Adding Facebook "Like" button as code in posts

  1. I am trying to add a Facebook "Like" icon into my blog posts. I've tried inserting several different codes into my blog posts, and none of them have worked properly; they either show up as code or don't show up at all. I also tried one other code that did give me a like button, but after I liked it, no one else could use the button; and, somehow I started out with 44 people liking it already?? Which, I hadn't even had the button in their until then....??

    This is what happened when I liked it, and also when I had a friend like it from his Facebook (It showed my icon as liking it and didn't allow him to do anything)

    http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=PASTE-POST-URL&show_faces=true&width=450&action=like&colorscheme=light

    Is it simply because I am not using wordpress.org?

    The blog I need help with is jamiesoule.wordpress.com.
