How do I add the "follow me on pinterest" button to my blog

  1. I've been trying to add a link to follow me on pinterest to my blog. I've been trying to add it to my side bar along with the "follow on facebook" link. I haven't had any luck. I've tried adding it as a custom menu item but then it just replaces all of the links to my pages and still doesn't link to pinterest. Any ideas on where I should be adding it?

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

  2. You can put the code for the Pinterest follow button in a text widget.

    1. Go to this site, choose which one of the red Follow Me images you want, and copy the code for it. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

    2. Then, go to your widgets > Appearance > Widgets and select a text widget.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    3. Paste the Pinterest follow button code into the text widget, "save" the widget, "close" the widget and place it where you want it to display in your sidebar.

  3. Thank you thank you thank you! Been dealing with the same issue all morning. Seemed like an easy thing to do, but it wasn't for me! Glad to have company.

  4. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog.

  5. Thank you, after trying for an hour, I found your post and I now have it on my side bar
