Learning How to Blog

We are working on our 3rd full month of blogging and everyday I try to read up on "Blog Tips".  This week I figured out how to add a Blog Button!!! Thanks to some great tips on Blogs that I follow and pins on Pinterest.

Check out our button - tell me what you think - I need all the advice I can get!!! I think I need to work on the borders - they don't seem to be even?  Oh, well, not too bad for my first try.

 I learned how to make the button on PicMonkey thanks to a great tutorial by Something Swanky .

I used a post on eHow to figure out how to add the button with the text box underneath.

Wow!  I actually did it myself and it only took a couple of hours! When you work full time, you have to squeeze in 30 minutes here and 30 minutes there, so I actually completed it over 2 nights.  Slow and Steady wins the race - right?

Here are some other great posts that I have used for blogging tips - 

Can't believe how much I have learned in such a short amount of time!  Thanks to everyone for helping an Old Dog learn some new tricks!


  1. I haven't had time to try the Add Button tutorial yet but I got one for you.
    Go here so when you comment on blogs you're not a NO REPLY commentor. I wanted to reply to a comment you made on my blog but couldn't. So go check out this tip.

    I enjoy your blog by the way.

    1. Carla - Thanks so much for the tip. I thought I had everything set up correctly but missed checking off that one little button!!!! There's just so much to learn.

      Thank you! I really enjoy your blog too. I'm going to leave a comment on your and I would really appreciate it if you could let me know if it works now!

      I think I can count you as a Blog Buddy now!
