Adding a Pin It Button to your Posts - Revised!!

Well.... all that trouble trying to figure out how to add this little button to a post!

Then you figure it out and they change it! Well, this time for the better!

 has made it much easier to add the 'Pin It' button to your posts so your readers can pin you to their boards.

Now you can go to their 'goodies' section on their website, enter in your details and get the code all written out for you!
Click here, scroll down to "Pin It" Button for Websites and you will see this:

Fill in the info asked for, the URL of the webpage you want the pin on, the URL of the image, and the description you want. The description is not necessary but it gives your readers a place to start and can be changed/ replaced by them. You can also specify if you want your pin count next to or above your button, or not at all.

So, now that you have all this fancy code, you can copy and paste it into your blog post in the 'Edit HTML' mode and voila! You have your pin it button.
For specific instructions on which url's to use, see this post Adding Pin It To Your Posts.
