Blog Button - How To

UPDATE #2:  (7/18/10)
Added the following How To links:

Let me just start by saying I'm super new to this. I'm embarrassed to say I spent hours trying to figure this shit out. So I'm saving this so I don't forget and posting it so if you're like me you don't have to waste your time.

The following is how to add your button to your blogger blog.

1) Upload/create picture on computer.

2) Upload picture to Picasa (or similar), change size, add text, etc. then save to desktop.

3) Now go to your Blogger Dashboard, click Design, click Add Gadget, find Picture and click on + sign.

4) This screen will pop up.

5) Enter your blog url in Link box. Click Browse. Find your picture from your desktop. Click Open. Click Save.

6) Click View Blog and there it is. Now save and your good to go.

*UPDATE: I originally posted this on 6/13/10. I had a request for pictures. I feel like such a dumb ass because I thought adding pictures was going to be really hard to learn. ((so embarrassed.... AGAIN))

You know I have been asked this a dozen times or more... it would be great if you had a sample of what the code is supposed to look like (let me know if you decide to add this and I'll forward your instructions next time I'm asked). Thanks for your blogging tips!

Rachel, I'm sorry. I'm working on that. I'm new at this so it took me FOREVER just to figure that part out.

Yay! I love how to's! I'm horrible at figuring this stuff out myself, so I can't wait to play with this!

I can't stop myself from tweaking! It's kinda like when you were 10yo and tried to cut your bangs... "Just a little bit more".
