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!
