How to Embed Pins from Pinterest into a Blog Post

Since we’ve started our Pretty on Pinterest meme, I’ve had a number of people ask me how to make a post using pictures on Pinterest. It’s actually quite simple! Here’s how I do it:

Click on the picture you want to embed into your blog post.

Then click on Embed, found at the right side of the picture.

A bunch of html code will come up. Right click and copy the code.

For your blog post, make sure you are in html mode and then paste the code. Go back to Visual mode and you should see your picture.

To do the next picture, go back to html mode and then type the following little bit of html at the end of your code. Type <br></br>

This inserts a line break. I find if I don’t use that little bit of code at the end of every picture, my post will be messed up with pictures on top of eachother.

I’m sure everyone will do this differently, but this is what has worked for me!

    Thanks for the tip, here are three blogging questions.
    1. Is your Simplie Stacie G+ circle added on as a business page to your name – hope that makes sense. All the bloggers seem to have created circles with their names not blogs. How do you create your blog circle
    2. Where do you find the widget html code to add your blog once I create the blog circle.
    3. Where do you find social widget icons and how do you add them to your front page.

    You know what’s strange? When I embedded the photos on my post for this week’s meme, it actually messed up my entire site! So I had to go in a remove all the “div” stuff and descriptions for font color, etc. But after that, it worked fine. So weird though. Thanks for sharing this!

    Great tip! I have been wondering how to do this. Can’t wait to try it out.

    Funny though—I thought this was such a great tip that I “pinned’ it on Pinterest, under my “How To” board. It’s had 19 repins already, but all 19 repinned it under “food” or “yummy recipes.” Geesh–I thought at least one person would have read my description!
