New Pinterest

Don’t panic. The outdoor wedding ideas and stuffed French toast recipes are safe!

In January, Pinterest asked a group of Pinners (I know; they didn’t ask me either!) to test out a new look they designed to “make discovering things on Pinterest easier.” After analyzing their feedback, it seems they’ve made some changes that they’re getting ready to launch; in fact, they’ve already started sharing the new look with a select few. The goal of the update is to provide users with new discovery features and a simpler, cleaner design. Personally, I just want the search box to recognize my typos instead of telling me that there are no search results for “spring home defor,” but that’s just me. Now, I know we all hate it when our most frequently used sites go changing their looks on us; but before you go getting your craft supply box all in a bunch, I’ll give it to you short and sweet. It’s not that different—or at least, not different enough that you’ll be bitching about in your Facebook status. In a nutshell, here’s the lowdown on what you’ll find.

New discovery features:

In the hopes of making four hours of your eight-hour workday trolling Pinterest easier, they’ve added a few new things to the close-up view of pins. This includes pins from the same board, pins from the same source, and a section called “People who pinned this also pinned.” That’s pretty cool. It will help you see other stuff you really want to make, but probably never will—i.e., DIY wainscoting your entire staircase with picture frames and painting the risers with a homemade chevron stencil! But seriously, it’s actually a really helpful feature.

Bigger pins:

They’ve cut out the borders, so your pins will appear larger than they did before. This is great for people who look at desserts all day—and for those Workout Inspiration boards you’ve got going to counteract the desserts.

Same grid design:

Happily, Pinterest has kept the same grid design it’s always had, which means the whole system should work and feel better without you even notiving or having to learn any new skills (because goodness knows, learning how to make an eighteen layer ombre cake is hard enough!).

So you see, it’s really not that different. I can only assume the idea is for Pinterest to work more efficiently for us so that we spend more time on the site. Maybe I really CAN make my own laundry detergent with baking soda and lemons. And that waterfall braid would look so good on me… ooh, and there’s a tutorial, too! Be right back, Bettys—things to do, projects to ooze over and all that.

Happy Pinning!

    I've been dating my boyfriend for six years. Last night he broke up with me. This is how it all started. I have this guy that's in my english class and me and him always take the train together but me and him are just friends. I don't have any feelings for this guy. I look at him as a friend only. I always tell my boyfriend everything that's going on with me. He know that this guy is just a friend. But lately me and my boyfriend have been fighting a lot because I think he's cheating on me. Every time I call his house phone the line is always busy so I know that he's talking to someone else. But when I ask him who was he talking to when he calls me he's says his guy friend. I think he's lying because you don't talk to your guy friend for an hour. When I ask him is he cheating on me he tells me no that he loves me a lot. But I believe that he is talking to someone else on the phone. This friday was bad I called him and the line was busy. He was talking to someone for an hour and thirty minutes. When he finally called me I asked him who was he speaking to he said his friend once again. But later when we started arguing he told that was speaking to a girl that his friend hook him up with, and they've been talking for two weeks now. I was so shock by this news, because he's been lying to me all this time telling me he's talking to his friend. He's always preaching about telling the true and being honest and look what he goes and do. When I asked him why is he doing this he told me why am I taking the train with that guy when I know has feeling for me. I don't like this guy me and him are just friends. When I am with this guy all I do is talk about my boyfriend and school work. Last night me and my boyfriend had argument. I asked him if he's cheating on me and he said no that he loves. We kept fighting on the phone and he told me that he wants to get off the phone and he'll call me when he wants to talk. But I didn't listen and I kept calling him every two second and he broke up with me. He told me that he needs his space. We always fight and breakup and then get back together because we can't stand to be away from each other. But this time I don't know what he's thinking. When I got off the phone with him when he broke up with me I knew he didn't want to speak to me so I had my cousin call him to let him know that I love him and I don't want to lose him but I don't think he wanted to hear it and became annoyed by the calls. All he said to my cousin was thank you for the message and I have to go. What should I do he says that he doesn't want to be with be with me and also he doesn't want to be my friend because I keeping bothering him and he needs his space. I love him so much and I don't want to lose him. I don't want this girl to take my man away from me. Should I give him his space and see if calls me within a week. We always talk on the phone everyday so it's very hard for me not to call him. But I think calling him would just make him upset even more. Someone please tell me what I should do? I love my boyfriend I don't want to lose him over something little. Help Me!
