Adding a Blog Button to your Blog

Have you noticed blog buttons popping up all over the blogosphere? They are the new cool thing to have on blogs!! It seems like everyone has a grab code box on their blogs!! Once you've grab the code how do you get it on your blog? Here's a tutorial on how to add that special blog button to your blog!

First, of course, you need to highlight and copy and the code inside the scroll box.

Now go to your layout page and click Add a Gadget.



The Add a Gadget Page will now pop up!



Scroll down and click on HTML/JavaScript.



Once the HTML/JavaScript box pops up paste the code in the box.
(the one you grabbed from the scroll box)

Last click save and enjoy!!

You can then go back into your layout page and move the blog button where you want it on your sidebar by dragging and dropping it!! Don't forget to click save at the top of your layout page!!

Amy this was for you!! Hope it was helpful!!

Hi! Andrea at Here a Scrap There a Scrap suggested I contact you because I have a question! I love how you put the lady bug border on her posts below the comment area. I've been desperately searching for instructions on how to add an image border like that to separate posts.

If you wouldn't mind helping me out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks,

I would love to learn how to resize a button on my blog. I love the side-by-side mini-button look like you see on some of the links here:

They have spots where they have like a column of 2x4 smaller buttons instead of just one bigger button. Does that make sense? Any idea about how to go about that? I feel like I've been looking all over Google, but have had NO luck. Thanks for any help!
