hey you bloggers!

Wanna learn something cool?

Spurred on by a fellow photogblogger, Kristyn, I made a blog button for Princess Pigbear. For those that don’t know, a blog button is just a cutesy way of advertising your blog in someone else’s links list (or your own links list). See mine over there??? ——>

If you click on it then it takes you to the page where it’s hosted. And then you can just copy the url address into your blog template. Okay, I know some of you are confused.

If you want to MAKE a blog button: (courtesy of Kristyn)
1. Design something in photoshop (or other editing software) that’s about 170px by 45px at a resolution of 72.
2. Uploaded the ‘button’ to a site like photobucket…anywhere that will provide you with a url once it’s up. You could also just insert it as a picture into your blog post then publish the post and click on it. It should take you to it’s own url, use that. (am I making ANY sense?)

As for inserting the blog button into your own links list you’re kind of on your own. I tried to post directions but blogger kept trying to post the HTML tags as actual images, etc. and I couldn’t figure out how to make it STOP doing that. If you really want to know though I’d be happy to walk you through it…just email me!

I’ll be sure to give you a huge shout out if I see my blog button on your blog!

Very cool. Hopefully you can give me a tutorial in person this week!

I saw this on someone else’s blog – she had a bunch of blog buttons – so cool!!! I’ll have to try it out! I’ll make sure to put yours on my blog, if you don’t mind :-).

Erin, I don’t think I’m seeing the button. Could you email it to me? I’m not sure if it’ll work on mine, but I’ll give it a shot… 🙂

JeanelleJuly 30, 2007 - 8:23 am

Yeah! I figured it out and added your blogbutton to my links.
I haven’t designed my own, yet.
When Gabby Grace takes a nap, I will!
Thanks for sharing this!

Jeanelle…it looks awesome…it’s kinda fun to learn something new, isn’t it?!

JeanelleJuly 30, 2007 - 11:50 am

Absolutely! I appreciate you taking the time to tell us about it!

JeanelleJuly 30, 2007 - 11:51 am

P.S. – forgive the fact that I clicked on your blogpage a gazillion times – I was going back & forth trying to figure things out.

JaimeJuly 30, 2007 - 4:03 pm

Cool…I will add it to my blog if you don’t mind.
I would also like to know how you deleted someones post? I want to delete one on my blog but I can not for the life of me figure it out.
You can email me at jaimepott@gmail.com if you dont’ wanna leave it here.
Thanks so much

I didn’t actually remove that comment…the author of it did. Usually someone will delete if they accidentally posted twice or something. BUT you can delete comments that you’re not comfortable with. Just make sure you’re logged into blogger as you and then when you go the comments page there should be a little trash can next to each comment. Just click there. Good luck!

I can’t figure out for the life of me how to put your button on my blog. Any advice would be great!
