Creating Buttons for blogs (and other blog qs)

I have seen a lot of bloggers and authors have created buttons for others to place on their page.  How do you create the image and html coding that goes with it? 

For those that have a personalized image (avator or logo for your site) did you do it yourself or have someone else do it?  Did you draw it by hand or use a tool or site if you created it yourself?

Thanks for the help.  I was looking at personalizing it up a bit on my site but still doing a clean look overall.

Hey Amber,

Try this site: http://www.mycoolrealm.com/sandbox/gbgen/

You just need to create your own image and post it anywhere on the internet. Where it says image url, just right click the image and click 'copy image location' and that's your image's url. You can even post the image on twitter or facebook. I hope you can come check out my blog as well!

Thanks,

Thanks so much for your help!

The site Amber gave you is a good one for making buttons that people can grab your html and post it on their site. If you want to make a button using images and text I would suggest downloading the free gimp program. It's a really cool graphics program and you can find tutorials for all sorts of things you can do with it on youtube :)

sweet! Thank you for your help!

Funny you should ask.  I just created a two-part series about this.  The first part was published today and it details how to create a logo.  The second part will be published in a few days and will include very detailed instructions for how to create and use a button using the Blogger format, what you can do with it, and why you should have one!  Please stay tuned, but first, read part 1.
