Tell me about Pinterest?
I hear everyone talking about this site all the sudden. Is it good for promotion? I popped over there but didn't see the appeal. What am I missing?
It's a bookmarking site that focuses on images. You "pin" images that you find around the web. It's too new to say how much traffic it could bring.
There is some murky legal business with how Pinterest attributes images that people pin. It makes it very easy for people to rip off copyrighted images, though, arguably, it's very easy to steal images from the web without pinterest (print screen).

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating.

I have been pinning my Hubs on Pinterest for a few months now, and about 70 of my Hubs are now pinned. I have also had several of my pins to Hubs shared by others on Pinterest. Despite all of this, I do not have one single click from Pinterest showing up in my HubPages traffic...
