Just a quick update today to draw your attention to a social media thingy I’ve put together. I’ve been playing around with Pinterest. For the uninitiated Wikipedia offers a pretty good description:

Pinterest is a free website that requires registration to use. Users can upload, save, sort, and manage images—known as pins—and other media content (e.g., videos and images) through collections known as pinboards. Pinterest acts as a personalised media platform. Users can browse the content of others on the main page. Users can then save individual pins to one of their own boards using the “Pin It” button, with Pinboards typically organised by a central topic or theme. Users can personalise their experience with Pinterest by pinning items, creating boards, and interacting with other members. By doing so, the users “pin feed” displays unique, personalised results.

Whilst creating some boards on my profile I decided to create one specifically for Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia; this would draw the numerous graphics and information that you can find around the web on CML, together. So here it is:


It only has 12 pins so far but they are pretty good and CML specific. If you have a graphic or know of one that you think would be appropriate or useful please contact me via this blog and we’ll arrange to pin it.

I hope that this becomes a useful resource, feedback is always appreciated. Thanks, Kris
