Todd, what nice buttons you have! – Why thank you I just had them upgraded

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Ok, Ok, I've gotten enough requests through the blog comments and e-mails that ask me if I will reveal the secret, but don't be disappointed when it really isn't that hard, and I'm not a super genius having created them.

The first thing you need to do is go to http://www.aaa-buttons.com/ and pick out a button that you like the looks of and download a .JPG of it.

Then the next thing you need to do is use your favorite photo editing software and add text to the button. Once again fairly easy, just bring up the photo in your software, go to edit, and click on add text, and then save it again.

Now you are ready to add it to your blog like I have. Now what you do is add it to your blog like you would any other picture. Now that you have done that, click on the button and when it has the little "re-size dots" around it, go to the top of the blog and click on the hyperlink button and direct the button to where ever you want it to go.

And there you are, you now have buttons just like mine at the bottom of your blog. I hope this was helpful and stay around, you never know what other little ideas I may come up with.

Okay,Okay, I bookmarked it so I can have big buttons, too. Think of all the big buttons you will be responsible for out here! Aren't you proud?  If my buttons get arrested,can I call you to come bail me out??

8-) seriously, thanks for the secret formula.

Cait - E-mail me when you get your buttons working, I would love to see how they look.

Matthew - Not a problem, don't mind giving back as so many before me have.

Donald - Can't wait to see how they look.

Carolyn - I checked your blog, and didn't see any buttons. Kinda hoping to see how you changed them up and how they looked.

Jason - You are my twin, you don't need any upgrading you are perfect! - ROFL

Rick - Look forward to reading more from you in 2008!

Frances  - Amazing? Don't talk to my wife, she may disagree.

Christine - Hope it helps.

Dionne - You can decide that when you put them into your blog as a picture, if you look at the tabs as you ad the picture the 2nd tab lets you choose size.

James - You know me well enough, when everyone else has buttons, I will have switches.

Christopher
- I will check out that site also.

Wayne - My hits to my website went up last month by 500, so I have to assume it is in part due to the buttons.

Lori - It doesn't bother me so much, if it helps then I don't care. I find most won't do it because it involves extra work.

Meghan - Not a problem, glad I could help.

Rebecka - Have fun, but not too much fun.

Bonnie - NO! I don't supply bail money to anyone! You put yourself in the situation, then I can't help you.

Ross - It really keeps them focused on you instead of other rain members.

Jill - Can't wait until we can meet up again, you are so eager to learn and you can help out the other newbies understand the power of the rain.

I have the buttons all made!! I have them on my computer harddrive. I can't get them to transfer to my blog like I want them. Do I put them in the wysiwyg? or the other one and link them to the site I want them to go?

How do I get them to actually "subscribe" to my blog?

To the unknown blogger... Click subscribe to your own blog under your name and then copy the link in the address bar and put that as the link to the subscribe button.
