    Hi Sheriff. Thank for sharing this. Since this article was written, here at Pinstamatic HQ, we've been busy adding new content types. Now you can also add music, locations, calendar dates, and quotes in different styles to your Pinterest board. And there's more on the horizon.... We'd love to hear from you and other Pinterest users who have ideas of what they would like to add to Pinterest (we are @pinstamatic and support@pinstamatic.com).
