Add Copyable Code for your Blog Button

Alrighty, there has been several requests for the buttons that have copyable code. 
If you don't know how to make a button just head on over here, and my tutorial will give you some step by step directions.
If you've already made your button, then here's your next step. All you need to do is copy this code and insert your information and you'll have a button that others can copy and repost.

[1]Copy the grey area
[2] Input your blog address in the "Blog URL" area
[3]Input your picture's image code into the "Image URL" section

Now you are able to copy the whole code into either the design section of your blog or into the "edit html" section of your post. It really is as easy as that.
Here's an example from my list of possible buttons. And no I haven't decided on one yet! So help a girl out and let me know which one you like!

  4. Thanks for this post Becca. Lots of times I have had to copy the photo & add a link of certain blogs who don't have workable buttons. Hopefully they read this! Following your blog now.I would love for you to show this off at my Wickedly Crafty Saturdays! Help pass the word around that they can now create a working link button. http://wiccanmakesometoo.blogspot.com/2011/07/wickedly-crafty-saturdays.html
