Confession: I am an unapologetic Pinterest addict.
I easily spend more than five hours on Pinterest every week. For a social network that has very little conversation and actual engagement between readers, Pinterest is highly popular. It is perhaps the lack of chatter that actually attracts a huge number of users. Compared to Twitter and Facebook, Pinterest is super quiet and requires very little community participation. There is hardly any doubt that visuals are a better story telling tool so Pinterest is highly effective in its simplicity.
My favorite thing about Pinterest is that it allows me to collate all my interests on one site and at the same time makes it super easy to filter the content I want.
For my fellow Pinterest addicts I have curated a list of must-follow Pinterest accounts for the visual lover in you. Most of these Pinners are focused on design but they do share some pretty amazing interest-focused boards ranging from lifestyle, food, DIY to beauty, branding and travel.
First up is the wonderfully joyful Joy Cho of Oh Joy! This incredible designer, blogger and food enthusiast balances lifestyle and design on her Pinterest account - Her pins are a never ending source of inspiration!

Second is the talented Kayla Meyer of Owl You Need Is Love! This graphic designer has a great selection of design and branding related boards that any aspiring designer will love!

Third, I have Niki Blaker! This art director is heavily focused on design from typography to interior and illustrations.

Fourth, lets look at Paula Cevasco. This graphic designer and creative mind pins pretty much everything so I had no idea where to start!

On the fifth spot we have Sneh Roy. This Indian-Australian blogger at Cook Republic is not just an amazing food photographer but she is also a designer and cook! Her Pinterest is diverse and the Indian food board is sure to make your mouth water.

At number six I have designer, Charlene Koh. Her Pinterest boards are a reflection of her clean and minimalist style.

Narrowing down a list of my favorite Pinners is almost as hard as narrowing down my list of favorite authors. So I couldn't help but include a few more Pinterest accounts that I adore.
Are you an avid Pinner? How much time do you spend on the black hole that is Pinterest?
