TIP TUESDAY # 31 Add A Pinterest Profile to your Blog

Pinterest is an awesome way to get more traffic to your blog, and eventually your shop if you are a blogging - shop owner like me!

Making sure people can find all of your social media accounts on your blog can be really beneficial. So today's Tip Tuesday is about adding a Pinterest board or profile widget to your blog. It is really easy once you know where to go!

Click HERE to open up the Pinterest Widget Builder, it looks like this

The next thing you want to do is decide what you want to display, a sample of your most recent pins from your profile, OR a specific board on your page. I want to show off my profile, so I clicked on PROFILE WIDGET

Replace the the text after the / with your username {see where mine says "nicolina" now}

If you want a basic square, click SQUARE, a long and skinny one choose HEADER, and if you want to make a custom one, click ROLL YOUR OWN

If you want to roll your own, this next step is for you, if you choose one of the pre-designed ones go ahead to the next step

Fill out the form with your dimensions, if you are unsure, guess and check and keep changing the dimensions and clicking preview until it looks right!

Once you are happy with your preview or want to test it out on your blog scroll below the preview to the code box.

Copy the code and paste it into an html widget on your blog's layout page!

Preview it on your blog and you can check out mine on my sidebar! As always I will be happy to answer any questions you have if you leave them in the comments!
