I wanted to share my new blog buttons with you! To add them to your site, copy the code in the text box below each image and paste it into a widget (if you use wordpress) or gadget (if you use blogger) on your side bar.
For those of you interested in making your own blog buttons, I’ve also included the resources I used to make them.
Here they are!
The internet is chock full of quality tutorials for coding almost anything! I followed these tutorials to create the code for my buttons:
2. I followed this tutorial to make the code for the button (its from Teacher Blogging Basics). It walks you through creating a widget and customizing the code so the button can show up in your side bar. Clear instructions, very easy to follow. This is good if you only want to add a button. If you want to add code below the button so people can copy it, read on to step 3.
3. I used this tutorial to make the code for the text box below each button (seen in the side bar). It is a “Grab a Button” generator. It will generate code for the button and text box below. Paste the code into a widget on your side bar to see it show up on your blog.
I learned SO much about coding and HTML code from this project. I knew next to nothing about it before, and I understand a great deal about it now. This is definitely a project that a beginner can handle. Good luck! Let me know if you want to swap buttons.
