    How do I link my Pinterest page and other social media such as Stumble Upon, Google Plus, etc… (other than Facebook & Twitter) to my blog? And not just individual posts…the main blog?

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

    After becoming Pinterest members, WordPress.com bloggers can post the follow me on Pinterst button code on their blogs 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.

    Thanks, timethief! Can you help me get all of my social media buttons into a block (a row of 3 on top of another row of 3) instead of one on top of another down my sidebar?

    Are you talking about the site linked to your username? If so, please note that there is no user-generated advertising allowed on WordPress.com, but for a few very narrow exceptions. http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/ Please also see http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/ , particularly those under Affiliate Marketing.

    As far as lining up your social media icons in a block, you’ll need to use a table to do so, which you can write in the HTML editor of a draft Page or Post and then copy and paste the code into a text widget.

    Here a resource for writing tables: http://wp.me/paTVO-1Q3
