So You Want to Add a Badge

Uh huh…so you want to add a badge to your blog but the code provided just doesn’t seem to work! Have no fear because today is about to become one of total satisfaction.

For Your Entertainment

I just taught myself a very important skill and I want to share it with you. If you want to add a badge or photo or button there’s a couple of ways to do it.

The one I have inserted here is NOT clickable, but if you visit Hide A Heart Inspires Expression you will see the same badge and that one IS clickable and here’s how I did it!

  • First you need to have an account with Photobucket.com or other photo sharing site to generate a picture ‘code’
  • Second you must have a ‘snipping tool’ option available on your computer
  • Third you need an adventurous and ‘can do’ attitude

Adding a badge, button or picture to Blogger:

  1. With a ‘snipping tool’ make a screen shot of your badge then save it in a file
  2. Open YOUR page from the site you want to link to the badge
  3. On your blog add a PICTURE gadget
  4. Download the screen shot of your badge from the file in which you saved it
  5. Be sure to add the URL address for YOUR badge page and save

Adding a badge, button or picture to a WordPress.com blog:

  • Upload the screen shot of your badge to Photobucket to get a picture code
  • Go to your WordPress blog and grab an IMAGE widget
  • Copy/Paste the DIRECT LINK code into the Image URL space
  • Copy/paste your page URL address into the space for URL link when clicking on image

This will do it. See mine here
