Creating a button
« on: Feb 14, 2012 @ 12:40 PM »
Does anyone know of an easy way to create a button for my blog?  You know, the type that your fellow bloggers can share on on their blog in support?

Thanks!

Have you asked your blog designer if they have a matching banner for your template? A lot of designers have sets so it may be very inexpensive (maybe $2-$15) for a matching one if you don't have or know how to use graphic software.

A cropped 125 x 125 px photo can often work too!

Do you have a picture you want to use but just need to figure out the code? If not, then you can take a picture and add your blog address in an editing program. Then upload the picture to photobucket or flickr so you can get the html code for the image.

Then go to your blogger design page and add a gadget. Choose the one that says:
HTML/JavaScript Add
Add third-party functionality or other code to your blog.

In that mess of code below change my addresses (http://www.mondayswithmac.com) for yours and trade my photobucket codes for yours (http://i509.photobucket.com/albums/s338/kristinireland/mwm2-2-1.gif). And my blog title for yours.

I think that should work. I'm pretty new to this stuff too! If not send me a message and I'll try to figure it out for you.

I'm going to give it a whirl too. Thanks, Mondays with Mac! I've been wondering how to do this. But I'll wait for another night. My brain is fried right now.  :-\
