Constructive Distraction: Pintester

Procrastination doesn't have to be a total waste of time. This monthly post highlights websites to make your time avoiding research papers and textbooks productive.

Happy Labor Day, ladies and lads! I hope you're kicking back and enjoying the last, unofficial weekend of summer. Take this extra day to relax and recharge before getting back, or starting, the school-year grind.
Pinterest in the newest member to the social-networking family. The invite-only site was slow to start, but once it was rolling, there was stopping it. It's so popular it's spawned spin-off blogs.

My favorite is Pintester.

The sites tagline is "Fucking up Pinterest pins so you don't have to." The blog author, self-proclaimed "Pintester," tests a variety of pins with varying degrees of success. Most of the time, her pin-test utterly unsuccessful, but occasionally, they turn out not so bad.

This blog not only saves time, but it gives laughs. Pintester writes step-by-step, tried-and-true posts detailing her testings. She says everything you know you would if you were in her shoes.

So before you run to the store to collect the ingredients or supplies to try a pin, check out Pintester.

Until next time...
