See the Pin it button in the footer of this
post, it's on the right side?
Why would you want a Pin it button on each blog post?
It can make it easier to quickly pin directly from the blog post, rather than using the Pinmarklet (bookmarking) in your toolbar or searching for the blog's Pin it button on the sidebars.
Individual Pin it buttons may help by giving correct credit and authorship with direct linking to the blog post.
Boost your marketing efforts and the blogs of other designers. This would be helpful for Team Members sending readers directly to the source of the product, whether it's jewelry, art, food, or something else. You can go directly to the blog or you can still use the other way and link from the shop, whichever is preferred. As a buyer, I like a mix- both blog and shop.
If it's easier to Pin, it may also bring in more pins from outside Pinterest. Do you keep seeing many of the same items pinned over and over again? It can become less interesting and monotonous with all of that repetition.
Not every post is Pin Worthy, but when it is, then having the button makes it a snap to save to your boards and share. I'd like to see the Pin it button on more Blogger posts in the blogosphere. What about you?
Julie Ann Art wrote an easy tutorial for the New Blogger Interface (she also has written one for the retired Blogger dashboard) and provided the code to insert the Pin It button. (I found her tutorial after clicking through Casey's Pinterest linky.)
Clicking on the little button at the bottom of the post brings up every image on the blog page. Just select the image as you usually do.
I tried the button on the right side, then on the left side, I tried it in the Post Template as one of her commenters did, and I settled on what you see. I may change the color, but I think it looks snazzy as-is.
I told you this was going to be a quick tip. Bookmark if you don't have time to read the tutorial right now.
Now I'm going to be bold and ask you to follow my Pinterest boards and the Blog if you like. Thanks and hope this tip has helped you.
