Pinterest Doesn’t Understand Me

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I recently joined Pinterest as myself. (Before I pinned as Whimseybox, but now that we have the awesome Rachel taking over community management I decided to stop torpedoing her efforts with inspiration for my dream home every 5 minutes.)

But here’s the thing- Pinterest must think I’m a guy. Do you remember the short setup process you do when you setup an account by choosing images you like? Well I don’t know what the hell I clicked, but for some reason Pinterest thinks I’m into:

1. Dinosaurs!?

5. Well-dressed men.

Ok, I’ll give you that one, Pinterest…

    You can unfollow these people by going to their accounts and clicking an almost invisible “unfollow”-button in the middle. I had the same problem at the beginning, but now I like my pinterest: It’s full of DIY, well dressed women and other things I like :)
