Help!!!

I'm hoping to make a button of my own but I've no idea how to do it. Anyone know? This blogging business is quite tricky if you've not got any IT knowledge like little old me.

I had the same problem! I found some great info here:

Hi, Thanks. I've had a look and am now battling the difficulties of the photo bit as I'm not sure what a url etc is! Will get there though, one day, soon I hope!

Are you having a hard time with the url for the photo you want to use for your button? I uploaded the image I wanted to use to photobucket.com. They generated the url for the photo that I used. I'd be happy to help in any way, so let me know if I can help.

hello again, yes help please!!! I went to photobucket as you suggested and edited the photo etc then went to the share option and they added it to my blog but instead of it being a button for anyone to use to link to my blog it links to my photobucket album! I really have no idea what I am doing so any help you have would be greatly appreciated.

Ok scrub that I've managed to get it to show a button and it links to my blog, yipee.

Now the downside is I can't seem to be able to write the code in text form for anyone to copy so that if per chance they might be interested in me they could add one to their page without it just coming up in another picture.

Any ideas. Sorry really am ignorant on this stuff!

Try this site. It has the code written for you, just replace with your info. This seems much easier than the first link I posted.

Thank you, Thank you!!!

This coding stuff is rather bewildering but I got there in the end with your link.
