This fail blog, appropriately titled 'Pintester,' is a bold endeavor by romance writer Sonja Foust.

Featuring incredibly detailed recaps of her trials and tribulations encountered while trying out Pinterest DIYs and recipes, this is a hilarious blog with a satirical edge. Incredibly self-deprecating and sarcastic, Foust is a likable writer with a remarkable ability to make the most of her failed attempts at crafting, baking and cooking. The blog has gained an impressive following thus far, and even has several sponsors to keep the project going. An honest and unpolished innovation inspired by Pinterest comes across as very refreshing, and is a welcomed move away from perfectly polished aspirational blogs.

Clever, amusing and making Internet users feel a little bit better about their crafting skills, this is a much-needed dose of honesty to the blogosphere.
