The 25 Year Switch is now on Pinterest! I have created the page to allow for easier access to previous blog posts. This will also make it easier for you to find date night activities or to find a post about a specific activity. In addition to the link above, there is also a Pinterest button on the homepage of my website:
There are a variety of boards for you to find the perfect outing. Clicking on any “pin” will link you to my blog post. In there, you can read about the activity and find links to get current dates/times as well as ticket information.
First, let’s talk about the “month” boards. This option will have links to the activities that only occur on a single date in that month. For example, in the photo below, you can see the board for October. I have a link in October for the Bacon and Beer Festival. This was a one-day event that occurs every year. These will be helpful if you need to plan ahead.
I will have a board for the seasons as well as a “Limited Time” board. This one will be ever changing as I add and delete activities that are only happening for a short time. Like Jack’s Pumpkin Pop-up, which is open from October 3 – November 3.
You also might notice that some of my blog posts appear in more than one board. That is because some activities fall into more than one category. The Chicago Blackhawks Training Camp Festival is a sporting event, however, it also takes place on a single day in September. I think this will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
There is a glitch in the Pinterest app if you are accessing it from your phone. Right now, if there are only two “pins” in a category, it shows the same picture twice even though they are different. Currently, in the Heritage Corridor Ale Trail board, I have a blog post about Miskatonic Brewery and another blog post about the three breweries we visited down in Starved Rock County. But the app shows the photo for Miskatonic twice. Once you click on the whole board, you will see two different blog post options. Hopefully, this kink will work itself out once I add more posts about the Ale Trail.
Follow me on Pinterest and, hopefully, this will be an easy-to-use tool for when you inevitable ask each other “What should we do this weekend?”!
