After I posted about my pin-it button, some of you were curious about how to add other buttons to your blogs. It's very easy to do once you figure it out, so here's how! You can do this with any social network or even make buttons that link back to other sites such as your friends websites or blog sponsors. All you need is a picture.
For this tutorial, we're going to use this Pinterest image that I found in a web search. For other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr you can search for "social network icons" and find loads of free icons that match each other or create your own in Photoshop (or I use Photoscape). Ok, here's my image:
1. left click on the image, select "save as" and save it to your computer
2. go to your blogger dashboard and click the "design" tab
3. select "add a gadget"
That's all there is to it! You can use this method to create buttons to other blogs, buttons to posts on your own blog, etsy shops, favorite online stores, etc. The only things that change are the links and images that you use. Any questions, just ask!
