If Pinterest Was For Dudes…

The Pinterest Logo

I recently signed up for an online course that provided a basic introduction to Pinterest.

If you’re not aware of what Pinterest is, it’s the third-largest and fastest-growing social media platform on the web.

It’s kind of like a living mashed up visual montage of Better Homes & Gardens, Food & Wine, Parenting, Style and People magazines blended with the Oscars red carpet plus a dash of baby shower with a healthy dose of Silpada jewelry all drizzled in chocolate.

Given that description, it’s not surprising that an estimated 98 percent of all Pinterest users are women.

Don’t get me wrong, there are tons of cool things to see and learn on this addictingly-awesome site; however, it got me thinking of possible Pinterest spin-off sites that might appeal to guys:

1. Ginterest – a site dedicated to drink mixology and “manly” grain alcohols such as scotch, whiskey and rye.

2. Finterest – everything about sharks ranging from hammerheads, tiger sharks, great whites to shark attacks.

3. Enginterest – a web site that only features the crankshafts and gearboxes of all things motorsports.

4. Qui-Gon Jinnterest - this site would focus on all Jedi masters and the Star Wars mythology (except Jar Jar Binks).

5. Flinterest – this would be a web page dedicated to starting camp fires, building makeshift shelters, eating bugs and a tribute to the alpha-male of outdoor survival, Bear Grylls.

6. Sin Binterest – a site that celebrates the bruisers and enforcers of the NHL who spend more time in the penalty box (or Sin Bin) than they do on the ice.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go get in touch with my feminine side over on Pinterest – you can follow me there, by clicking HERE.

Question: What other possible site names might be appropriate for a masculine version of Pinterest?

  1. I love it. My husband looked at Pinterest and said, “This is useless. I have google.” Meanwhile I’m at my laptop pinning everything going, “This is awesome!!!”

  2. LOL, How about Nasterest dealing with Nascar. My hubby might also be interested in Enginterest. He doesn’t even know what Pinterest is. I’m not sure I want him to know he will roll his eyes just like he does with Facebook.

    Have you not heard of Gentlemint? It already exists as “Pinterest for manly men.”

  4. Hmm. Maybe that’s why I keep staring at it and wondering why!

  5. How about gymterist – for those guys who can’t get enough of working out? Our fanterist for all things sports related from the couch.

  6. Funny stuff, Tor!

    How about:

    Boogterest (no description necessary)

    Smellterest (no–not separating metals from rock–this site is dedicate to fart contests)

    Blingterest (with your host, Mr. T.)

  7. So what is wrong with having your own manly Pinterest boards? Football! Man Cave! Beer Cans! Heavy Metal! Sweat! Come on, men!

  8. Litlears17 says:

    How about just “manterest”
    Any and everything man

  9. How about Golferest – a site dedicated to ways to help guys play more golf while avoiding leaving their wife feeling like a golf widow.

  10. Excellent post. This is the best description of Pinterest I have ever written. As a matter of fact I’ve quoted it and linked this page to a blog post on Pinterest

  11. Hi, Tor. Thanks for the follow on Twitter. I love your site and re: your question for a manly Pinterest site, one does exist! Go to Gentlemint.com. It’s a great site.

    I hesitate to suggest this inappropriate alternative, but the one that comes immediately to mind is Skinterest. Only . . . I think there are already enough of that kind of website.

  13. Mullenann4 says:

    I love these ideas. Where is the guy who invented Pinterest? He needs to check these out. HaHa.

  14. I agree! I often wonder how many WeightWatcher Points are in the Chocolate Trifle I covet – CURSE YOU PINTEREST!!!!
