We all know Pinterest is amazing… and if you don’t already know I LOVE PINTEREST. Like, a lot!! I even wrote a book about it (shameless self plug). I was surprised to learn that so many people were unaware of how easy it was to add a Pinterest board to your sidebar of your blog or website. I had people asking what plugins I used or if I had to code it in there myself.

Yikes!!!

It’s so much simpler than that!

So here’s a quick rundown of how you can super dooper easily add a Pinterest board to your sidebar!!

Do you know how incredibly easy it is to add a Pinterest board to your sidebar? It's so simple you'll have in done in a matter of minutes - no plugin needed

 

Step 1

Choose the board you want to add. It can be an individual board (think about what best suits your niche) or you can have your entire profile that will show all the latests pins you’ve added. If you’ve chosen an individual board, go to that board in Pinterest. If you’ve chosen your entire profile, go to your profile in Pinterest.

Step 2

Click on either the settings cog (for your whole profile) or the button with the ellipses in it (for an  individual board) They will look like this:

Step 4

Go to your website and add a text box widget to your sidebar. If you’re using the Genesis Framework (which you totally should be) this option will be under ‘Widgets’ and you’ll simply need to drag the text box to the part in your sidebar you’d like it to be.

Step 5

Paste the code into the box and click save!

You’re done!!!

You can alter the code if you’d like to make the pins within your widget larger.

Your board will normally look like this in your sidebar:

However if you’d like the pins to be larger all you have to do is where the code dictates the pin width – change it from “data-pin-scale-width=”80″ data-pin-scale-height=“200” to “data-pin-scale-width=”120” data-pin-scale-height=“300” to have your pins appear like this:

Or if you’d like your pins to appear on your board as a single column you can change the code to look like this “data-pin-scale-width=”240” data-pin-scale-height=“600”.
