How to Add a Pinterest Button to Your Blog

I had the pleasure of attending my very first Philly Social Media Mom's event today and had a great time. I was so excited to meet Madigan of Madigan Made and Diane of In My Own Style. I instantly felt connected to them and inspired by their passion for blogging and their down to earth nature. I can't wait to meet up with them again!

The workshop today was on SEO: Search Engine Optimization and provoked a lot of thought and consideration for where I want my blog to go. While at the workshop, Madigan, Diane, and I shared knowledge about our own personal experiences with blogging and one of the things that I learned today is how to add a Pinterest button to your blog!!

I have admired Madigan's pinterest button on her blog, Madigan Made for quite some time and was pleased to find out how easy it is to install. (Thanks Madigan!)

Do you want to know how to add a Pinterest button to your blog?

Visit Pinterest
In the top right hand corner, click on about.

Find "help" and click on it.

Now, click on "goodies" and scroll down until you find "Follow Button" for your website.
Choose from the button options and click on your favorite.
Copy the HTML code. 

Visit your blogger dashboard and click on DESIGN.
Decide where you want your Pinterest button to go and click ADD GADGET.
Select HTML/Javascript.
Paste your code from Pinterest.
Click Save.
Save and Enjoy!

If the button is too big or too small, visit Pinterest again and select a different button.

Happy Pinning!

I'm new to your blog but found you through Diane and Madigan. I attended the I <3 Thrifting day and one of the PSMM workshops with them as well - aren't they the best? We had such a great time together, so I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting you at some point as well.

Hi Holly!
I am so happy to "meet" you on my blog. I hope I get to meet you in person also. Diane and Madigan are amazing women and I loved spending time with them. I am brand new to the PSMM group and am really excited about all the activities that are constantly going on. I would have loved to attend the thrifting day! I hope there is another one in the future.

I look forward to meeting you! Do you blog? I would love to check it out. :)gina
