{WordPress Wednesdays!} Grab My Button

Lately, I’ve been helping some people with this, so I thought it was a good idea for a {Wordpress Wednesday!} post.  Having a button for your blog is a great way to promote your blog around the blogosphere.  Consider it your calling card or your ad that can appear on other people’s blogs.  Once you’ve created your button, you can put it on your side bar in a text widget if you have a WordPress site.  Under your button will be a box with code for people to grab and post in their side bars.

When you have a wordpress.com site, however, it makes things a little difficult. What I like to use is the “Grab My Button” Code Generator.  It’s super useful and easy and it even has a selection between Textarea and Pre.  If you’re a wordpress.com user, you’ll want to select Pre.

Once there, just follow the directions.  You can even adjust the size of the text area box as you go.  Please keep in mind that you will have to have your button image uploaded somewhere to use this and will need the direct url to access it.  Meaning, if you type in the url, your image will appear. I upload mine to my wordpress site and then grab the direct url from there.  After you’ve generated your button and it looks how you want it, grab the code and paste it into a Text Widget on your side bar.  That’s it!  If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
