How to Make a Blog Button with a Grab It Code on Blogger

When I first started blogging, blog buttons were all the rage.  This was back before paid sponsorships, and before blogging had become the business industry it is today.  I made my fair share of blog buttons on my old blog, but after awhile, I feel they sort of fell out of fashion.  The blogger button didn’t have the same appeal as it once did, so I 86’ed them.

Now I feel like the blog button is having something of a resurgence.  I don’t know if that’s actually true – Just a gut feeling.  So I set to work at making one for Heather Hearts.  Only trouble is, the coding that I used to use didn’t seem to work anymore.  The text box beneath the button kept turning out blank.  What’s a girl to do?

But lo and behold, I cam across a brilliant site that helps build your blogger button grab it code in a matter of seconds!  Here’s how it’s done….
Go to this website:  http://www.mycoolrealm.com/sandbox/gbgen/

Simply plug in your blog url and your image url, make any adjustments to width, hit preview, and then grab the code!  Copy the code and paste it into a new HTML gadget on your sidebar.  Save it and it should appear on your sidebar immediately!
