    1. Thank you so much for the compliment, Alison! :) That's not good about Pinterest! What happens when you try to pin? There should be a Pinterest sharing button popping up when you hover over the desired blog photo. Is it not working? What internet browser are you using? Thank you for the heads up, I will definitely look into it! :)

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
