Have you been seeing the Pinterest Widgets on other Bloggers sidebar and wondered how to get yours onto your blog?
I did too and I thought the only way to do that was to pay a monthly price of $9 or whatever the providers like Milotree charge.
Then I discovered there was a way to add your Pinterest profile widget to your blog sidebar for free and girl was I hooked!
Having your Pinterest profile visible on your blog can help you increase your Pinterest followers by a ton!
If you are reading this but you don’t have a blog of your own yet then you can check out my easy step-by-step guide on how to start your own blog today!
This super simple guide will show you how to add your Pinterest profile to your blog in less than 5 minutes!
Get onto the official Pinterest Widget Builder by clicking here!
Once there Click on the Profile and enter your Pinterest user URL (this can be found by going to your Pinterest page and copying the URL from there or typing in pinterest.com/yourusername)
Then choose the Size you want your widget to be in, I prefer the Square one as it is quite small and not overpowering but if you want to display more pins you should choose the Sidebar as the size.
Next what you have to do is Copy the code in the first paragraph ( <a date-pin…../ a>).
Do not close the Pinterest Widget Builder just yet, as you will need it in a minute!
Then what you must do is open up your WordPress page and go to Appearance and then Widgets
Find the Text button from your Available Widgets and drag it to Right Widget
Once you have dragged the Text into Right Widget Click on the Title and change it to whatever you would like to be displayed above the widget, I chose ‘Let’s become Pinterest Besties?’
Then you have to click away from the Visual bar into the Text bar and paste the first link you copied from the Pinterest Widget Builder and then go back to the Widget builder, copy the bottom box and paste that beneath the first one, then click Save.
After you click save your Widget should show up in your sidebar just like this:
That’s it! If you want, you can go back to the Pinterest Widget Builder and change the size and shape of the widget to better suit your blog and then just repeat the previous steps!
Hope you managed to set it up properly if you have any questions leave me a comment♥
