Promote Yourself - Make A Badge!

     Do you have a badge for your blog? Well you should, its a handy little thing to have - an easy way for others to post a link to your blog on their site and visa versa. And advertising yourself is what its all about right?
     I'm not very tech-savvy but I know people who are! So when I decided that I needed to have a button to promote my blog I asked my DIL (she's extremely tech savvy!) and she gave me a link to another blog that had step-by-step instructions on how to create the badge and link it to your site.
     I've decided to pay-it-forward so you can all have a cool badge and share your badge and link easier to each others sites! Before you go there, I'll share this - I made my badge image by taking a picture of a bracelet I made, edited it in PicMonkey, saved it in Photo Bucket and then followed the steps to  add it to the blog.

     Now, after you've followed her simple instructions for making and adding the badge to your blog, you can add other peoples badges to your site too! If your a Blogspot user the steps go like this:

Go to the DESIGN link on your navigation bar
   Select LAYOUT
     Then select ADD A GADGET
       From the menu choose HTML/JAVA SCRIPT
          Title the badge, COPY & PASTE the code (below the badge you want)
SAVE your work -

Bada-Bing! Easy as pie ~ you've added a badge to your site!!  Feel free to practice by adding my badge to your site - and when you have yours made, message me and I'll do the same for you!

    1. Etsy has a little script that you can grab - its under the Resources section on the left hand side of your Etsy home page. All you have to do is add it to your Blogger by going to your Layout, select - Add a Gadget. The one you want to add is the HTML - you cut and paste the code from Etsy and save it.
