Fellow Bloggers...The Newbie Needs Help...Please

Starting a blog is super exciting, but overwhelming too. I see all these amazing blogs and great things that fellow educators are doing.  Unbelievable!! I love how people are so creative and so willing to share. I want to do it too. I want to be a blogging rockstar someday, but right now I just want to know one thing... How do you get someone's button to show up in a blogging post so that when you click on redirects to that person's blog? I thought you just copied their grab my button code and put it in as a link, but that didn't work. Is there anyone out there that can help me? I would appreciate it!  

On a sillier note... all the girls are having a girl's night out tomorrow...MAGIC MIKE!!! Can I get a woohoo???? Is is wrong to admit that I am super excited and every time I hear/see the preview on tv I get all giddy and act like I am one of the ladies in the audience!! Happy Friday to everyone!!


  1. Let's see if I can help. 1) Copy the code underneath the blog's button 2) Go into the post you're writing. Above the post to the left, you'll see the words "compose" and "html." Click on "html." 3) Paste the button code into the post. 4) Click on "compose." 5) Now you should see the button and it should link to the blog when you post it. (Maybe there's a faster way, but that's how I would do it.) Hope that helps!

  2. I was going to give you a step-by-step but Tammy beat me to it! :)
    One thing I do is highlight a word or pic in my post and then click on the link button. When the pop-up appears I paste the link (address of the site) in the appropriate box.

  4. I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!!! I and high hopes for my blog as well. I have gotten buttons to show up like twice. Most of the time I just add a like then a pic of their button :)
    I want the buttons on the side of my blog as well. Not to mention a button of my own!!!! :0
    Thanks Tammy for the tip :)

  5. If you want it to show up on the side, do this:
    -On your blog design page, click Layout
    -On the sidebar, click "Add a Gadget"
    -Scroll through and select, HTML Java Script
    -Paste in the code!
    While still in layout, you can then drag it around on your sidebar until it is where you want.
    I hope this makes sense! If not, e-mail me at, and I'll send you a quick video.

  6. Another newbie here-your blog is adorable! I actually wrote a "Wanted" poster asking for a blogging mentor (that and for more followers). Fortunately everyone in the blogosphere is so willing to help-we just have to ask!

    Stop by and check out my blog sometime!
