Industrial Lighting on Hometalk

Recently, I joined a site called Hometalk, at the recommendation of one of my lovely commenters.  

At first, I didn't really get on, but lately have rekindled an interest in the site.  The best way I can describe it is a Pinterest that is mainly for home and diy projects, and instead of only one image with a short description, you can look at a mini-blog post with an overview of the project.
It is helpful to viewers since we all know how annoying it is to click on a pin and once you get to the site, the creator of the post actually mislead you to think the post was about something else.  This way, you can know more about the project before ever clicking the poster's link.

It is also helpful for bloggers, since we can share more of the specifics of our projects, and to a more specific set of readers.  The Hometalk community feels significantly smaller than Pinterest, which allows you to actually interact more with other users.  Unlike Pinterest, clicking a clip takes you back to the original post, so you can always connect with the writer of the content.  Just like you can comment on a blog post, it is typical in the Hometalk culture to comment on others' projects.
I've posted some of my DIY projects first posted here at Let's Drink Coffee, Darling and was contacted by one of the community managers to curate a board within the same genre as my DIY Industrial Cage Lamps.  There were so many great DIY projects for industrial lighting on Hometalk, so I'd encourage you to head over and check out the board!   And if you're also a DIY blogger, it may be worthwhile for you to consider posting some of your projects as well!
Check out some of the features from my Industrial Lighting clipboard!

Maybe I'll see you there, don't forget to connect with me on Hometalk if you have an account!
