Pinterest button

Note: I will be posting some tutorial and DIY stuff over the next couple of weeks. I like sharing cool stuff that I've learned how to do with you guys, so you can make use of it too. Please comment with whether you like these types of posts or not. I could just stick to spiritual stuff, but it's hard to post those things on a regular basis cuz it's hard to come up with ideas :)

If you view my posts on a laptop or desk computer (in other words, not a mobile device), you may notice a big Pinterest logo pop up whenever you mouse over an image in my posts. This is new, as of like a half hour ago, you're not imagining things :)

Would you like to add the same feature to your blog? Check out the tutorial link below:

If you've never been in Blogger's "edit HTML" before, here's how to find it:
From any page in your blog control center (whether you're viewing your list of posts or checking your stats), click "Template" on the left sidebar.

From there, you'll see the screen below, and you should click the button that I circled in red:

At this point, my best advice is trial and error. The </body> tag mentioned by the tutorial is hard to find, and in mine it actually said </tbody>

HTML is confusing, at least to me.

Anywho, mine was around line 2080, if that gives you anything to go by. For comparison, that's a little more than 3/4 of the way down the right-hand slide-y bar, and I have 2700+ lines of code total.

Place your cursor right in front of the </body> tag and hit enter. Place the code provided by the tutorial in that space you just created (ABOVE the </body> tag!)

Hopefully my suggestions make the tutorial less confusing :) I feel like they never give enough detail in tutorials like that, so I tried to clarify for you guys :)

PS lemme know if you really hate the Pinterest logo, too. I can see how it might get annoying, but I think it could come in handy.

Also PS I'm on Pinterest now! I know absolutely nothing about how social networking works on Pinterest, but I'm under the name Marie-Rose Tremblay and my blog address is listed on my profile, if you wanted to stalk my boards for any reason :)

  1. Uh I hate editing HTML. I did it when I moved my navigation bar to the top of my screen and it took like 6 hours because I messed it up and couldn't figure out how to fix it. Defiantly not something I'm naturally good at. haha the blogger life is rough. :)



Dear People Who Comment,

You are awesome. That is all.
