I hope I have convinced you in part 1 of this series that a logo is an invaluable addition to your marketing repertoire. In this post, I explain how to use that logo to create a button for your Blogger website. For those unfamiliar with them, buttons are a way for your readers to "grab" your logo and copy it to their own sites. When their readers click the image, they are redirected to your website. It is a visual replacement of a www.blablabla.com link to your page.
I have to offer an enormous thank you to Cory Cuthbertson of Coryographies, as it was her step-by-step advice that permitted me to do this myself. I now pass this information along to you, because I want your buttons on my sites. Before we begin, allow me to share that I'm a moron when it comes to HTML. If I can do this, so can you. So here goes:
<center><a href="http://www.murderlab.com" alt="Murder Lab"><img
<textarea cols="15" rows="4" wrap="virtual"><a href="http://www.murderlab.com"><img src="http://images2.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp54393%3Enu%3D3269%3E95%3A%3E395%3EWSNRCG%3D38%3A56994%3B332%3Anu0mrj" /></a></textarea></center>
First, in the two places above where I have "http://www.murderlab.com", replace the text between the quotation marks with your own website. You must include the http://. This will direct the button to your page. You're half done.
Next, after the <img src= (again, two spots), replace this with a link to your own image (this can be a Photobucket site or any other site on the web where you have uploaded your logo. I use Snapfish, and when I right click the image on Snapfish I have the option to "copy image URL" and paste it here.)
That's it! Click "Save" and arrange your layout how you want it. Then click "Save Arrangement" and you should have a brand new button for the stealing on your site.
