How to add a Pinterest Button on Blogger!

February 11, 2012
As you know everyone's new favorite thing is Pinterest. It should be, it is awesome!  Tim is hooked, I however, am still waiting to be admitted to the inner circle. :/  We decided we really wanted needed a Pinterest button on our blog! The problem is, that Blogger doesn't have one of those cool little Pinterest buttons for the footer like they have buttons for Facebook and google+ ect. I have the utmost confidence that they will get it soon but until then I really didn't want to have to add a link to every post I make.

Well a few weeks ago I found learned how to put our contact, website, and home buttons at the bottom of every post using a 'Post Template.'  I thought "Gee, I wonder if I could do that with a Pinterest button too." Turns out YOU CAN! very simply. (Check it out at the bottom to the left)

Want one?

1. Go to your blog posts

2. Look to the menu on the left, the last tab is Settings.  Click!

3.The second tab down is Posts and comments. Click!

4. Under POSTS at the top are 3 options, the middle one is 'Post Template' and next to it 'Add.' Click!

5. Now copy this:





Follow Me on Pinterest


6. Paste what you just copied into the 'Post Template' field. (If you copy this html exactly, the button will take you to the Pinterest main page. To link to your personal page go to your Pinterest page and copy your username that comes after the slash. Add it after the slash in the first set of html so this: changes to this username"> Now your button will link directly to your Pinterest boards.)

7. Save changes and go open a new post.

Voila! Now every time you blog a post, that little button will automatically load up in each post without your even having to think about it.  Let me know how it goes!

8. Now pin this on Pinterest so everyone can be cool like you and me

P.S. the button has a blue outline on the post page but looks just like mine on the blog post.  Happy Blogging! :)
