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.
As easy and pretty as these sites are, the Tumblrification process hasn't reached completion quite yet. Beyond Roose's creations, we didn't find any other cheeky single-serving sites, like the ones we would browse on Tumblr, probably because each pinboard is pretty much a single-serving site without the jokey conceit. And, some of them look very Tumblr-esque. Take this deluge of Ryan Gosling boards. So focused! Yet none of them has the specificity as, say, Silicon Valley Ryan Gosling. But with Roose's boards as examples, we bet those will come along in no time. HeyGirl, start pinning.
Update 5:15 p.m.: The Tumblrization has spread! We discovered a single-serving site from someone other than Roose. Celebrities Surprised at Awards Shows! brought to us by The Wall Street Journal's Katie Rosman. It's happening.
