Is Your Blog Verified on Pinterest?

Happy Friday, everyone.  I've been feeling SO incredibly behind with SO many things lately.  How about you guys?  

Well,  one thing on my To-Do List was to clean up my Pinterest profile.  

While I was updating, I noticed that if you have a website, you can choose to verify it (so it will show up in your profile as a clickable link).

I don't know when they added that, but I like it!!!  So off I went to verify...Just one problem, I had absolutely NO idea what was meant when it said in the directions for verification to "upload file to server."  WHAT???  Even further, I had no clue what to do when it started throwing the word "meta tag" at me (I'm not so familiar with html)!

So I did a little research on how to verify your blog.  It took me all of two minutes.  There were lots of tutorials.  I found quite a few directions for wordpress blogs, but here I am on the Blogger platform and having no idea what to do!  Until I found this gem to share with you today, that is.  If you have a website and you're not verified on Pinterest yet, I recommend it.  It allows Pinterest users to easily find your site, because the link is right there, and it's clickable!  

Give it a try, and check out the Pin below:

Please keep in mind that the tutorial above is for Blogger blogs.  If you're a wordpress user, here's a tutorial for you - CLICK HERE.

If your blog is already verified on Pinterest, did you find it easy to do?  Did you use a tutorial like the one above? 

Hope you enjoyed today's Blogger Tip.  For more tips, you can visit my Pinterest board full of them HERE.  I'm always looking for more things to add to the board too, so if you have tip you'd like to share, please do!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by.

I'm still not on pinterest even though I know I should be -I get so many views on Etsy from other people pinning my prints. It just seems like it would be a huge distraction for me haha I'm sure I'll get one at some point though and will definitely keep this in mind.

Hope you have an awesome weekend!
