Here are easy step by step instructions:
Thank you to Musings of a Housewife for her (finally!) easy-for-anyone-to-do instructions!
- First you'll want to create your button.
For mine, I used Picasa to create it, but then uploaded it into Photobucket for the URL you will need. At least for me, this was the only way I got the button to show up without hyperlinks.
Make sure that when you create it, it's a square. At the end, resize it to either 125x125 pixels or 150x150 pixels. Save it and upload. Like I said, I saved it on my computer in my pictures folder, then uploaded it to Photobucket.
You can use different software and pay to get images, but I had an image already so didn't bother.
- For the button only. Replace the Web Page URL with the link to your blog. Make sure you keep the quotation marks! Replace the Image URL with the IMG code (for Photobucket). Delete the brackets [IMG] before and after the URL. Make sure you don't delete the quotation marks!
"Web Page URL"
- For the button with the drop box for the code (This allows others to snatch your code to put on their blog. This is an easy way for others to go to your blog, by simply clicking on your button in someone else's blog!)
