How to Show Recent Pins on Your Blog

First go to this link
When you are there, either click on the Profile Widget (It will show your most recent pins) or the Board Widget (It will show a specific board). 
If you picked the Profile Widget then go on your profile on Pinterest and copy the URL. 
If you picked the Board Widget go to the specific board of your choosing on your profile and copy the URL. 
Then paste the URL where it says "Pinterest User URL".
Now it's time to customize it! At the bottom of where you put your URL, there is something that says "Custom Sizes". Click on Roll Your Own so you can customize the size. Once you've done that, click on one of the different choices(the things that say header, sidebar, and square). I chose the square one. Type in the correct size that is the same size as your side-bar.
Below the Build It button  there is a place where you can see the preview of what it will look like on your blog.
When you're all done click on the Build It button.
 If you scroll down you will find a code. Copy it and paste it in a Html/JavaScript gadget in your layout. View your blog to make sure it looks right. 
Now your all done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I know a lot of you might already know how to do this, but I thought I'd share this anyway.
I will probably be doing more blog design tips in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled!


  1. Where to you put the code for the widget?
