We (Still) Love Pinterest!

Forgive us for only joining Pinterest now! I (Hellen) have been a Pinterest fan & member since the phenomenon launched in 2010 (follow me here). We couldn’t believe somebody actually heard our secret wish for online pinboard! With the birth of Pinterest, I dun have to squeeze my memory of where did I see that cute boutonniere, because I already pinned it on my Pinterest board!

Sharing little facts about this wonderful tools:

In nine months, Pinterest reached 10,000 users (I’m proud to be the earlier batch!), now by 1 January 2012 they had 20 million unique users! Ben Silbermann (the founder & creator) net worth is 100 million dollar! And he is my age! (I have no problem revealing my age, but you have to google that..) Apparently, the beautiful site of Pinterest was created by 3 techy guys. I always know geeks will be the new cool, that’s why I married one. Haha!

Quite an amazing turn of event by the guy who was denied an appointment by some New-York magazine publishing company, for early investment.

On 17 May 2012, Japanese electronic commerce company Rakuten announced it was leading a $100 million investment in Pinterest, alongside investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer Venture Partners, and FirstMark Capital, based on a valuation of $1.5 billion.

Eat your heart out, some random New-York magazine publishing company.

I love an underdog story. Well, everybody loves an underdog story.
