Adding a Button to your blog is a great way to advertise.
[A button is a clickable image that leads others to your blog. Like the one I have in the top right corner]
If you already know the basics and are just looking for the HTML coding scroll down to the bottom of this post. I have included codes for BOTH types of Buttons: Grab My Button & Regular Button
There are 2 types of buttons: a Grab Button, and a Regular Button
Both are really easy to create
But first you will need to create an image (for which you will need Photoshop, Illustrator, or something along those lines) Pxlr is a great online open image editor. And it's FREE! Woo hoo! You can also use Phoenix or Photoshop Online.
You will also need an account with Photobucket or any other image uploading website. (the basic accounts are free)
My tutorial will be with a Photobucket account.
First Upload your image to Photobucket.
(Make sure you saved it in JPEG format and that your image is NO bigger than the width of your sidebar! An average sidebar is around 180-220 pixels. A good sized button will be around 200 x 200 pixels. give or take)
Find your image and click on it. It will automatically upload for you.
Next, find your image in your account and click on the SHARE button
A pop up box will appear.
Click on the GET LINK CODE button
Then copy the DIRECT LINK code to your clipboard by either right clicking or clicking Ctrl C.
That is the HTML code you need to complete the rest of your button.
Next, you will need to copy and paste the following code into your blog by clicking ADD A GADGET and then selecting the HTML GADGET.
If you'd like to take my images, content, or information, I ask that you please provide proper credit, citation, and link back to my blog if applicable. If you think you can be sneaky and take without asking, you should know that I know how to catch you... and will catch you, at which point I reserve the right to be a big fat meanie!
