How to add a blog button to your blog

It may sound so pathetic, but today after agreeing to do a blog button swap with the lovely Amy, I panicked. I couldn't figure out how to add a blog button and link to someone else's page. So i thought it may be handy for other bloggers who might be having the same problem. Here we go:

1. Go to the layout page, which allows you to add gadgets.
2. It will then take you to the add gadget, and layout page

3. When you get on that page, click add gadget. 
4. The add image. I have seen loads of people try adding at html but the best way I found is to add an image. It may say Picture on yours, it does vary from blog to blog.

5.When you click on it, it should say Configure Image.

6. Put whatever title you want, I put 'Some of my lovely Bloggers'.
7. Choose the image of your friends/advertisers blog button and upload it by choosing the file button. 

8.Then enter the link to their blog. Be careful that if you are copying it directly from the web address to delete one of the two https as I made this mistake!

9. And always make sure to save!!

Hope this helps and have fun adding blogs my lovelies!


  1. Thanks for posting this, I never was quite sure how that worked, lol. How did you make the button for your blog? I think I'd be pretty okay with posting one, but I don't know how to make one for myself. :(

  2. I used my friend Adam to create one :) He was amazing using photoshop. He may be able to do one for a small fee? xx
