How To Add a Button To Your Blog


Hello! This post is for those of you who are new at blogging and may be unsure how the whole thing works in terms of setting up your blog.

I happen to use blogger because it's free! You should be able to use these same principles no matter what your blogging service is. If you use word press and have clear directions, link to them here!

I want to share this with you in case you'd like to promote what we're doing here in the Buy-A-Bag drive. I think it's so much fun creating a blog because it's simple, fast and you can see results immediately.

So, without further adu.....

On the side of our blog, you'll see the picture you see here in this post. Directly under that is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, which is html code. Copy that by right clicking and highlighting and clicking on "copy".

Go to your blog. In blogger, you can see the design tab once you click into your blog from your dashboard. Click on "design". Click on "page elements". In blue, you will see "add a gadget". Click on that. If you scroll through the list that pops up, you will see "html/java script". Click on the blue plus sign next to those words. In the "content" section right click, highlight and then click on "paste". The code you copied from this blog will be right there! You can add a title if you like or you can skip that part! Click "save". Take a look at your blog and the button/picture should be right there! When people click on that button they will be taken directly to the page on our site that explains the campaign and how they can get involved!

Of course you can do that with any buttons to choose to upload as well.

As I learn things like this, I'll pass them along to you so you can spread the word and have fun while doing it!

Hope you have a good Thursday!
