I found these blog and ehow instructions on how to make a blog button and I'm so excited! Just in case anyone else is searching for the same thing, follow their easy instructions. Grab my button! :)
P.S. I did have to make a photobucket account to get this to work and it was a super fast to set up. When I clicked on the photo in photobucket, it opened a new page. Scroll over the image, go to the "share" tab, click on "more options," click on the "get link code" tab, copy the appropriate html for what you're making the button for, and you're set to put it into the coding.
P.P.S. Thanks Vintage Graphics for awesome background wallpaper for my new button.
