Thanks to Amee with Madame Deals for sharing how to make your own blog button!

The button everyone has. I don’t mean belly.  I mean blog buttons. This is the easiest way to promote who you are.  I am going to show you how to make on in under 5 minutes.

Where do you get them?

You can make your own. I will show you the easiest way I know. I say if I can do it anyone can do it.

Step 1: Think of your theme

Step 2: Search for or create an image to use for your button. Here are a couple of sites that have nice images. Make sure that they are not copyrighted.

Step 3: Open your image in a FREE editing tools

    I followed your directions, but when I put the button on my website and click on it, it goes to the photobucket website. How do I make it go to my website? I tried linking it to the website when I put it in my design, but it still goes to photobucket. Thanks! I love my button and would love for it to work.
