Beyond "girly" pinboards showcasing the latest fashion trends, there's a silly side to Pinterest, which has taken a few notes from the Internet's silliest platform, Tumblr. Specifically, we're talking the art of the single-serving site -- Tumblr's mark on the Internet. Thanks to its easy-to-use, easy-to-view format, Tumblr has birthed this beautiful genre, which provides a Tumblr for every meme and new Tumblrs for all of its meme offspring.
Now, as Pinterest grows, attracting more than just Midwestern wives-to-be, the network's getting the same single-serving treatment.
Easier to use and prettier to view than Tumblr, Pinterest makes an even better venue for creating and viewing these kind of sites. To be clear: we mean sites that have a single theme. Like: Kim Jong Il looking at things or Downton Abbey scenes described with Beyoncé lyrics. Pinterest, too, can act as a home for these memes, as The New York Times' Kevin Roose shows via his two single-serving Pinboard creations: Traders With Two Phones (pictured above) and Warren Buffett Doing Folksy Things. Unlike our favorite single-serving Tumblrs, which often involve lots of scrolling due to Tumblr's blog-roll design, Pinterest lays it all out on one neat page. And with the "pin it" bookmark button, making one of these is easy-peasy.
