Various illustrations of trying new things.

Happy (almost) new year, everyone! We hope your holidays have been merry and bright, and that you’re fully recovered from all the holiday cheering.

Here at Pinterest, we’ve decided to try something a little different this New Years. Instead of making the same old list of resolutions, we’re pinning creative ideas we’ve always wanted to try instead: Like our PR specialist Mithya. She’s going to try different coffee spots around San Francisco. And one of our founders, Evan, is planning to build a photo wall at home.

We’d love for you to join us! All you have to do is:


Step 1: Pin the year you want!

Make your own “To Try in 2015” board and fill it with ideas you’ve always wanted to try—from little things (grow your own salad bar) to big life-changers (Antarctica, anyone?). And since the ideas you Pin are all visual, it’s easy to picture yourself doing them.

If you need some inspiration, take a look at what resolutionaries like Chef Emeril and globe-trotter Trey are trying this year over in our Ideas for 2015 Pin Picks .


Step 2: Share your board with friends

Studies show that when you tell friends about your plans, you’re more likely to do them. So try sharing your board on Facebook or Twitter, along with the hashtag #PinYourYear. You can even tag friends who might be able to help, or even challenge them to try something a little different this year, too.

Step 3: Try the things you’ve Pinned throughout the year

When you’re ready to give a Pin a try, the info you need is always right at hand—just click to see the site the Pin came from. And even if things don’t go exactly as planned the first time you try it, don’t worry about it. Because this year, the fun’s in the trying.
