Finally Learned How to Make a Blog Button!

It takes a great deal of patience to create a blog that is user-friendly, nicely designed and fun to read. I have slowly been working on improving this blog, and posting in my spare time. I usually figure things out through trial and error, but one thing that has completely frustrated me is learning how to make a Google blog button.

I know, I know. You've already got that one figured out. Congratulations. But sometimes the world of HTML code is, well . . . difficult. You have to dot every "i" and cross every "t," or something will go wrong.

I'm fairly thorough when searching for how-to web articles, so after trying the instructions on three different sites (yes 3!) and failing, the fourth one did the trick. I guess I learned plenty from all three sites, but if you are trying to make your own blog button, I recommend going to and trying the step-by-step instructions there. And using Photobucket. Or hire someone.

If you know of another very detailed instruction site that helped you create your blog button, please comment. And for those of my wonderful readers who have asked for it, my blog button is now on the sidebar.  :) I'm very proud of it.


  1. Making a button is one of the hardest things I've done. I unexpectedly had to have 3 made in a 24-hour deadline and I'm amazed I wasn't bald at the end! I'll definitely be putting your button on my blog. Here's the tutorial that finally made sense to me.

  2. I love your blog and refer to it often so thank you for creating a button and thank you for all of the work that you do!

  3. First of all hows your child. I really enjoyed post thanks for sharing.

  4. I just realized that your button wasn't working on my blog, I changed the code a bit to get it to work.

  5. Hi Kristi,

    Can you email me the code? So I can see what I need to fix? You used the button on the left of the page?


Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
