How to put a LinkedIn badge in your blog?
WordPress.com doesn’t support scripts, so you can’t put the LinkedIn Profile Widget in your blog in a straight forward manner.
Although this is not optimal, you can generate an image of your desired widget, and post it in your side bar – linked to your LinkedIn profile. If someone clicks on this picture he or she will be redirected to your professional profile at LinkedIn.
If you want it to look good you’ll need to generate your widget, crop it, remove irelevant information (like ‘Get this widget’), fix the background color to match your blog, scale it to the right size for your sidebar, sharpen it, and compress the resulting image with a lossless algorithm.
There is the easy alternative of just linking your profile to an image of the LinkedIn logo, but it gives on information about you and people are probably less likely to click it!
