At the moment Pinterest. But I am sure I will swing back once I get it more organized. The problem with Pinterest is that unless someone pins it you can't see it whereas with blogs you can follow those whose styles/blogging you particularly like or that inspire you.

Both have their uses.

These days it's Pinterest. But I'm also not really stamping until our home is done and I once again have a stamp room. But I do find a lot of projects being pinned so I actually find bloggers I wouldn't have otherwise!

I use Pinterest to mark the blog post that I want to find to either case the card or try the tutorial. I try to be very careful when I am pinning or re-pinning to make sure the link is to the original post and not just the blog. I have my favourite blogs in google reader, but will still pin a single blog post to find it easier. Still have to re-organize my Pinterest boards so they are simpler to find things lol
The other tool I find I am using is Evernote

TBH, neither. I follow a few specific crafting blogs but mostly just those of cyber-friends. Some of the other ones in my feed are photo-journals, news feeds,wildlife links and so on. I find almost all the inspiration I need here, and it keeps my online time in control.
Not saying I wouldn't be inspired by more of the fabulous stuff out there, of course I would; but there are only so many hours in the day, and I have other time commitments.
I would have liked to try Pinterest but I am not going to sign up to either Facebook or Twitter solely to set up a Pinterest account.

Probably both, I love my Pinterests, and I have a fat healthy RSS feed (Google Reader) and get feeds through that, I am always adding more, and removing some. I enjoy facebook for keeping up with my non crafty interests and family members. I think the whole concepts are mad and so much fun. I get inspiration from lots of places...that is what it is about... I love my grandkids...

I sign in without using facebook or twitter. I have a facebook account, but, rarely use it. I would try and sign up and see if it is a necessary requirement.

I still use my google reader for blogging; and check in for the folders that I have marked daily challenges. I refer to it on a regular daily basis; where pinterest is when I'm bored and need a break in the routine. I use pinterest as a visual reminder of interesting items.

I may be totally out of it, but I don't do either. Both seem like huge time wasters to me. I will once in a while visit a blog if it's linked from somewhere, but use the galleries here for my card inspiration.

I visit blogs every day for my stampy inspiration.

On Pinterest I'm never looking at stamping/crafting stuff, I like the fashion/style, etc posts there...I'm sort of going there to get away from my stamping side, lol.

If you want to see the Pins previously made, click 'Everything' (it's under the Pinterest logo at the top of the page). Then click the category of Pins you'd like to see...DIY and Crafts has a ton of paper crafts.

If you'd like to go to a site that has been pinned, click their name on the Pin screen with their project (it'll be off to the right, above the picture of the project). You can do the same to see what other Pins an individual has made by clicking their name at the top left of that screen too.

You also can do a Search for either topics or individuals, using the Search bar at the top left of Pinterest Home Page.

Do it all the time.

Personally I "Like" and then if the links aren't good they don't go on my boards. If the links are good they go on my board - either way I un-"like" to clear that part of the board.

I have, twice . Once with an invite direct from Pinterest and once with one from Lydia. After you have an account you can sign in any way you like, but to set up your account in the first place you must use either FB or Twitter. They say it's to make it easier to connect with people you know, and to reduce spam. I can understand the first (though not why it's required), but with all the number of people who have either a Twitter or FB account I really can't believe that it reduces spam at all.

never seen Pinterest until I noticed in my blog stats that someone had visited me from there. Anyway i took a look and I was surprised at how much there is too look at. I spent well over an hour!!

I was even more surprised to find that some of my cards had been pinned and repinned dozens of times!! And I had no idea lol.
