How to add Pinterest button to each post.


Some people have asked about the pin it button at the bottom of each post. That button is to make it easy to pin things you like to your Pinterest board. You can find my boards here.

What is Pinterest you may ask, this is what they say it is.

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. (Highly Addictive)

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

When you see something you like on the internet and want to save, instead of  bookmarking  it you can just pin it. Why pin instead of bookmark. It's easy to just pin a blog post, maybe you don't want the whole blog or you want to easily find 1 post. It akes it easy to see the pictures and inspire you instead of reading the titles to the websites on the bookmark. You share your interest with others who follow you and like the same things, and see what others are pinning who have the same interests as you.

Ok, so now you know what it is, here is how you can get it on each post in your blog.

1. Copy this code.

2. Once you've logged into your Blogger Account, if you are not in the old blogger interface go there, I'm not sure how to do it in the new blogger interface, go to the Design tab and select Edit Html. Make sure to check the "Expand Widget Templates" box.
As seen here.

3. Look for < div class=" post-footer" >
and paste the code directly after that. If you have a lot on your blog it may take awhile to find it but it is there.

4. Save your template.
5. Check your blog and see it there.
