Blogs


When I remodeled my kitchen, I had the builder install two vertical filing cabinets on either side of my built-in desk.  I loved them – at first.  Within months (okay, weeks), they were jam-packed with papers – regardless of how many folders I put in and labeled, I still seem to end up sifting through paper after paper trying to find what I need.  It is frustrating, time consuming, and on more occasions than I wish to remember – completely unsuccessful.

This is how I feel about bookmarking websites and ‘web-finds’ on my web browser (which is Google Chrome more often than not these days).  I set up folders and try to keep my links organized but inevitably I lose whatever article, blog, or image I filed so carefully away for later use.  Enter Pinterest – which I have decided is the finest internet filing system ever created!

Last year, I created the Uplifting Media board, to solve my issue of remembering where I hid the links my favorite podcasts, television shows, movies, and magazines.

To launch 2014, I am working on collecting links to Catholic Blogs. While, as I have mentioned before, I do not even like the word, “blog”, I have come to realize and appreciate the value and power of creating, reading, and sharing blog content in the work of evangelization and catechesis.   There are so many wonderful blogs to select from – just take a stroll at the Contributors!

Visit my new Pinterest Catholic Blogs board to start exploring today – and come back often, as I am adding new pins every day.   In particular, I am visiting the new Daily Gospel Reflection column, and adding each reflection writer (those who have blogs) — after I do my Gospel reading and reflection for the day!

  1. Allison, I think this is a fabulous idea! I love Pinterest, but I honestly had not thought about using it to file/organize … I guess that’s what the boards are for, but I have not made one to organize online content that I want to save. I, too, have file-cabinet drawers in my kitchen desk, and I do not like them at all! We’ve lived here 3 years, and I don’t even have a file folder in them. They are a catch-all, and they drive me nuts!! Likewise, I try to set up folders on my computer to file things, but once something is out of sight, it’s out of mind, too! I will have to try the visual filing of Pinterest to organize. Thanks for the idea!

    • Thanks Sarah!! I still haven’t mastered Pinterest’s search feature but for the most part I do find the visual filing of things on Pinterest much easier to locate again later :))) So happy the idea helps you!

  2. Very helpful. Thanks Allison. I plan to share this with the LinkedIn group for the Assoc of Catholics Exploring Social Media!

      Cool Hugh!! LinkedIn is my next frontier to figure out. I am on it – but I know it has much more potential then I’ve found for it. Thank you again for your comment, glad it helped!!!
