I've been experimenting with Pinterest and Flipboard, as ways to collect, save and share visual inspiration. As with any type of social media it's a struggle to not fall into the rabbit hole and let time slip away as you browse and interact.
Different types of material seem to fit better for different spaces. Pinterest is the place for images and Flipboard is the space for articles and reading. For example, my Flipboard magazine for Patterns & Textures is beginning to gather dust, because I very rarely come across articles on the topic, and so I've decided to end the project.
Instead I've started a new magazine, where I gather bits and pieces of personal inspiration. Take a look at Creative Spark: inspiration, ideas and process.
