How To Create A Button For Your Blog

bgbbutton2Creating a button for you blog is a great way to drive traffic, build community and have others show their support for your blog. If you notice we have a button on our sidebar that I would greatly appreciate you adding to your blog :)

I’ve been asked how to create a button a few times via email so I thought I’d make a post for easy reference. It seems like it should be hard but it’s so easy.

The first thing you need to do is create your button image. You can have a designer do it for you or you can do it yourself using photoshop or

Once you’ve created your image you need to host it somewhere. You can do this several ways. I recommend hosting it on your WordPress blog or on Blogger.

Once your picture is hosted grab the URL and go to this website and follow the instructions.

BOOM! You now have a blog button!

Hope this helped.

    Thank you, I’m just learning so much from reading everything on here! I’ve been trying to figure out for the longest how to make a blog button.

  • I figured out how to host pictures on blogger about a week before I switched to WordPress. Lol. I actually wrote a post about it so others don’t go through the same thing.

  • I remember being totally confused about how to make blog buttons! Last summer I finally figured it out and made a bunch of them in different sizes so I could just grab what I needed in the future. I adjusted my image on PicMonkey (which is a great free resource that’s easy to use) then hosted on Flickr. The hosting part was the hardest for me to figure out, and I only stumbled upon how to do it through Blogger once I’d already finished!

  • Thanks for reading.
